You're old, you're old, you're old, you're old you're so fucking old and I'm telling jurassic, thirassic, murassic oh I give up, it's not worth the spelling I climbed your face I climbed your spine I reached the base I spent some time An avalanche of shit that's it, I quit This couldn't be what we had in mind You are an iceberg You are an iceberg You're colder inside the outside Than you are in the center You are an iceberg These aren't nice words You're melting away, cold liquid decay Except 3 months in the winter I am the first adventurer to explore your recesses uncharted Now I return, I have been spurned, hypothermic and, oh, brokenhearted Frostbitten and battered, Clothing in tatters, My hero's pride buried in snow And it didn't even matter My colleagues at the Adventurers Club Laugh me to the street at the failure I've become We got our biggest tools We drilled, drilled, drilled, yeah We drilled straight into you To find your source, your icy heart We made a me-sized hole, I ventured in, to the deep and boundless cold beheld there was nothing to behold.

And maybe now I see your short arms can't be put around me And maybe now I wish when I was lost you hadn't found me Oh no And maybe now your scrapes and cuts are bleeding you to empty and like a sieve your insides out are showing far too quickly Everybody thinks I'm crazy "His brain is dying Maybe he's just getting lazy He gave up trying" Oh no, oh no, it's crashing down again And this might not be my goodbye And this might not be regret But if you wonder if I wish that things were different, yeah, you bet Maybe now I'm livin' the good life But I'd trade it all back in I'd keep '06 on repeat So we could do it all again '07 it started showing '08 I put off knowing '09, '010, oh not again '11 broke my will to live Cause I can take it Yeah I can take it And I can take it But I can't take it forever He ran so hard he could barely breathe last place in a one man race for a stupid dream She cried so hard that she couldn't move paralyzed from her knees to her eyes destined to lose

Hospital visit heart attack Couldn't find one so they sent me back I broke my back, I broke my spine And my bed is empty and I may never be fine Sing sad sack words to disinterested girls Go home alone and drink to her I'll go under the knife Stupid limbs can't seem to steer this life Keep cutting til I come out right When you're the worst how do you get better? I'll make myself lesser than ever Cut me down until we fit together No guts, no brain, empty confusion Just worthless veins, failed blood transfusions My good intentions and honest trying Left me godless, full of sawdust, and painfully pining On a couch in an office spreading myself open Lost plus lonely times vicious equals fucking hopeless Arms and legs This sick appendage Will be suspended If you're offended If I remove the bad parts Will you give me your heart? We can get a good start Arms and legs

If you're looking for me you better check under the sea That is where you'll find me Underneath the Sealab underneath the water Sealab at the bottom of the See how long I hold my breath And live among the hammerheads In a waterbed I sleep When I'm living in the deep I'll be down here a while, Living my waterlogging style Underneath the Sealab underneath the water Sealab at the bottom of the Where there is no light at all The sea life gently calls Please don't try to find me I'll be underneath the Sealab underneath the water Sealab at the bottom of the sea
