lyrics

Young boy fascinated by sound;
Took to water and almost drowned
Young boy didn't like what he was,
Re-invented to fit the buzz

He ignored omens of a zero hour
People get hurt when you squander power
They'd say 'Child, you're a bit absurd'
But he kept on flapping like a thunderbird...

Sometimes anger would beam from his eyes
People ran from the rain that betrayed the skies
Was he doomed by his gift to be torn asunder,
Or was he born to fly into such sweet thunder?

The whale's determined to kill the sea
Look at that asinine irony
Good ones come, but great ones go,
Pulled into the crypt of an undertow

The boy could feel the light like sheets
In the end, self-awareness was true defeat
Now, cooler than the wind, he's a Model-T,
Trying not to sink in the sonic sea

Grew to shapeshift into a man into a mask,
At the bottom of the totem, he's a star at last
