Follow me anywhere, out around
There is a shelter beneath the sound
You will find it to your taste.
And in the scene, in the eyes of it,
While you careen across the skies above it,
Let the moonlight kiss your face.

It's the drive, it's the black air,
Running wild fingers through your hair,
Blowing through your porous skin.
And as we cut our way through the rain,
Shatter the glass lines, part the chains,
Don't stop now - we're in!

Leave your loose skin and chalk bones
And we'll go farther down than Mexico
Put the crust of us behind.
And in the middle of the road below us,
Let the current of the tar corrode us,
Watch our bodies, slow, unwind.

So dissolve inside the blinding gale!
Your shards behind you a bitter trail -
Bless the rest of us and fly!
Terrible noises erupt, decay -
Terrible pressure as walls give way!
Tell me what it's like to die!
