lyrics

here comes a late gasp from a living man, as if i hadn't said enough
i'm almost always doing all i can, never seem to level up
and it never quite adds up

but there's a picture of a picture of a picture in my mind
though it's fading fading fading, i still pray to it each night
there was once an inkling of a tinkling of a twinkling in my eyes
thought it's dated jaded faded, i need you to see it shine

frequent stops. do not follow.
i'm no hero (watch me, though)
i'm no hero, watch me closely though
cause, hey, you never know

yet another late gasp from a living man, hope i don't get my hopes up
this time every line's all mine, gonna burn a disc and lock it up
cause i know the word ain't never catching up

still there's a picture of a picture of a picture in my mind
though it's fading fading fading, i still pray to it each night
the tiny window slightly cracked atop that tower up so high
is where i'm climbing climbing climbing till i fall back down & die
there's still an inkling of a tinkling of a twinkling in my eyes
thought it's near-disintegrated, need you all to see it shine

frequent stops. do not follow.
i'm no hero (watch me, though)
i'm no hero, watch me closely though
cause, hey, you never know
you never know

had a pitcher of a tincture of the elixir of life
when we moved out of the valley, guess i left it behind
in the sideyard by the brick wall, now it's a day spa for flies
i'd still take a swig, i'd simply plug my nose & close my eyes
