Lyrics

   I'm going back
   Of course I am
   As if I ever had a choice
   Back to what I always knew I was
   On the inside
   Back to what I really am
   Look at this pathetic place I made
   With little bits of sticks and hair
   And anything I found along the way
   And tell yourself, you know?
   You're not really what you know you are
   You know?
   Of course you do
   I think I may have even listened to you
   I think I may have even listened to you
   At the height of my demise
   
   Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe…
   Break through the surface and breathe
   
   I am forgiven
   I am free
   I am a field on fire
   
   And oh my God, I have missed you
   It has been so long
   And I am stronger than I have ever been in my decline
   I am stronger than I have ever been in my decline
   For now I know, now I know, now I know for certain
   Now I know for certain
   Oh, burn motherfucker
   Carry the carcass and throw it on
   Pull up a chair and watch
   The flies come roaring out
   And will surround the entire world
   And blacken out the sky and every last one of you
   Like a plague of locusts
   Like an exit
   Like an end
   Like an end
   Like an end
   Like the end
   
   Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe…
   Break through the surface and breathe
   
   I am forgiven
   I am free
   I am a field on fire
   
   I can't tell if I am dreaming anymore

Additional lyrics printed on the physical component include:

   Now I know for certain
   Shedding any
   Burn motherfucker
   Like an end
   Like an end
   Like the fucking end
   Like the end
   It's getting hard to know which side is the dream
