LyricsEdit

You've been breaking down for far too long

Far too many moons since you felt well and strong

You see, you could say goodbye, but you don’t have to die, not ever

Engineer the wires to your brain

Architect a code so you won't feel the pain

With your family by your side, and vigor in your eyes forever

Live forever

I'm way up, a God in size

Beyond the reach of mortals, I shed my human side

Farther, oh father

I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside?  

Final Paradigm

What's it really mean to be a man?  

Think about your answer, but please understand

While it's natural to fear, I'll make it disappear forever

I forever

I'm way up, a God in size

Beyond the reach of mortals, I shed my human side

Farther, oh father

I stare at my reflection have I lost that boy inside?  

Final Paradigm

Singular I am

I have to question if these thoughts are mine

To live forever, but did something in me die

I claw at my skin, but I can't feel it inside

I know the agony of pain would hurt so much better

I'm way up, so far up, have I lost myself tonight?  

Father, oh father, have you lost that boy you used to know?
