  • Freeze frame on me
    Hm, can you read it on my face?
    Data mining from old memories

    Hm, sunflowers and a smile catching
    Hm, welcoming a heartbeat to the family
    Light tie lanterns, wish bound in the night

    Who, what, when?
    All in one stir of a teaspoon
    I'm shaken and gasping for air

    Lifeline, before and after
    In an instant of great white gravity (gravity)
    Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
    Every cell in my body, brace,
    Woah, and keep breathing,
    And keep breathing

    Gracious future,
    Hm, won't you lend a hand to pull me through?
    'Cause me and you've got some things we need to see to
    (Let's get to work, let's get to work)

    Adventures in the multi-verse
    Effervescent candlelit closeness
    Plus, I feel like I've just got the hang of this living thing

    Who, what, when?
    All in one stir of a teaspoon
    I'm shaken and gasping for air, air, air, air

    I will, on one day,
    And sometime, in some place,
    I've still got some go in me yet

    Lifeline, before and after
    In an instant of great white gravity (gravity)
    Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
    Every cell in my body, brace (in my body, brace)

    Rise high, cling to the laughters
    For that moment of broken tragedy (tragedy)
    Bright-eyed, the world is against me
    Every cell in my body, brace,
    Woah and keep breathing,
    Keep breathing,
    Still breathing

    My bones stay strong,
    My days, still long,
    My heart has many heartbeats,
    And home is where love is

    Ah
    Ah
    Ah
    Ah

    Lifeline, before and after
    In an instant of great white gravity
    Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
    Every cell in my body, brace

    Rise high, cling to the laughters
    For that moment of broken tragedy
    Bright-eyed, the world is against me
    Every cell in my body, brace,

    And keep breathing
    Keep breathing
    And keep breathing
    Keep breathing
    And keep breathing, ah
