lyrics

saw it coming I knew
like a big crystal ball
for somebody like me
there would finally be this
I lost my confidence
I must learn to defend it
but they won't let me rest
it kills me and I let it

baby I'm dead again
but I'll promise to come back when I've decided again who I am
finally I'm dead again
and I'll try to rebuild all the structures that this soul needs to survive
baby I'm dead again, yes
but I promise to see you when I've decided again who I am
finally I'm dead again
and I'll try to rebuild all the structures that this soul needs to survive
this deconstruction

it's my brother I hear
it's my mother I see
not applause from men I see
I don't want to be here
I lost my sanity, oh yes
it's pryin' at the floorboards
but they won't let me leave
this house they say is my home

baby I'm dead again
but I promise to come back when I've decided again who I am
finally I'm dead again, hm
and I'll try to rebuild all the structures that this soul needs to survive
this deconstruction
baby I'm dead again, yes I am
but I aim to return when I've finally decided where to descend, mm yes
finally I'm dead again, oh yes I am
but I'll come back when I understand the destruction we build in our lives

oh yeah
oh yeah
hmm... yes

baby I'm dead again
but I'll promise to come back when I've decided again who I am, yes I will
finally I'm dead again, baby
and I'll try to rebuild all the structures that this soul needs to survive
this deconstruction
baby I'm dead again, oh yes I am, oh
but I aim to return when I've finally decided where to descend
on this lonely planet
finally I'm dead again, yes I am
but I'll come back when I understand the destruction we build in our lives

it's my brother I hear, hm
it's my mother I see
