I Could Do Better on My Own

Isolation is a most dangerous drug

I want to go live inside a cave
It’s the easiest way I can slip away and escape this mess I’ve made
And I’m never gonna let you in, and I’m never gonna tell you when
I’ve reached the point of no return, you pick and choose, and you live and learn

I wanna be invisible for a day
It’s the easiest way I can fade away and escape this mess I’ve made
And I’m never gonna let you see, whatever becomes of me
Cause I don’t deserve a final word, when you cannot hear what you have not heard

I’m falling into darkness, don’t let me go
I’m growing fond of being lonely, better the demons that you know
It’s time I face this world alone
I could do better on my own

I wanna go blend into the crowd
It’s the trick I’ve found, when I’m stuck around, these totems I’ve burned down
You’ll never recognize my face, I’m a master chameleon of the human race
And I haven’t decided what I look like yet, can’t be reminded when you can’t forget

I’m gonna go be a stupid clown
It’s the trick I’ve found, when I’m stuck around, happy people while feeling down
You’ll never truly know my heart, it was ripped away before you could ever start
To find a way to get through to me, you’re trying to chase a phantom through infinity

I’m falling into darkness, don’t let me go
I’m growing fond of being lonely, better the demons that you know
I’m falling into darkness, don’t let me go
I’m growing fond of being lonely, better the demons that you know
It’s time I face this world alone
I could do better on my own
