The Melancholy

"It’s hard to talk about the importance of an imaginary hero. Heroes are important, heroes tell us something about ourselves. History books tell us who we used to be, documentaries tell us who we are now… But heroes tell us who we want to be. And a lot of our heroes depress me. When they made this particular hero they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank, or a warship, or an X Wing Fighter… They gave him a call box, from which you can call for help. And they didn’t give him a superpower, or pointy ears, or a heat ray— they gave him an extra heart… They gave him two hearts. That’s an extraordinary thing. There will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like The Doctor."

III. Long Way Down

(Intro)

I’ve been falling for so long.

That I can’t wait to hit the ground.

It’s a long way down.

it’s a long way down.

(Verse One)

No better than the demons I conjure.

Look in the mirror, all I see is a monster.

I look around me, all I see are imposters.

I look beside me; man this girl needs an Oscar.

… I don’t care if it’s real.

… I don’t care how you feel.

Double D’s on her— I don’t care if they’re real.

Nothing real about it; why do we even bother?

Sometimes I feel like The Doctor.

Or WhiskeyJack in Raraku.

Like Kvothe searching for Denna.

Like Inuyasha chasing after Naraku.

I can’t love you, it’s too soon for me.

I’m sorry, there’s nothing you can do for me.

Just do what makes you most happy.

Even if there’s no room for me.

(Bridge)

Going down slow now.

Fuck around, swear I’ll burn down this whole town.

I can’t run there’s nowhere left to go now.

So I guess I’m headed home now.

It’s a long way down.

 
(Outro)

I’ve been falling for so long.

That I can’t wait to hit the ground.

It’s a long way down.

it’s a long way down.

II. I Don’t Know

(Verse One)
If I shouted… “Fuck bitches” they’d be all about it

Girl this music is my high… I’d probably fall without it.

I’ll probably fall regardless; these dreams just seem the farthest.

Looking for brighter days ahead, because I’ve seen the darkest.

It’s kind of crazy, you know baby? This whole life thing.

Surrounded by the wrong women just trying to do the right thing.

I guess good guys & bad bitches aren’t compatible.

So if I want a bad bitch I need a heart that’s mechanical.

Yeah.

Heart— Tin Man. Diaphragm— Iron Man.

We’re all just looking for some answers— Iverson.

I forgot what I was saying, I don’t care what was she was saying.

I need sleep; I’m sick and tired of being tired man.

Insomniac, I know my son just wants his mommy back.

But as things stand between us, we could never be together.

Like our parents before us we will never see forever.

She scarred me, so all I can really say is I’m sorry…

(Bridge)

But it doesn’t really matter, cause all I do is make excuses.

In a world built on lies, how could anybody know what the truth is?

But the truth is— I don’t know.

I don’t know…

(Hook)

She said we’re better than that but I don’t think so.

But I appreciate the fact that you think so.

We’re faced with two options.

Either jump ship, or baby we can sink slow.

Yeah.

Honey when you live fast…

You die slow.

All your songs sound broken…

Yeah, I know.

All I do is make excuses.

All I do is make excuses.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

(Verse Two)
If I shouted… “Get money” they’d be all about it.

Girl this music is my high… I’d probably fall without it.

I’ll probably fall regardless; these dreams just seem the farthest.

Looking for brighter days ahead, because I’ve seen the darkest.

Please let’s not do this baby; it’s just something else that we’ll fight about.

I want to be happy, but then what the fuck would I write about?

I… I don’t know. Maybe I should send a text to you… 

But I don’t know who’s lying next to you.

You want that Vampire Life I’ll give that True Death to you.

Message in a bottle, I just really hope it gets to you.

Then she asked me “You don’t have anything left… Do you?”

“If life is meaningless, then what could I have meant to you?”

I don’t know… But it was never really about that.

I gave you my fucking heart, how am I supposed to live without that?

I guess you and I aren’t us anymore are we?

You scarred me, don’t insult me by saying you’re sorry.

(Bridge)
Cause it doesn’t really matter, when all you do is make excuses.

In a world built on lies, how could anybody know what the truth is?

But the truth is— I don’t know.

I don’t know…

(Hook)
She said we’re better than that but I don’t think so.

But I appreciate the fact that you think so.

We’re faced with two options.

Either jump ship, or baby we can sink slow.

Yeah.

Honey when you live fast…

You die slow.

All your songs sound broken…

Yeah, I know.

All you do is make excuses.

All you do is make excuses.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…

I. A Ways Away

(Intro)

… I don’t know where to start.

We used to be so Lois & Clark.

Since when did growing up mean growing apart?

You said the levees would break if I ever opened my heart.

Well, let it flood.

(Hook)

I’ve been running so long.

I’ve been lost for so long.

I’ve been gone for so long.

I know, I know.

There’s not much left to say.

I won’t ask you to stay.

My lonely Bee—

 Our love’s a ways away, I know.

I know…

I know…

Our love’s a ways away, I know.

(Verse One)

This is for us. For everything that’ll never be.

You know I’m not ok, you see through it when I pretend to be.

Room full of enemies. Foreign girls— Geneviève’s.

Sohka’s with Saki and Czechoslovakians.

Man, they done boxed me in. Look what they got me in.

Text say’s I’m immature. Ok, I probably am.

Hoes that I’m lobbying keep fucking up my Zen.

Everything’s wrong here… just keep fucking up my head.

Overheard “love is dead… and so is God.”

I guess, I’ve always been Against All Odds.

I mean, I’ve always been a little odd.

Clark Kent, though? No, I’m more General Zod.

Not to generalize. You’s in general— lie.

They’re taking shots at me like I’m wanted dead or alive.

“It gets better in time”… I sure hope so.

She said “It’s bout time that you let all of your ghosts go.”

And I agree… it’s just not that simple.

No role models; but this bottle is quite influential.

I should pace myself. You should save yourself.

Maybe, you were right all along. And I just hate myself.

She says everything that I’m too afraid to say myself.

“You could never run far enough to escape yourself.”

“Heroik… you have a ways away to go.”

(Hook)

I’ve been running so long.

I’ve been lost for so long.

I’ve been gone for so long.

I know, I know.

There’s not much left to say.

I won’t ask you to stay.

My lonely Bee—

 Our love’s a ways away, I know.

I know…

I know…

But there’s always a way, I know.

(Outro to Fade)

There’s always a way, I know.

There’s always a way I know.

I know.

All I do is make ex—
