lyrics

Safe man
Looks a lot like a dead man
Got a thirty-year plan that’ll see him to his grave
He’s got a safe life
Always has to measure twice
Then he's gotta measure one more time
He’s measuring the grave
This is a song from the inside of the egg
Can’t somebody somewhere come and help me break out
Soon enough he’s gonna die
Calendar is flipping by
He lies there in the nighttime and wonders how to change
Reaches out and wakes his wife
Says, “Honey, I wanna live,
I wanna try
Let’s be brave and terrified instead of jumping in the grave”
This is a song from the inside of the egg
Can’t somebody somewhere come and help me break out
Come on
Pretty dark in here now
Get me out of here now
Nothin’ left to fear but fear
I’m ready now
It feels too small
Beat my head on the wall
Think I’m doing it right now
Cause I see a little bit of light now
Soon enough we’re gonna die
Calendar is flipping by
We lie there in the nighttime and wonder how to change
So come and gaze into my eyes
Tell me what you wanna try
Let’s be brave and terrified in honor of the grave
This is a song from the inside of the egg
Can’t somebody somewhere come and help me break out
Come on
Pretty dark in here now
Get me out of here now
Nothin’ left to fear but fear
I’m ready now
It feels too small
Beat my head on the wall
Think I’m doing it right
Cause I see a little bit of light
This is a song from the inside of the egg
Stand back
This is a song from the inside of the egg
Gonna crack
This is a song from the inside of the egg
