What will I do about everything, everything?
What can I do to escape the mistakes I will make
Without knowing
Those dangerous moments when one fatal weakness
Can lead to confessions
That’s not a road I would willingly take
I don’t want to make that mistake

What can I say but that nothing is everything
I am alone but I’m everywhere, everyone
Floating above it all, near to the ceiling
I’m looking back down but I’m scared of this feeling

It’s almost too much, I could just fade completely
I’m rising too high to be anyone, anything
That’s not a flight that I’m ready to take
And I don’t want to make that mistake
I don’t want to make that mistake

Remember to look back but never forget
There are people you know that you haven’t yet met
Who will happily lead you down roads that you shouldn’t take
I don’t want to make that mistake

So many people are lost and deluded
They put on a face but inside they’re polluted
From too much of everything bad and distasteful
Emotions so numbingly hurtful and painful
I sympathize but I can’t save you, I’m sorry
It’s too much, I know, but don’t worry, don’t hurry
It’s not worth it, just take your time and relax
There will come some decisions you’d rather not make
You don’t want to make that mistake

I don’t want to make that mistake
I don’t want to make that mistake
