Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★½

"There's banging on the wall
It's 5am I've got no sleep at all
Just thoughts of how I might
struggle through tomorrow
Too much time in one day
Too much time to occupy
With boring thoughts
And boring moods
And boring bedtimes
Won't tell a single soul
that my soul's gone
It's hard to write this song
It's all a joke
It's all been wrote down by
someone who's probably dead

"I might be leaving soon
I might be leaving soon

"There's laughter from below
It's 1am how could you have known?
The thoughts of silence that had me
From going back to sleep at night
Wish I could call someone I love

"To stop thinking of myself
Long look in the mirror
Just looks back so blankly
You were right: I can't do this
I'm going crazy, it's fine by me
now you can see
How much I've become empty

"I might be leaving soon
I might be leaving soon
I might be leaving soon

"My dreams are full of what's not real
I'll fly away and save the world
I'll make you proud someday
I just won't be around to see your face
My life is full of what's not here
I'll go away and save myself
I'll make you proud someday
I just won't be around to see your face"
