Come on in and take me on an override
Stuck inside and up all night at Dave's
Trouble's far away, Mother's in the cage
Nothing's gonna pinch this nerve of mine

I wanna make it right
I wanna make it right

Close the door and pull the shades and climb the walls
Feel medicine heal the lines of age
I'm here and now I'm gone, I'm there and far beyond
Nothin's gonna pinch this nerve of mine
And nothing's gonna pinch this nerve of mine

I wanna make it right
I wanna make it right

I'm on the wire, over and higher
Over the pretense, over the spire
On and connected

I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating

Alone, alone, alone, alone
Alone, alone, alone, alone
Alone, alone, alone, alone

Breathe and take in and gently blow it on
Drink it down and swallow hard and gaze
Hold the potion up, stare your shadow down
Remember to forget and then rename your shame

I wanna make it right
I wanna make it right

I wanna make it right
I wanna make it right

I'm on the wire, over and higher
Over the pretense, over the spire
On and connected

I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating

Alone, alone, alone, alone
