[verse 1: aaron livingston]
like when autumn leaves fall
down from the trees
there goes my honey bee
i've lost a lot of sleep to dreams
and i do not miss them yet
i wouldn't wish them on than worst of enemies
let them burn, go from here
like when autumn leaves

[verse 2: black thought]
to catch a thief, who stole the soul i prayed to keep
insomniac, bad dreams got me losing sleep
i'm dead tired, my mind playing tricks, deceit
a face in the glass, unable to admit defeat
all that i am, all that i was is history
the past unraveled, adding insult to this injury

i'm fighting the battle for the soul of the century
destiny is everything that i pretend to be
look, and what i did came back to me eventually
the music played on, and told me i was meant to be awake
it's unresolved like everything i had at stake
illegal activity controls my black symphony
orchestrated like it happened incidentally
oh, there i go, from a man to memory
damn, i wonder if my fam will remember me

[verse 3: aaron livingston]
i've lost a lot of sleep to dreams
and i do not miss them yet
i wouldn't wish them on the worst of enemies
let them burn, go from here
like when autumn leaves
