lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm not the man I was the day the coppers took my face away
Away, away, a mistake they put me away
So, I wondered who my mother was as they dragged me towards that prison bus
Sent away, sent away, sent away, they put me away
You haven't heard the last from me
The science of catastrophe
You'll get yours (you'll get yours)
I'll get mine (not this time)
Then we'll see if we can die

[Chorus]
My mind, it's running faster
It's running faster in all of the wrong ways
I'm so lost, I've found my way
Oh, I, I am not the answer
But I've got the answer
I won't walk away
When they're talking down my name
I'm the fall guy they can blame

[Verse 2]
So you've lost your mind quite literally
Then you beg me for some sympathy
Well it's right where we left it that night
All over the wall
The ceiling still rains bits of you
I never got you off my shoes
So I throw them away
Yeah I throw, throw them away

[Chorus]
My heart!
It beats me senseless
And all my senses seem to slip away
Oh, I'm so lost, I've found my way
But I, I am not defenseless
And I've seen my purpose
I will have my day
When they're talking down my name
I'm the fall guy they can blame
So I might as well play the part
Yeah,Yeah,Yeah!

[Verse 3]
The ceiling still rains bits of you
I never got you off my shoes
So I throw them away
Yeah I throw, throw them away

Oh, you haven't heard the last from me
The science of catastrophe
You'll get yours (you'll get yours)
I'll get mine (not this time)
Then we'll see if we can die
Oh!
