 Somebody help me find my way back down


 There's nobody left for me to lap around


 Everyone's breaking past my speed of sound


 I am a dictator I keep my soul surrounded


 Watching my life, Waaah - tching my life, Watching my life ....


 


 I'm watching my life go by


 


 Watching my life go by
