Step on the plane where he lost his heart
keeps his composure so he doesn't go and fall apart
the eyes are the window to the soul
so he wore his new hat down low so they never show
to his he sees his tears as a weakness
soft spoken genius, always hiding his secrets
staring out the window, he sees what he's leaving
ten feet off the ground, still wishing he was dreaming
not a city or a town, but a home he believed in.
He's singing out loud with a voice they can't hear him
he's trying to drown out all the noise from the speakers
the engines, the sound of the wings breaking the wind
they're staring at him now, but he'll never let them in
the voices in his head started handing him his pen
but they wouldn't let him write so he can have control again.
He's losing his mind
breaking through the clouds
he's trapped in his seat and there's no way out
the people all around saying "sir, calm down"
he tried to speak back, but no words came out
the other side of him escaped, do you believe him now?
The lights went dark, the world went silent
even the boy who went and lost his mind went quiet
the cabin was shaking
the captain didn't speak
of course it happened to be his last flight that week
the people were screaming
his breath was his last
he heard people pray before their whole world
