"It's all uncharted..."

No words, my tears won't make any room for more
And it don't hurt, like anything I've ever felt before
This is no broken heart, no familiar scars
This territory goes uncharted

Just me, in a room sunk in a house in a town
And I don't breathe
No, I never meant to let it get away from me
Not too much to hold
Everybody has to get their hands on gold
And I want uncharted
Stuck under the ceiling I made
I can't help but feeling

I'm going down, follow if you want
I won't just hang around, like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So, don't ask me how to get started
It's all uncharted

Each day, I'm counting up the minutes 'til I get alone
'Cause I can't stay in the middle of it all
It's nobody's fault
But I'm so low, never knew how much I didn't know
Oh, everything is uncharted
I know I'm getting nowhere when I only sit and stare

Like I'm going down, follow if you want
I won't just hang around, like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So, don't ask me how to get started
It's all uncharted

Jump start my kaleidoscope heart
Love to watch the colors fade
They may not make sense but they sure as hell made me
I won't go as a passenger, no
Waiting for the road to be laid
Though I may be going down
I'll take in flame over burning out

Compare where you are to where you want to be and you'll get nowhere

I'm going down, follow if you want
I won't just hang around, like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So, don't ask me how to get started
I'm going down, follow if you want
I won't just hang around, like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So, don't ask me how to get started
It's all uncharted
