lyrics

Thomas is at his desk.
Thomas is at his desk.
Thomas is...sitting quietly at his desk.
Lost in that girl’s eyes.

And Thomas is perfectly content.

And his...boss approaches —
“Thomas, I’d like to speak with you privately”
And Thomas experiences acute dread.

This is where...Thomas loses his job.

This is a tipping point for Thomas.

I’m alive.

That girlsssss eyesssss
This girlsssss eyesssss Adam
That girlsssss eyesssss
This girlsssss eyesssss

I’m not this job.

“This has been a strange day”
“But this is a wonderful day”
"And that can’t be taken from me”

So Thomas rode high,
As he walked out of that office,
Again, looking at the sky, enamored.

His delight muting a deep, terrific crack in the distance.
Across town, death and disaster approached,
Though Thomas is oblivious.

Because Thomas finally feels,
That he's doing right by himself.
Thomas sees that girls eyes,
And takes the long way home.

Though Thomas feels alive today,
Death and disaster loom.

Right then a gas main breaks below his office floor,
And his colleagues succumb without a fight.

This darkening sky is an anomaly—
It's a sign of something.

But blinded by his own optimism, by the swirling sky,
It's a sign of nothing to Thomas.

Thomas fails to see,
Just one foot, in front of the other.

Thomas fails to see,
Happily, aimlessly.

Thomas fails to see,
Drifting Away from reality.

Thomas fails to see,
The world coming down.

Thomas fails to see,
Just one foot, in front of the other.

Thomas fails to see,
Locked into her eyes.

Thomas fails to see,
Drifting away from reality.

Eyes shut the world comes down around him.

Thomassssss fails to see,
The world coming down.

Thomas fails to see,
Locked into her eyes.

Thomas fails to see,
Around the corner, death creeps.

Thomas fails to see,
The world coming down.

Thomas fails to see,
Around the corner, death creeps.

Thomas fails to see,
The world coming down.

Thomas fails to see
Around the corner, death creeps.

Around the corner,
Death is reaching out.
