Atom Smasher

Atom Smasher

welcome to the chain reaction

the choices that we make

and this is just the same attraction

our molecules create

 

and then you’re standing on the interstate

flagging down a tow truck

thinking my god must’ve hit a spot of bad luck

how did i get here?

how do i walk away?

it’s the atom smasher

 

sometimes i am ashamed for thinking

that nothing really changes here

except the names and faces

and what we’re told to fear

 

and then i’m digging in my pockets

i’m searching for a few bucks

to bail me out of this mess

and buy myself some good luck

how did i get here?

i wish i could walk away

from the atom smasher

 

i didn’t mean to be born here

it just kinda happened

i didn’t mean to be broken

it’s just how it was

i didn’t mean to get stuck here

it just kinda happened

someday i swear i’ll escape this place

 

it’s a long road

between where i am and where i wanna be

and i don’t know if i’ll ever make it

it’s the atom smasher
