Insignifigant

Can you see me up on the building
From down on the pavement or out in the crowd?
Can you see me through the glare of the lamppost?
I’m walking a tightrope into the moon

I don’t want to feel so different
But I don’t want to be insignificant
And I don’t know how to see the same things different now

Oh, could you see me?
I’m one in a million
I am Icarus falling out of the sun
Could you see me fall in the light of spotlights
And jackknife through night as black as a bedroom
And white as a lie?

I don’t want to feel so different
But I don’t want to be insignificant
And I don’t know how to see the same things different now

Diving through the dark
While the night turns blue
Are you aware of your intentions?
Because I wear my intentions so clear

If you see me wading through water
Come drown in the river right in front of the world
You can wash your face and hands in the stream of my anger
It’s as bright as white paper
And as dark as a girl

I don’t want to feel so different
But I don’t want to be insignificant
And I don’t know how to see the same things different now
