Lyrics

Every atom will pass away
There's really nothing that I can say
I am becoming the ether over the Earth
Whoa

So tell me, what should I do with you?
I need someone I can listen to
Somebody who can remind me what I'm worth
Whoa

Hey, everybody,
Can you tell me which of y'all got it going on?
My head is up in a cloud today
Hey, everybody,
Can you tell me which of y'all got it going on?
My head is up in a cloud today

I'm getting lost in the stratosphere
While everybody is drinking beer
And telling me to draw blood on the dotted line
Whoa

The person that I thought would rescue me
Turns out was always betraying me
So you can stay at your party and have a good time

Lookin' out on the turbulence
Letting go is my greatest strength
Giving up and dissolving in the night
Whoa

Hey, everybody,
Can you tell me which of y'all got it going on?
My head is up in a cloud today
I'm really sorry
Can you tell me which of y'all got it going on?
My head is up in a cloud today

I thought that you were a perfect fit
But everything good must come to an end
I held on until I thought my hands would break
Hey, everybody,
Can you tell me which of y'all got it going on?
My head is up in the clouds today
