about

The Man kicks things off by finally telling everyone exactly what he thought about them while he was alive.

lyrics

I will go on. I am not gone!
I never died! I'll hide inside.
Become what you are: the world in a jar.

You never knew. I'm not like you!
I was not fine. I made you shine.
I am what I am. I don't give a damn.

The man in the corner, following orders,
Someone it's safe to ignore.
Open the door. There's so much more.

I set you free. You can't end me.

You can't understand it. My mind has expanded.
The science is thundering through.
What did you do? The joke is on you.

I had no home. You should have known.
You found me odd. I danced with God.

A man on a mission, my own coalition,
I searched for the truth in the sky.
How could I die? Kiss me goodbye.

You never cared. You never dared. You don't deserve to know me.
I was depressed. You never guessed. I was the best at hiding.
I knew the path. I did the math. Now you will never find me.
Now you will never know me.
Now I will never need you.
Can’t reach me. Here in my jar.
