Lyrics

Yesterday I stepped outside
I saw the world for the very first time
An evil grin and evil eyes
It said to me, ?you?re stuck for life?

---------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
I?m the incredible shrinking boy
I get smaller and smaller the more I know
The incredible shrinking boy
I?ve got a heart of gold but
No one knows about me
---------------------------------------------------

I walk through fields of corpses now
Toward a castle far away
A brilliant wizard waits for me
To erase my life and ease the pain

---------------------------------------------------
REPEAT CHORUS
---------------------------------------------------

The incredible shrinking boy
The incredible shrinking boy
The incredible shrinking boy
The incredible shrinking boy?



OUTRO

All of my life has built up to this day
And I?m destined to leave but I?m pressured to stay
In a world where the emptiness eats us alive
Because we?re programmed to live with no hopes to survive
I can?t breathe! I can?t see! I can?t feel anything!
All those innocent days have been stolen from me
As I run to the edge of the world and I cry
I look back at my past and I shut both my eyes
I will miss my friends. I will miss the times
When my brain was so pure and my dreams were alive
But the wizard says now I must leave it behind
This is the last day of my life
