lyrics

See what you’ve done?
Please believe me when I tell you.
To free and then lock it away all encaged
23 years, it took just to give in.
So what’s the point?
Reservations that I’ve learned now.

This apathetic comeback, a sad attempt at meek revenge.
Complete ineptitude enlightens and exaggerates the stench.
Infatuation burns away, incinerating schematics gray
How it ends is changing fast, insinuating quick decay.

All so alarming will I ever find you again?
Hide away yourself, oh so we’ve lost all sense, direction all gone
All sense of perfect, selection’s on.

Another failed advance, a sad attempt at connection.
Complete ineptitude, exaggerating the stench of you.
Intimidation lingers on, abstinence comes on so strong
How it ends is changing fast, proclaiming nothing never ever lasts.

All so alarming will I ever find you again?
Hide away yourself, oh so we’ve lost all sense, direction all gone
All sense of perfect, selection’s on.

Pieces of my life pushed aside
Live to run, seek to hide.
Rediscovering parts you’ve had
Oh never let it go or leave it wasted.

Pieces of our lives left by the wayside.
Left to rot, seek to hide.
Rediscovering parts you’ve had
Oh never let it go or leave it wasted.

Now turn me off.
All motivation is fading fast.
I’ll steal your confidence.
Try on the façade for a glimpse.
Would you like a fix?
Yeah give me something just to take the edge off.
To binge in this indulgence.
I can’t stop the questioning.

Pieces of my life pushed aside
Live to run, seek to hide.
Rediscovering parts you’ve had
Oh never let it go or leave it wasted.

Pieces of our lives left by the wayside.
Left to rot, seek to hide.
Rediscovering parts you’ve had
Oh never let it go or leave it wasted.

Sleepwalking the down the streets.
We torture ourselves to create.
Staring into those cold blue eyes
oh tell me who you used to be.
Sovereign sitting on your throne
Take a bow and cast me out
Or open wide and let me in
Your little kingdom oh so sweet
Those so lucky to fill that void
Without a thought, without a noise
They have a gift a talent so,
So sought after by the cold.

Feel that shake? We’re finally awake.
We’ll escape, all willing copulate.
From inside, we seek to hide.
Make this climb, fall to a new height.

Where am I and who are you?
What am I doing here?

Now did you feel that shake?
We’re finally awake.
We’ll escape, all willing copulate.
From inside, we seek to hide.
Make this climb, oh fall to a new height.

All so alarming will I ever find you again?
Hide away yourself, oh so we’ve lost all sense, direction all gone
All sense of perfect, selection’s on.

Pieces of my life pushed aside
Live to run, seek to hide.
Rediscovering parts you’ve had
Oh never let it go or leave it wasted.

Pieces of our lives left by the wayside.
Left to rot, seek to hide.
Rediscovering parts you’ve had
Oh never let it go or leave it wasted.

Where am I and who are you?
What am I doing here?
Where am I and who are you?
How did I end up here?
Where am I and who are you?
What am I doing here?
Where am I and who are you?
