if only you could see the sun set alight while tangled in the stark interwebs of lies smell the scent of all the wasted nights if only you could taste the poison that kept me alive then in the toxic wake at the point of decline when it all goes tame you would understand if only you could hear the clock of time the deafening ringing going down my spine see the sea I am drowning in if only you could take the drug that kept me alive then in the toxic wake at the point of decline when it all turns plain you will understand if only you could taste the poison

I waste my life in the head waste my life in my bed wonderful, so beautiful and dutiful hide myself in a mirror pretending I don't see her as if cast in a role with seven lives to spare one life more or less but when her doubtful smiles are all summed up and combined it still remains unclear which law to apply and, if I hide, I will never feel denied well, until the day, that is, until the day... so, spend your life on the knee act as if you don't hear me one life more or less and when your doubtful smiles are all summed up and combined it still remains unclear which law would apply no, if you hide, you will never feel defied well, until the day, that is, until the day... one life more or less

remember the rain? we took the longest possible way thought there was something that I forgot to say so I thought I'd let it known in a different way... weeks went on, felt like light years no galaxy was too far and as I slowly shifted gears and we ended up in another bar you went all deep I had to drink myself to sleep you went all nuclear it was peculiar how much you can clear in one sweep and you were good at so many things while I could barely sing or play the guitar though still today I think we haven't properly figured out who we really are months went on, felt like good years though I knew the end was never too far and as you slowly shifted gears and we left another bar you went all deep I had to drink myself to sleep you went all nuclear it was peculiar how much you can clear in one sweep

safe but insane confined within a life wearing thin then there's so much to say that's just how it begins at first it seems like a medicine and what do you say? ain't the beginnings great? that's how the end begins yet, are you in? the time is wearing thin time is wearing thin! and what do you say? ain't it going great? and then you hesitate you play it safe nothing can oscillate there comes the glitch just an average and that's the glitch an average that's how the end begins it's always the same always the same safe but insane
5.
deserting these streets leaving no trail don't trace me back I won't play this game 'cause I'm steering the wheel away I hear them calling, them beasts they are on their way to help me find what's left of the day 'cause I'm steering the wheel away steering the wheel away will you come with me? do you really need me? will you come with me? we could share this little getaway deserting these streets leaving no trail please help me find what's left of the day! 'cause I am steering the wheel away steering the wheel away will you come with me? and can you really hear me? will you come with me? don't we deserve this little getaway? will you come with me? and do you really need me? will you come with me? we could do with a little getaway let's get away!

for the life of me I can't explain this malady where's the grounds from which it transpires as far as I can see it is a common fallacy that we could get any higher still I wait on, wait and crave the sensuality that could bring out and lift my spirituality but it just keeps revolving revolving away and for the heck of me is there no one to tell me? you say, there is always a way as far as I can see mine is the common mentality though you, you could always see higher so I wait on, wait and crave the sensuality that could bring out and lift my spirituality though it would be a waste on me it would be a waste on me
