LyricsEdit

Seems I should have walked away

Reverse the wager I've no means to pay

Toto has pulled back the green tonight, in sight

And blue pills coat with such disdain

I've worn the shades for so long

That I've forgotten how to see

The curtain rises but who dares to pull the strings?  

I know this may be hard for you to believe in all

But you only exist because we allow it

I questioned all the voices in my head

Are they mine or have I been misled?  

Total understanding don't seem to mean a thing

You can see me on the silver screen, a figurine

Can you hear me scream?  

By the way of cosmic rays

A subtle breakdown jarred the code displays

A Simulation I can tell, our cell

Playing out a hopeless scene

We stand to loose all our charm

And faith just seems to wane

A billion years can seem a stunningly short time

You've been beaten down time and time again

But still, you find yourself at the center of it all

I questioned all the voices in my head

Are they mine or have I been misled?  

Total understanding don't seem to mean a thing

You can see me on the silver screen, a figurine

Can you hear me scream?  

You hear me?  You had one thing to do, one thing

And you fucked it up, fuck you, you piece of shit

Nurse, Patient 666158 needs to be sedated, we need 500 CCs

Oh, hello there dearie, I've been expecting you

Posturing the way I feel, is truth only what we believe is real

Marvel the sketches that paint the light, starlight

Take a breath before it's all erased away
