I'm only human, I've got a skeleton in me --
call me a traitor, I'm just collecting your victims.
Make me a promise here tonight: love like a tidal wave.
I think that keeping this up could be dangerous,
and I'm so sick of watching while the minutes pass as I go nowhere.
I'll stop the whole world from turning into a monster
and eating us alive, but I'm not the villain,
despite what you're always preaching.
No escape from the truth and the weight of it all,
I am caught in the web of a lie.
Don't you ever wonder how we survive?
Well, now that you're gone, the world is ours.
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way.
I'm tired of begging for the things that I want,
I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor.
The chemicals will bring you home again --
you don't have to believe me,
but don't take too long;
I hear them calling,
and they're getting stronger.
My lungs gave out as I faced the crowd,
and this is my reaction to everything I fear,
'cause I've been going crazy.
I don't want to waste another minute here.
Give me therapy; I'm a walking travesty
but I'm smiling at everything.
Therapy, you were never a friend to me
and you can choke on your misery.
But the way I see it, next time you point
a finger I might have to bend it back,
or break it off, 'cause I've tried so hard
to convince myself it's okay that I feel this way.
Fail-safe trigger, lock-down call, wipe the
dry clean-slate, quick, sound the alarm:
I'm flesh and bone, I'm a rolling stone
and the experts say I'm delirious.
This is it -- when it's done, we can say:
when it's sudden death we fight back.
You told me, "Think about it," well I did.
Now I don't want to feel a thing anymore.
Next time you point a finger,
I'll point you to the mirror.
"If I were you I'd put that away.
See you're just wasted
and thinking about the past again,
darling you'll be okay,"
If you were me you'd do the same,
'cause I can't take anymore;
I'll draw the shades and close the door.
Everything's not alright,
and I would rather...
