You don't know the effect you make
The things you say leave me dead
I don't know what I'm trying to do today
I think something broke inside my head

They equip you with sanity
so you can do all kinds of things
Some arguments bring clarity
in a voice with which you cannot sing

It's okay if you just laugh
my other choices aren't that good
To watch you break from your state of ice
and burn just like wood

So turn off the light and close the door,
this is the nightmare we were brought to
where everything is provided for
but some way out to get to you
