lyrics

If I lose myself try to stop me (stop me)
I’m counting like it’s sheep it won’t hurt me (hurt me)
If I get in too deep will this burn me (burn me)
Will to try be to fail?

If I find they are my lovers (lovers)
There’s just a few things to discover lover
I’d rather drink this stuff alone than have you
Feed this virgin throat

So if I see this can this really be?
If all this is just based around me
This dreadful mess branded ridiculous
weight on my chest I hope you
get what you paid for
You get what you paid for…

Freedom has lost me somewhere back home (what home?)
And what escape I had it’s gone (it’s gone now)
Damn this insanity in my blood I’ve torn this
stretched skin too many times

So if I see this can this really be?
If all this is just based around me
This dreadful mess branded ridiculous
weight on my chest I hope you
get what you paid for
You get what you paid for…

If you want this can you hear me?
I’m going too fast my dear me
If you want this can you hear me?
I’m going to fast my dear me
If you want this can you hear me?
I’m going too fast my dear me
If you want this can you hear me?
I’m going to fast...

So if I see this can this really be?
If all this is just based around me
This dreadful mess branded ridiculous
weight on my chest I hope you
get what you paid for
You get what you paid for…
