------- I'm tired of the same old, same old thing I'm wired different, got to remove this string Coz I gotta get out, and I gotta move on It gets me down, down, down, down, down Night or day With a handshake I'd make all this go away Night or day Ooh, oh, something's gotta give It keeps on running, keeps running, running circles on me And now it's time to run out I'm trying not to lose my, lose my grip I'm lying if I tell you my day went quick Coz I gotta let go, and I gotta get out It gets me down, down, down, down, down Night or day With a handshake I'd make all this go away Night or day Ooh, oh, something's gotta give It keeps on running, keeps running, running circles on me And now it's time to run out It's the way the situation reads It's the way the conversation turns to stone It's the way the company I keep Gets me dancing between violent streaks as sharp as a triangle Ooh, oh, something's gotta give
2.
------- Can you hear me? Draw a line in the water Or keep in your head in the clouds You can try to look away, don't matter You'll still feel your heart racing Can you hear me thinking out loud? You're an echo of someone I knew But I'm back on the highway soon When I try to look away, I hear you Every single thought racing I can hear you thinking out loud Make a move and make it right Or forever wonder what could be Can you hear me thinking out loud? I can hear you thinking out loud
3.
------- I think I'm burning But she gets cold when it gets hot You're overturning Everything I say, everything I've got I feel it coming with the shake of a wrist She's a summertime girl with a wintertime kiss I think I'm burning But I get this feeling that you're not And as I'm learning You count me down and take your shot Did you know you hurt somebody? So what, so what Did you hurt them badly? I know that Did you know you hurt somebody? So what, so what You seem to do this glady, oh I feel it coming with the shake of a wrist She's a summertime girl with a wintertime kiss
4.
------- It's all just propaganda, this thing about you and I I must have skipped the stanza where we don't see eye to eye And so I'm home alone and I feel you creeping in Got a shadow outside my window, I need to run I called 911 and they just laughed at me They told me that this wasn't an emergency This is not the way that it's supposed to be My life should not resemble that of mystery And so I'm running away, away And so I'm running away, from you I see you coming, butterfly I see you coming, not tonight We should've just talked about it, but now I've got to run and hide Kiss and tell with a lonely phantom, I'm haunted deep inside No plot, just skin and tension - you aim to hypnotize The thing you failed to mention, I have to improvise I called 911 and they just laughed at me They told me that this wasn't an emergency This is not the way that it's supposed to be My life should not resemble that of mystery And so I'm running away, away And so I'm running away And so I'm running away, away And so I'm running away, from you I see you coming, butterfly I see you coming, not tonight

------- double check, she's a mess, it's the way she's treated loveless wreck, house arrest, bruising from the beating on the chest, or the neck, when the room gets heated not a drill, just a test, where she's always graded so she saved up money in a box under the mattress if she was gonna do it she was gonna make sure it happened and we all stood by on the other side while she indulged her pride she sleeps alone tonight again and we all stood by with a blinded eye we saw her take his life we let her claim her own again quiet man, minivan, perfect model neighbor people talk, gossip shock, but they don’t believe her all the press, mourning dress, photo in the paper wedded bliss, murderess, but she’s sleeping better she tried to find a way to get herself back on the level she never found a god but she put a ring on the devil he's below and she's inside without an alibi no way to live this life two wrongs don't make a right, they said and nobody wonders why all her tears run dry she used to be outside and now she waits until the end 25 to life but she's always been a captive he made her feel alone and he made her feel unattractive now her mother sits at home and thinks about her time between the truth and lies that night the world around them died when she visits once a week she sees a fading light she lost a losing fight and now she sleeps alone again - tonight
