Think you can tell me What to think Think that you convince me No way no way Think that I believe you what you spin think you know how to no way no way you may think that i just swallow everything whole and i won't deny you really seem like your in control think you can tell me how to feel think you control me no way no way think that i will go hide in fear won't use my own mind no way no way your delectable lies to paint the sky all blue and bright the things that you devise to keep me all scared at night Think you can tell me What to think Think that you convince me No way no way Think that I believe you what you spin think you know how to no way no way

A curious eye roaming, too timid to care Too rehearsed in their way to see what we share And time ticks by, ever so slowly Don't watch the clock coz it don't really see My hands are itchin, don't know what quite to do Idea is slipping, I got something to prove Feet a keep pacin', can't keep control My mind is racing, racing out the back doot T-H-I-N-G-S Is what lands us in this fine mess But I must confess that I too suffer from this excess T-H-I-N-G-S Is what lands us in this fine mess But I must confess that I too suffer from this obsession It won't break me down A smile is a crown It won't break me down A smile is a crown For too long, the obvious has been ignored And now it seems we're run by A bunch of corporate whores We hold on to our ignorance like a grand old trophy Now its time, now its time, to stop speaking so softly T-H-I-N-G-S Is what lands us in this fine mess But I must confess that I too suffer from this excess T-H-I-N-G-S Is what lands us in this fine mess But I must confess that I too suffer from this obsession It won't break me down A smile is a crown It won't break me down A smile is a crown

The meter is ticking from when I awake I'm rushing to get there, I'm already late They're counting, they're waiting They're watching their backs, They're adding the numbers of the hidden tax Coz I can't believe how I'm starting to feel Like I'm painted to thin and I've started to peel Is it all in my head coz I'm stuck in routine And I can't get out now my mind's a machine Hey Hey Hey You want to play a stupid game Want to be different not the same Hey hey hey You wanna play a stupid game So I'm gonna cut out and get away They'll never let you fade into dark They'll haunt you, and watch you and squash out your spark Just waiting til the moment that you come undone You haven't surrendered but they've still won Coz I can't believe how I'm starting to feel Like I'm painted to thin and I've started to peel Is it all in my head coz I'm stuck in routine And I can't get out now my mind's a machine Hey Hey Hey You want to play a stupid game Want to be different not the same Hey hey hey You wanna play a stupid game So I'm gonna cut out and get away I feel my defiance it's rising inside They want my compliance but I will not hide It's not in my nature to work at this grind To just be a vicitm and then follow blind Coz I can't believe how I'm starting to feel Like I'm painted to thin and I've started to peel Is it all in my head coz I'm stuck in routine And I can't get out now my mind's a machine Hey Hey Hey You want to play a stupid game Want to be different not the same Hey hey hey You wanna play a stupid game So I'm gonna cut out and get away

Why did i reach for you again? When i know you're not my friend When it's all just pretend but i'll love ya till the end you have climbed into my veins the darkness swims around, around, around You are there when i walk away There nothing to say Silent devil sits on shoulder Freezing my heart colder You have reached inside my mind it tries to fly, fly, fly, You chase me in circles dusk till dawn, sunset till morn Can't think, can't breathe Can't sleep, can't leave Can't run, can't stop I will never give up Drifting off to sleep I am in too deep I have fallen in your trap Queue bleeding hearts to weep You command me Please unhand me now, now, now Can't think, can't breathe Can't sleep, can't leave Can't run, can't stop I will never give up

You don't know me but that's fine And I don't know you but I don't mind You say come here take my hand Let's go from this place Coz we can We're Free Free Yeah You surprise me with your smile I'll stay with you for awhile There's no boundaries no end in sight We can stay here til morning light We're Free Free Yeah
