do (this) equation + for me = (because) you always [do what is in the {brackets} first] but it's much too confusing.

so you want to play this game?
then don't forget i am only here a short time
and you could lose me forever
(time is running out, going fast, it does not trip)
broken lighthouse flashing lights that maybe aren't meant
but i am a ship- a constant wandering ship
and if that lighthouse is flashing maybe-aren't-meant then i know i'll crash
crash into you maybe and then, oh god, he knows, that i will be stranded there
stranded till someone else comes along and saves me
so you want to play this game?
then don't forget that what you think is obvious is subtle
and what you don't think of i think the world of.
and so i am holding back, not assuming, because oh god, he knows that i do too much of that
okay. so you want to play this game.
i'm all for it. ready, set, go:
collapse my spirit offend my heart give my soul another wrinkle

so you want to take my breath?
so you want to make my eyelashes fall out to the ground step on them i am no longer shielded from the dust
make me beg and cry and you don't even know it, know it, you don't
no one ever does so here we go
do you want to play this game? give me heartache break my bones and use them to mark my grave
flash of lightning is all i saw thunder should not be too far behind but i haven't heard it yet
but it is pouring down rain raising my heart into my eyes
(and well, i try to be cautious- unassuming;
but every time i trip. i forget it and say things and i am so assuming)
so you want to play this game?
pick your player lay out the board count the fake money roll the dice
collapse my spirit offend my heart
{give my soul another wrinkle}
