When you can't understand

Language or reality

This isn't what you had planned

You think you'll step down

(guitar 2 comes in)

And crisis everywhere

You can't find a way back

You shake because you are scared

But there's no end to it

All

So tell me how much more

Do you think you can take?

GUITAR BREAK

When you're fatally hurt

By your expectations

You collapse in the dirt

And pray for emptiness

A clinical regime

That you need to get by

It makes everyday seem

Like an end to it

All

So tell me how much more

Do you think you can take?

(x a few, speeds up with shouting)

VERSE RIFF WITH GUITAR BREAK UNDERNEATH

Oh what is it you need

To feel strong?

And how much more?

How much more?

So tell me how much more

Do you think you can take?

(x a few, full speed to begin with, carries on to end)
