I remember the callousness

A world of concrete, how could you want more?

A touch of terror as the void draws near

And you see it is yourself you abhor

CHORUS

And this is why

Your words of kindness

Mean nothing

I've never been so afraid to dream

Some burning city, and a woman's cry

Hang a sign around my broken neck

And yet I swear I never told a lie

CHORUS

CUTS DOWN TO DRUMS AND CHOPPING, IRREGULAR, DISTORTED GUITAR

It's only now that I recognise

A passing chance in a new wasteland

I grasp at straws, all that they offer me

I don't know how to make you understand

GUITAR BUILDS BACK IN FOR

CHORUS
