You're sadly mistaken
So don't follow me
Don't follow me there

Lights now dimming over our heads
Witness their flickering glow
All I own, all I possess with me
Is their haunting glow

A witness in this critical shadow
The moon is laughing at me
And all I keep close is the puppetry
That hurts me so
It hurts me so

Chorus

Surrounded by this glow
I feel it hurt me so
I just want to get away from this painful place
Just leave me behind and maybe we'll see
Some kind of safety
For everyone, but me.

Alone inside this house
I feel it breaking down
Walls now closing in the broken rafters
The splinters in the light
They strike clear through the night
And no one to join me, to keep me together

And blank me out.
Blank me out!

Chorus

Surrounded by this glow
I feel it hurt me so
I just want to get away from this painful place
Just leave me behind and maybe we'll see
Some kind of safety
For everyone, but me.

Everyone, but me, will be alright.
Everyone but me, will make it through this night.
All alone with the strings constricting me.
The nail pierces, only the one they need.

And that is me.
And that person is me.
And that person is me!
Just get away from me!
