Chorus

And my compassion? Now it's flickering, flickering,

Slipping out of my fingers like a ring, like a ring,

That never even fit.

Well, I just don't get it.

Verse 1

My smile is still shining too bright.

But I'm plunging deeper into the night.

A part of me is growing dark.

Everything has a question mark.

Chorus

And my compassion? Now it's flickering, flickering,

Slipping out of my fingers like a ring, like a ring,

That never even fit.

Well, I just don't get it.

Verse 2

How did I get this way? Don't ask.

Now I see every face wearing a mask,

And every heart on a mission,

Agenda I can't envision.

Chorus

And my compassion? Now it's flickering, flickering,

Slipping out of my fingers like a ring, like a ring,

That never even fit.

Well, I just don't get it.

Bridge

Now I'm cynical,

Cold and clinical.

The girl in the mirror? I'm not her anymore.

The warmth inside me walked out the door.

Chorus

And my compassion? Now it's flickering, flickering,

Slipping out of my fingers like a ring, like a ring,

That never even fit.

Well, I just don't get it.

Outro

Now I'm cynical,

Cold and clinical.

Lost faith in the world and its people.

It's flickering, the way I used to feel,

Slipping out of my fingers like a ring, like a ring,

It's flickering, flickering,

It's flickering, flickering.
