Verse 1

Blotting paper taped to my tongue.

A thousand sweet angels had sung.

Your knife had morphed into halo.

And darkness had begun to glow.

Vivid voices seen through my ears

Had punctuated my sweet fears.

Colors had exploded into

Music encompassing me and you.

And the song went,

Chorus

This is the Universe speaking,

This is what you have been seeking.

This is The One.

Don't try to run.

This is the Universe speaking,

This is the locked door now creaking.

This is The One.

Put down your gun.

And dive in heart - first too deep.

(You can't sleep stuck in this trip).

Verse 2

Blotting paper taped to my tongue.

Your cold breath had filled up my lungs.

I had seen myself through your eyes,

Mesmerizing, I had surmised.

Fractals spinning under my skin

Had started a ceaseless scratching.

Panic had been transformed into

Little child playing peek-a-boo.

And her words said,

Chorus

This is the Universe speaking,

This is what you have been seeking.

This is The One.

Don't try to run.

This is the Universe speaking,

This is the locked door now creaking.

This is The One.

Put down your gun.

And dive in heart - first too deep.

(You can't sleep stuck in this trip).

Bridge

And I felt so out of control

As I stared right at my soul.

And I felt so out of touch

With things that once meant so much.

And I felt so good.

(Is this destitute?)

And I felt so good.

(Take my servitude.)

And I felt so good

When I heard the six walls closing

In on me so charmingly sing,

This is the Universe spea-keeeeng. (Transistor distortion)

(Static)

(Silence)

And then my eyes opened

To the real old world.

And when I killed the pain

I was a new girl.

Chorus

This is the survivor speaking,

This is the voice that was squeaking.

This is The Flame.

That burnt your name.

This is the survivor speaking,

This is the locked door now creaking.

This is The Flame.

That can't be shamed.

And now it won't hurt so deep.

(I just woke up from this trip).

Outro

And now it won't hurt so deep.

(I just woke up from this trip).

And now it won't hurt so deep.

(I just woke up from this trip).

And I feel so good.

(Is this gratitude?)

And I feel so good.

(Take my servitude.)

And I feel so good,

Then I hear the six walls closing

In on me so charmingly sing,

This is the Universe speaking-

(Spoken) Just shut up.
