Case For Insanity

Smoke in the lungs
In the embers
I can't give it up
In this wildfire
Dancing free
But the heart is empty
And it bleeds

Why can't we?
Why can't we?

I know the answer
But like repetition
In the case for insanity
Waiting for a change
Over and over
For a different result
Not the calm
But a storm

Streetlights cascade
In the evening
Bottle of wine
A second round
I must comply
Wild as a child
The heart bleeds

Why can't we?
Why can't we?

I know the answer
But like repetition
In the case for insanity
Waiting for a change
Over and over
For a different result
Not the calm
But a storm

Deep in the sea
Drowning what I feel in drink
Night after night after night
The results don't change
I hurt the same

(Why can't we…)

I know the answer
But like repetition
In the case for insanity
Waiting for a change
Over and over
For a different result
Not the calm
But a storm
