Picture my reaction You’re up dressed to the nines And glowing like a blowtorch Sugar to the bloodstream Racing through my veins Until I am lightheaded Picture my reaction I’m out of my skull With the raise of an eyebrow Pull me to the shadows And quicken my pulse Until I feel quite dizzy Picture my reaction I’m binging on the buzz I feel when I am with you Brush a trailing finger Up and down my spine Until I am immobile

Look at the effort we wasted Just to slink back to the start The moment our toes crossed the finish line It all fell apart Look at how blasé we become Every time we miss the bottom rung The parts are always greater than the sum On the downside On the downside Look at the mess we created With only a mop and a broom There’s ample time for catastrophe Just give us room Look at how blasé we become Every time we miss the bottom rung The parts are always greater than the sum On the downside On the downside Why does it always come to ruin? (I don't know) Why does it always fall apart? (I don't know) Will we ever get it right? (I don't know) Certainly not today But someday we just might Look at how blasé we become Every time we miss the bottom rung The parts are always greater than the sum On the downside On the downside On the downside On the downside

Too much earnest conversation Ruins a casual understanding If I could erase the past I wouldn’t be over demanding (Ba ba) If I was nothing when I was with you (Ba ba) I'm even less than that right now (Ba ba) If I was nothing when I was with you (Ba ba-ah-ah) I'm even less than that right now Too many unrequited feelings Can chip away at patience If I had another chance I’d try to match your cadence (Ba ba) If I was nothing when I was with you (Ba ba) I'm even less than that right now (Ba ba) If I was nothing when I was with you (Ba ba-ah-ah) I'm even less than that right Now Come see the empty man Laid out for viewing: The contents of his heart Now Come see the empty man Laid out wide open He’s even less than at the start Even less, even less, even less now Even less, even less, even less now

Don’t talk to me about happenstance Don’t blame it on the adrenaline You say “How could I be happy Looking over my shoulder?” And it kills me You never worry About the lions You never worry About the lions Don’t bother to deny it all Don’t bore me with false modesty You say “How could I fall asleep at night Never knowing ecstasy?” Don’t say it’s easy You never worry About the lions You never worry About the lions Does it come at birth? No one could be so bold To always know one’s worth And never need be told You never worry About the lions You never worry About the lions You never worry About the lions You never worry About the lions

Feeling faint From the lack of Oxygen Lungs collapse No matter how hard I try I can't breathe And your rules Are pushpins In my spine Fixing me in place They keep me in line You know I can’t move Now So what are you scared of? Feeling flush With the rising Mercury Pressure builds No matter how hard I squirm I can't breathe And your rules Are pushpins In my spine Fixing me in place They keep me in line You know I can’t move Now So what are you scared of? I can't breathe And your rules Are pushpins In my spine Fixing me in place They keep me in line You know I can’t move Now So what are you scared of? And your rules Are pushpins In my spine Fixing me in place They keep me in line You know I can’t move Now So what are you scared of?
