lyrics

How could you
Draw me out like I'm some cheap cartoon
Scripting everything I do
I can't choose
The words I say the ways I feel and move
And I need to be cut loose

But I can't seem to find the state of mind
To get me out of this constant grind

How could you
Send me straight down the flume
Drowning within your fumes
And how could I
Fall for this enterprise
When all they feed me is lies

How could you
Be puppeteering me to go insane,
My own thoughts do not feel safe
And I must lose
The things holding me back my ball and chain
To make my own escape

But I can't seem to find the state of mind
To get me out of this constant grind

How could you
Send me straight down the flume
Drowning within your fumes
And how could I
Fall for this enterprise
When all they feed me is lies

And I will break this
Curse restraining
So let me feel alive

In this state
In this state
In this state
In this state

How could you
Send me straight down the flume
Drowning within your fumes
And how could I
Fall for this enterprise
When all they feed me is lies

How could you
Send me straight down the flume
Drowning within your fumes
And how could I
Fall for this enterprise
When all they feed me is lies
