lyrics

Staring calmly into oblivion
Underneath the floors we’ve been living on
Try to convince you of the truth I’ll unveil
Just kick off your boots let me tell you this tale

Though you call it inhumanity
I’ll convince you of my sanity
Watch my convictions slowly fall apart
I’ll give it all away to stop the beating of his heart

I’m falling through
Take me away, take me away
The pounding of a drum
In my ears
Can you hear it
Can you hear it
It’s the spirit
It’s the spirit
Even this one good thing in my life turned bad
And though I speak with reason everybody thinks I’m mad

Just an eye it sits and stares at me
I wonder just how much an eye can see
Underneath the facade of serenity
Can it see my fingers tremble when I turn the key

Like the lantern illuminate my soul
Everything must stay under my control
Watch my convictions slowly fall apart
I’ll give it all away to stop the beating of his heart

I’m falling through
Take me away, take me away
The pounding of a drum
In my ears
Can you hear it
Can you hear it
It’s the spirit
It’s the spirit
Even this one good thing in my life turned bad
And though I speak with reason everybody thinks I’m mad

Try to believe it’s not as bad it seems
But my mind can’t erase the sound of the screams
My convictions slowly fall apart
I’ll give it all away to stop the beating of my heart

I’m falling through
Take me away, take me away
The pounding of a drum
In my ears
Can you hear it
Can you hear it
It’s the spirit
It’s the spirit
Even this one good thing in my life turned bad
And though I speak with reason everybody thinks I’m mad
