lyrics

I can still remember that small room where this began
When I woke up I barely knew my name
You told me of some protocols for all those tests you ran
You almost seemed to treat it like some game

My first mistake was being so naive
I guess that I just wanted to believe that this would all be over soon
And you said there'd be cake...

But I've seen the writing on the wall
And I'm not gonna fall for all your
- So-called "enhancing" of the truth

And when these tests are finally through
I'll give a test to you because
I have seen the writing on the wall

You might've tried to hide it, but the turrets made it clear
You really didn't want me to survive
I dodged a couple bullets there, but nothing's quite like fear
To make a person GLaD they're Still Alive

But then you made me burn my only friend
I knew right there that this could only end with watching you go down in flames
And then I'd have my cake...

Cause I've seen the writing on the wall
And I'm not gonna fall for all your
- So-called "enhancing" of the truth

And when these tests are finally through
I'll give a test to you because
I have seen the writing on the wall

You thought that you could kill me on that final burning floor
But I escaped, and now the fun begins
I'm sick of all those buttons, and those stupid sliding doors
I never want to see a box again

It seems like I've been in this place for days
Just wandering this stupid endless maze, and when I find you, you will die
Cause you said there'd be cake --
But it's a lie
