Lyrics

You never took the time
Trace the jagged line
Down the crooked trail we traveled on
It’s written on your face
Fallen out of grace
You haven’t got a clue where I’m coming from
You must be the only one

Oh no
You think you’ve got me in your pocket
You think you’ve got me where you want me
Oh can’t you see
You cry and you can mock it
But you don’t own me
Anymore

Everything is changed
Shifted overnight
You’re sleeping on the wreckage of what we’ve done
The truth is in your head
Matters what you said
The strangest conversation is rolling on
Knowing you had made me strong

Oh don’t you know
You think you’ve got me in your pocket
I’m not the complicated man I used to be
So plug the light into the socket
So you can see
Oh yeh

I’m still round but I’m gone
Got to admit it was wrong
You like a total eclipse of the sun
So turn the light on
You’re suffocating me

You’re suffocating
You’re suffocating me

It’s just another test
To see if I’m the best
Of all the lonely creatures that look like you
I’m one of the chosen few

Now that I know where through
You think you’ve got me in your pocket
You think you’ve got me where you want me
But can’t you see
Now I’m flying like a rocket
Over the see
You’re suffocating me

You’re suffocating me
You’re suffocating
You’re suffocating me

Oooooh
Don’t you know
You’re suffocating me
