The shadows give away
Someone outside the door
Won't let 'em in

Life-damaged gears to grind
A run down broke machine
That steals your peace of mind
Before you know it's gone
Lay down, wait

Silence burning, hold your tongue
Keep a separate soul they'd know

Hiding in the dark that's under
Boiling to the surface
Stumble, fall

A looking in view too long on the outside
Desperate plans make sense to the lowlife
Lie

A looking in view too long on the outside
Desperate plans make sense to the lowlife
Lie

[Savagely wicked restart]

These things I hate in you
Also reflect it seems
Distortion laced with spite
Takes you out of me
Late now, laid

Hiding in the darkness under
Boiling to the surface
Somethin' crawling on your skin
Discomfort, makes you break and run
Stumble, fall

A looking in view too long on the outside
Desperate plans make sense to the lowlife
Lie

A looking in view too long on the outside
Desperate plans make sense to the lowlife
Lie

It's why you never tell me heaven's on your mind
It's why you never tell me heaven's on your mind

That's why you'll never tell me heaven's on your mind
That's why you'll never tell me heaven's on your mind

A looking in view too long on the outside
Desperate plans make sense to the lowlife
Lie

A looking in view too long on the outside
Desperate plans make sense to the lowlife
Lie

It's why you never tell me heaven's on your mind
