I keep seein' your face
When my eyes are closed.
I'm rememberin' how it used to go.
All the medicated
Nearly comatose.
A bullet out of your head
Is it on that road?

So much in your mind
When you kill more than time.
You're sinking so low thinking you will be high.
Biting your lip while you're losing your mind.
Alone. God knows

You're climbing up the walls.
You're just climbing up the walls.
You're climbing up the walls.

Now you're reaching that age
Where you should know.
How to figure it out
Out on your own.
On the far side of town
Is a room you love.
Started tearin' it down.
To get you to follow

So much in your mind
When you kill more than time.
You're sinking so low thinking you will be high.
Biting your lip while you're losing your mind.
Alone. God knows

You're climbing up the walls.
You're just climbing up the walls.
You're climbing up the walls.

The world won't rise and ease your crying.
If you do nothing
If you do nothing
The world won't try to change your mind.
If you don't change at all.

You're climbing up the walls.
You're just climbing up the walls.
You're climbing up the walls.

Drunk. He's fast asleep.
He's so tired. Makes me weep.
He stays up all night workin' on his songs.
But then I guess we all do the same thing.
He's sleepy
