Lyrics

When I come in and I'm tired
And I've forgotten myself
It's like I'm still wired
To the outside

And I put up walls a little each day
To give myself space
When everyday I'm losing sense
And I'm losing my taste

THEN YOU CHANGE ALL THAT
JUST BY WALKING IN
YOU TAKE THE KNIVES OUT OF MY BACK
AND PEEL AWAY MY OLD SKIN

When I come in from a long day
And the world won't stop
And it won't stop spinning
Til I get off

Try to find something
To hold myself up
When in everyway I'm losing strength
A little each day

THEN YOU CHANGE ALL THAT
JUST BY WALKING IN
YOU TAKE THE KNIVES OUT OF MY BACK
PEEL AWAY MY OLD SKIN

THEN YOU CHANGE ALL THAT
JUST BY WALKING IN

When it gets dark at four
And the day gives up
And feels like I've been dragged thru a graveyard

And I'm stuck here in this tiny box
With the lid nailed on
When everyday disappears
But they all feel long

THEN YOU CHANGE ALL THAT
JUST BY WALKING IN
YOU TAKE THE KNIVES OUT OF MY BACK
PEEL AWAY MY OLD SKIN

THEN YOU CHANGE ALL THAT
JUST BY WALKING IN
