Title : Swallows Me Whole
-----------------

You say you think you can help me
Think of me as someone who bleeds
Well I never told you to love me
That's your sort of greed

I can make my own decisions
And I can do what I want to do
And I don't share my addiction
With any of you

And I'll be just fine
Out of my mind
I like it this way
I know when to pray
And I'm in control
Till' it swallows me whole

Well I know you'd like to control me
You always need to be right
'Cause I'm late once or twice
Lose a job or stay out all night

I can see high above this
The world is a boundary for you
And I know you'd like to see through it
The way that I do

And I'll be just fine
Out of my mind
I like it this way
I know when to pray
And I don't need any until I need more
I said I was sorry a hundred times before
And I'm in control
Until it swallows me whole

You say that you have to leave now
You can't stand the things that I do
And you know that I'll need this
More than I'll ever need you

And I'll be just fine
Out of my mind
I like it this way
I know when to pray
And I don't need any until I need more
And I don't need any until I need more
And I don't need any until I need more
And I'm in control

Until it swallows me whole
'Till it swallows me whole
Swallows me whole
