Tell me: have you worn yourself out yet
from climbing out, and falling back?
You try to tell me that I'm cruel,
as if I'm the one controlling you.

So peel yourself from me,
my second skin.
And fill your lungs again,
and learn to swim.
You've got envy now, but envy's not
your seventh sin.
Where's your imagination?
How long 'til you begin?

I know you've seen this all before.
So why can't you see it anymore?
What's it like to drown in your own mind?
How long's it gonna take until you find out

When you lock your lips to mine in search of
a second wind,
you'll only find the strength
to try again.
You were flailing all around yourself.
You couldn't see.
Grasping at everything,
all you found was me.
Just me.
