Lyrics


I am nothing but a puppet on a string
and you rule everything
As I make my way out of the door
I do not notice the steep stairs I once climbed
tripping down now seems so pointless

Hopeless I am, naïve and all too kind
Hope to forget and get you off my mind
Be in the flock and hold on, family ties
Being the rock to skip on your black eyes

All that follows is another failure
'nother chance to be blue eyed blind
All that follows is another failure
yet a symptom of my one track mind

And when everything is a disaster
track the current and go back to square
one with all the others that go faster
then to lose in races everywhere

All that follows is another failure
'nother chance to be caught hot red
All that follows is another failure
the hopefulness of my one track fed

And when everything is a disaster
track the current and go back to square
one with all the others that go faster
then to fail at all that follows here

Hopeless I am, naïve and all too kind
Hope to forget and get you off my mind
Be in the flock and hold on, family ties
Being the rock to skip on your black eyes

(guitar riff)

I am nothing but the means to an end song
and they all sing along
As we make our way through this cruel world
We do not notice the happiness we all have
being down seems so pointless

All that follows ...

(guitar solo)

Lengthy new section, have you come too soon?
Darker are the times of bother
How can I forget you?
(you) were like no other

Otherwise I would be less wise
Anyway I'm stronger now
Now to continue onwards
I don't know (how)

How to grow up faster and
not be ten
I have seen through windows to the past
could there be
windows like them
the other way?

All that follows ...

All that follows ...

Hopeless I am, naïve and all too kind
