The evenings out against the sky Half deserted streets where you and I Explore the aching corners of our minds Like patients on a table etherised The yellow smoke that falls from window panes Lingers on the pools that stand on drains There’s time to murder and create To lift and drop a question from your plate I've known the evenings, mornings, afternoons I've measured out my life with coffee spoons And all that's left is you I hear the dying voices dying fall Beneath the music heard beyond the hall I've know the eyes already known them all When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall But how should I begin to change my ways To spit out all the butt ends of my days When my weak spirit quickens to rebel I've known my heart already known it well

Changing you face, finding a place to hide Thinking your free and knowing you’re trapped inside Wondering why he won’t let you go But questions equal pain you know Your memory fades form weeks and days alone Vague pictures of those you used to know Maybe now it’s time to escape But failure now would seal your fate Building up a rapport with your captor Thinking you’re changing his mind Feeling so low as he takes you Away from your home. Ruins your life And you say that you feel so lonely Well I don’t understand you now I don’t know. Run away The patterns on the wall pass the time Holding you for ransom day and night Scattered needles glow and ease the pain But nothing now can ease your shame Building up a rapport with your captor Thinking you’re changing his mind Feeling so low as he takes you Away from your home. Ruins your life And you say that you feel so lonely Well I don’t understand you now I don’t know. Run away

Open the bottle at night. Out pours the fears of the day Sometimes the pain washes away Love makes a noise downstairs. Making you all too aware. Of the life and times you used to share. You won’t take him back but you can’t sleep It’s a promise I hope you won’t keep Just when you thought you’re okay. The life that you lead starts to change Find out he played away and life’s on the same old track You won’t take him back but you can’t sleep It’s a promise I hope you won’t keep Time is the cure and not someone else You’re hurting yourself and drinking won’t help

On you they change and set your mind on fire On you they trace a lust that’s in your eyes Time slips away and everyone you see here is afraid The same old lies that hide behind your eyes Left a broken home to break a social chain Time spent alone doesn’t ease the pain Your social disguise wears a little thin in others eyes You try to smile. Try to hide the pain If only for a while you look the other way Everybody knows, it doesn’t change your mind All out on show and pressure builds inside You come out one day and everything inside you blows away You try to smile. Try to hide the pain If only for a while you look the other way
