lyrics

Time crawls along
Clock's tickin' like a gong
It's drowning out the song
Of hatred
Smile
And look away
She's hissin'
And I finally listened
As my country turned to dust
Oh well

Oh well
It's not as if my input ever cracked the code
And set the inmates free
Free to gallop o'er the glistening land
Now foggy and unplanned
Oh, how can we withstand?

Hide and seek
To be free
Hide and seek
Endlessly

Go
Tears are slipping
And I'm tripping
Almost clipping through the wall
To leave your wretched drawl
Now I'm breathing
Feel my nostrils grieving
And the sky is cleaving innocence
Oh well

Oh well
It's just another day
I'm coming of age
And this is just a test
Can you do it?
Push all of the buttons
Save all of the shut-ins
We depend on you

Hide and seek
To be free
Hide and seek
Endlessly

Yes, I know that
They will come for me
Just as they came for you
But all I feel is blue, oh

Fingers wrapping tight
Turning off all the lights
Empty-throated hero
Good-for-nothing zero

Yes, I know that
They will come for me
Just as they came for you
But all I feel is blue, oh

Fingers wrapping tight
Turning off all the lights
Empty-throated hero
Good-for-nothing zero
