Do You Understand?
Looking in the looking glass
is that a person there?
his face is drawn his eyes are downcast
in the distant past
is there a lesson there?
the lesson is it ain't gonna last
If I had my day
I'd burn down the factories
that sicken me and make the weather gray
if I had my way
I'd tear down the memories
I'm chicken and I wanna run away
Hey there do you understand
why I hold a dagger in my hand?
hey there do you understand
why I hold a trigger in my hand?
Upon distant sands
the waves fall heavily
feels heavy like my head in my hands
what I don't understand
you keep calling back on me
you kick me out yet you keep me in demand
The other day you looked the other way
hey, hey I need to get away
the other day you looked the other way
hey hey you tried to get away
