Here I am again up at some strange hour Waiting for the time to slowly be devoured Off in the distance there’s some sort of resistance And the clouds are on their way Beyond comprehension another lost invention All we really want is to get your attention Even though we seem aware don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care Moving right along another day is gone Nothing means anything when everything is wrong The cure for love is to kill the heart The solution for the end is to find the start Traded in your dreams for unanswered prayers All we do is complain about life isn’t fair Even though we seem aware don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care Even though we seem aware don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care Going through the motions Why are we always so foolish that we don’t believe? The truth when it’s right in front of our eyes Could it be that just maybe we are Desensitized Even though we seem aware don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care Even though we seem aware don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care Beyond comprehension another lost invention All we really want is to get your Attention

I don’t believe you but I love you anyway I no longer trust anything you say No need to speak I can see it in your eye All you have for me is a head full of lies Don’t do this to me no not now Finally eventually I figured out how This broken world keeps on turning around And some how all the people keep they’re feet on the ground Lies Lies Lies I don’t believe you but I love you anyway I’ve been lost in the desert out here in Bombay We won’t fall back and we won’t fall down We’ll just have to wait until we hit the ground Everybody wants what they didn’t earn Evolution’s taking it’s final last turn And the problem is we will never learn We’ll cut ourselves if we don’t burn Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies I don’t believe you but I love you anyway The magic’s inside save it for another day Move on move up move out things have changed and I’m having my doubts I try not to try anymore You’re always on track and you’re keeping score I told you once twice and three times before is it me you love or is it the war Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies I don’t believe you but I love you anyway I no longer trust anything you say No need to speak I can see it in your eye All you have for me is a head full of lies Don’t do this to me no not now Finally eventually I figured out how This broken world keeps on turning around And some how all the people keep they’re feet on the ground Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies

What would you say if you didn’t have voice Would you open your eyes if you didn’t have a choice And what would you do if you life was a dream Nothing is real or what it seems oh I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know And what would become of if there wasn’t a sky Just a black hole with emptiness and lies And what would you run from if there’s nothing to fear Would you turn around and stay would you disappear And what would you do if the ocean was gone Everything is OK everything is all wrong I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know What would you feel if nothing could be felt Would you want to be alive and deal with what you’ve been dealt I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know What would you say if you didn’t have voice Would you open your eyes if you didn’t have a choice What would you do if you life was a dream Nothing is real or what it seems oh I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know

If there ever was another way a language I could speak or something I could say An open door a place in time save your thoughts ah never mind No one cares any more Hurry it up move it along If it’s fact I’m certain it’s wrong I’m moving away there’s no place to go You can’t get away from the world From the world you know What you thought you thought you thought you had Nothing left now only a fading fad Was that someone that I use to know Losing there head to the television show People these days they have no mind Everything revolves around a lack of time Hurry it up move it along If it’s fact I’m certain it’s wrong I’m moving away there’s no place to go You can’t get away from the world From the world you know Born to serve and breed disease it’s hard anymore to have sympathy I had dreams to rescue and save but I’m lost in the shuffle I became I became a slave Hurry it up move it along If it’s fact I’m certain it’s wrong I’m moving away there’s no place to go You can’t get away from the world From the world you know If there ever was another way a language I could speak or something I could say An open door a place in time save you thoughts oh never mind

Why is it so hard when your not around Why is it so hard when your not around I looked up to the sky I looked under the ground I looked every where, No where to be found Why is it so hard when you not around Every day is a new day this is true What difference does it make if it’s with out you Time is so bizarre if you leave stay fail or go far Better or worse it’s hard to say Things can change and rearrange Become different than they were Sometimes there good sometimes they ain’t Sometimes there devils and others are saints And it doesn’t really matter to me I know what the future holds Every day is a new day this is true What difference does it make if it’s with out you Oh and the future turns into the past And the present moments never last I use to care and question everything Now all I want is to sleep and dream Dream dream dream Every day is a new day this is true What difference does it make if it’s with out you And I still ask my self Why is it so hard when you not around Why is it so hard when you your not around I looked up to the sky I looked under the ground I looked every where no where to be found Why is it so hard when your not around When your not around

I woke up in the afternoon dazed deranged and confused I came to the conclusion I will draw don’t bother me with nothings your fault Cellophane girl friend somehow you always pretend You act as if nothing is wrong and behind my back you’re moving on You make me out to be such fool and you’re the one who breaks all the rules I wish you would leave me alone I know he doesn’t know were on the phone If I don’t pick up you will leave me one, two & three Messages I don’t want to hear a scared little girl in fear If it hurts you know that true and somewhere I know that you do I wish you would leave me alone I know he doesn’t know were on the phone I wish you would leave me alone I know he doesn’t know were on the phone God damn it you just don’t understand you got yourself another man Feelings that no one should feel dreams that are way to real No matter what you think I should see baby I will never believe You were made for me you were made for me you were made for me You were made for me Ah yeah I woke up in the afternoon dazed, deranged, and confused The telephone finally stops peace and quite as the stomach drops How on earth could this be true next to me in bed I found you And I wish you would leave me alone, I know he doesn’t know your in my home And I wish you would just leave me alone

Woke up late for work today Jumped out of bed and I called on the phone he said Don’t worry this time I called Jon to fill your shoes hit snooze, Go back to bed forget about it for today take some time Get some rest get what ever it is off your chest Oh thank you I really need a day off Alright Hypochondria got me so far down so far so far so far down I can’t get out from under my own frown I hung up the phone and looked at the bed nobody cares if I sleep instead I don’t feel as if I have the time to many other things on my mind Oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh Ah Ah Ah Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Hypochondria got me so far down so far so far so far down I can’t get out from under my own frown 10 miles out from the nearest town I’m looking searching but what have I found I’m lost upstairs no one cares It makes me sad lonely and mad Oh no yes OK I guess it’s so hard to say And there ain’t no one to blame for this ridiculous game Except for myself except for myself except for myself Hypochondria got me so far down so far so far so far down I can’t get out from under my own frown Oh my god Hypochondria got me so far down, so far, so far, so far down So far so far so far down so far so far so far so far down
