Timber shakes these trail
They all derail,
Phony false and frail
An empty ocean
Lost our way with no direction home
Golden needles names we take in vain
Find it harder to remain
Nothin's sacred, waitin' on that explanation

Right before my eyes
I saw the whole world lose control
The whole world lost control
Before my eyes
Uh-huh

I fell through the floor
I couldn't take it anymore
I can't take this anymore
It breaks my mind
Uh-huh

Hold her dirty hands over the flames
Gettin' pleasure from the pain
Softly screamin' that this girl that you raise has spoken
Golden needles names we take it vain
Find it harder to remain
Nothin's sacred, still waitin' on that explanation

Right before my eyes
I saw the whole world lose control
The whole world lost control
Before my eyes
Uh-huh

I fell through the floor
I couldn't take it anymore
I can't take this anymore
It breaks my mind
Uh-huh

Everything I thought I knew fell to the side
Time went on and on
Couldn't see past my own eyes
Past my eyes, past my eyes, past my eyes

Right before my eyes
I saw the whole world lose control
The whole world lost control
Before my eyes
Uh-huh

I fell through the floor
I couldn't take it anymore
I can't take this anymore
It breaks my mind
Uh-huh
