Stroll to the cafe
My God how time flies
I close up my brain
And another friend dies

I feel like a mirror
Feel like nothing is mine
I could go back to crying
But now dying seems fine

So I hang from the ceiling
Or I sit on the air
Or rot in a corner
Until somebody cares

Faces at random
I quote people I knew
Id love to be like me
If I could feel like you

Here am i, more roche five than pain
Here am i, just me and my walls to blame
Here am i, I really dont feel quite sane
Here am i, still searching for my shadow in vain
Lock my door I only think in black and white
Ill even try to look ashamed

Moving out of central
Somebody knows me well
Says hell spill the whole story
He may be lying I cant tell

Meet me inside
Ill keep my head to the floor
And one hand on the handle
Of the mad/sane door

Here am i, more roche five than pain
Here am i, just me and my walls to blame
Here am i, I really dont feel quite sane
Here am i, still searching for my shadow in vain
Lock my door I only think in black and white
Ill even try to look ashamed

My shadow in vain
My shadow in vain
My shadow in vain
My shadow in vain
My shadow in vain...
