It's been a long, dark, lonely hall
Between the cracks I can read the scrawl
It's written down in a crooked rhyme
That sold me out before my time


You know but, since then I been back down to the edge
I can't believe the things you never said
I can't explain the words I never found
My whole world should come crashing down


You know, but you can't sell me out with everything you think about


I think back I draw a blank
You know but, there ain't no need to dig the past
You know I, I don't wanna live my life in a day
I ain't got no need for this plastic cage


'Cause you don't think about anything I think about


You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean


Now you know for sure you're alive
Because you, you watched her leave before your eyes
You know I, I'm afraid to say your name
But I ain't afraid to share this blame


Because, you can't sell me out everything you think about


You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean


It's been a long, dark, lonely hall
Between the cracks I can read the scrawl
Find a place that feels like home
You know I, I get some clue to where I'm going


You know, you don't think about anything I think about


You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean


You know what I mean, oh no
You know what I mean, oh
You know what I mean, oh no
You know what I mean
