Let me see through all the lights
I know I'll feel better in time
You shoulda told me a lie
I tell you why, I don't know
What was going through my head

Now things have cleared, I'm not dead
Now that I've settled in bed
You shoulda told me a lie
I tell you why, I don't know
What was going through my head

What if I walked off the line
What if I never revived
You shoulda told me a lie
I tell you why, I don't know
What was going through my head
You know it should have been red
You know I should have been lead

Down in deep inside
I am safe and now and then I want to fly
Away from everything
on my own on my way through the night

I wake up I don't know where I've been
And then I'll start over again
You shoulda told me a lie
I tell you why, I don't know
What was going through my head
I tell you why, I don't know
What was going through my head
You know it should have been red
You know I should have been lead
You know I could have been dead
