Well I woke up this morning, gray dawn
With a prayer on my breath
I lost something precious, God'll save me
From losing myself

I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong

Now I met the queen and I understand
Why she closed the door
I'm not making excuses I've been there a few times
And I was, I was knocking on the door

I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong, wrong wrong

See there's a man, he lived in a house
Had a family of five
Well he blew up the windows and the doors
He said "I just couldn't, couldn't survive"

Well we all've been removed in one way or another
We don't know our families, we don't need our brothers
We're pushing the needle too far
Pushing the needle too far

Well if you wake up in the morning, gray dawn
There's a prayer on your breath
Maybe you've lost something precious and God'll save you
But don't lose yourself

I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong

There's queen who closed the door
The family that lies
People who turn, the cat that has died
A boy that od's, a girl with a gun
The world on its knees and a band on the run

There's queen who closed the door
The family that lies
People who turn, the cat that has died
A boy that od's, a girl with a gun
The world on its knees and a band on the run

There's queen who closed the door
The family that lies
People who turn, the cat that has died
A boy that od's, a girl with a gun
The world on its knees and a band on the run

You'd help me more
By not giving in
I said you'd help me more
By not giving in
I said I

I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong
We're pushing the needle too far
