Unravel me, a distant cord
On the outside is forgotten
A constant need to get along
And the animal awakens
And all I feel is black and white

The road is long
The memory slides
To the whole of my undoing
Put aside, I put away
I push it back to get through each day

And all I feel is black and white
And I'm wound up small and tight
And I don't know who I am

Everybody loves you when you're easy
Everybody hates when you're a bore
Everyone is waiting for your entrance
So don't disappoint them

Unravel me, untie this chord
The very center of our union
Is caving in, I can't endure
I am the archive of our failure

And all I feel is black and white
And I'm wound up
Small and tight
And I don't know who I am

Everybody loves you when you're easy
Everybody hates when you're a bore
Everyone is waiting for your entrance
So don't disappoint them

Everybody loves you when you're easy
So don't disappoint them
Don't disappoint them
Don't disappoint them
Don't disappoint them
...
