As the walls are closing in and the colors fade to black
As my eyes are falling fast and deep into me
And I follow the tracks that lead me down
I never follow what's right and they wonder sometimes
When they see all the sadness and pain, the truth begins to light

'Cause I can't see no reason what is blind cannot see
'Cause I want what is pleasin', all I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb

As the walls are closing in and the colors fade to black
As the night is falling fast and deep into the sea
And in the darkness all that I can see, the frightened and the weak
Are forced to cling to mistakes they know nothing of
At mercy are the meek

'Cause I can't see no reason what is blind cannot see
'Cause I want what is pleasin', all I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb

But for time being you're able to hold that
