There are two of us talking in circles
And one of us who wants to leave
In a world created for only us
An empty cage that has no key
Don't you know we're working with flesh and blood
Carving out of jealousy
Crawling into each other it's smothering
Every little part of me

What kind of love is this that keeps me
Hanging on
Despite everything it's doing to me
What is this love that keeps me coming
Back for more
When it will only end in misery

I know too many people unhappy
In a life from which they'd love to flee
Watching others get everything offered
They're wanton for discovery
Oh my brother my sister my mother
You're loosing your identity
Can't you see that it's you in the window
Shining with intensity

What kind of love is this that keeps me
Hanging on
Despite everything it's doing to me
What is this love that keeps me coming
Back for more
When it will only end in misery...
