I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing
That slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all
Things I have to take

Jesus, it never ends
It works it's way inside
If the pain goes on, yeah

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I've waited as my times elapsed
Now all I do is live with so much fate

I've wished for this, I've bitched at that
I've left behind this little fact
You cannot kill what you did not create

Oh, I've gotta say what I've gotta say
And then I swear I'll go away
But I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise

I guess I'll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You are left with me 'cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing
That it stops the ache
If the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

Put it back together
Separate the skin from bone
Leave me all the pieces
Then you can leave me alone

Tell me the reality is better than the dream
But I've found out the hard way
Nothing is what it seems

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing
Really stops the ache
But it’s made of all
Things I have to take

Jesus, it never ends
With it's way inside
If the pain goes on
I’m not gonna make it

All I've got
All I've got is insane
All I've got
All I've got is insane

All I've got
All I've got is insane
All I've got
All I've got is insane

All I've got
All I've got is insane
All I've got
All I've got is insane

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing
That it stops the ache
But it’s made of all
Things I have to take

And Jesus, it never ends
Works it's way inside
If the pain goes on
I’m not gonna make it

All I've got
All I've got is insane
All you've got
All you've got is insane

All I've got
All I've got is insane
All I've got
All I've got is insane

    Taylor explained the story behind the album's first single, "Duality," which features the repeated line "I push my fingers into my eyes." "Did you ever get that headache that is just not going to go away, and you end up sticking your thumb and middle finger so far into your eyes, just to stop the pain?" he explained. "It usually has to do with making a choice. You get to that point in everyday life when you have to make a decision that you may not want to, but you're kind of pushed into that position.

    " 'Duality' is about standing at the crossroads of your life, looking down both paths, and going, 'Now what am I going to do?'
