Zero and zero is
Nothing but zero
Cancer and people
Conspire together
Running and running
And going forever
Collected and sampled
Starving for zero

Come see my cage
Built in my grave (x4)

Minus the inside
And minus the circle
Inhabhit the riddle
And fill in the hovel
Wherein and herein
Between us and near us
Zero and zero is
Nothing but zero

Come see my cage
Built-in my grave (x4)

Keeping myself alive
Through your empathy (x4)

Let me go!

Keeping myself alive
Through your empathy (x4)

Leave me alone!

Keeping myself alive (x19)

    "In my opinion, the whole song is about Coreys life living in Iowa. Zero and zero nothing but zero means Iowa= the middle of nowhere. Running and running going on forever means there is nowhere to go, and he can't get out. When he says starving for zero, I think he means that he is STRIVING for nothing, and he wants something, and feeling, but there is nowhere to get it. When he says come see my cage built in my grain, I think he means the obvious... I am stuck here, and I have nowhere to go. But when he says come see my cage -built in migraine, I think he means See me, my cage, my creation. It makes him ache and hurt. He can't think. He has lost his mental picture of himself. This place he needs to escape. He needs life, and he needs to feel, but he can't. He can't see the world through his eyes, because he is stuck in his cage. His home. And when he says keeping myself alive through your EMPATHY, I think he means that WE are keeping him alive by our understanding of his lyrics, and his life and feelings. I think this song and all the others were meant to be figured out by us. He wants us to understand him. He needs someone to understand him, because no one ever did. He is counting on us. He needs us. If there are people out there that understand what he is trying to say, I believe he escaped his cage."
