Infinight – The Downward Spiral lyrics

Why don't you ever listen to me
Why don't you just take my good advice
Cause I decide the way things got to be
I'll take care of you all your life

Because I am
The one who knows best
What is good for you
Now open up your eyes
Accept the truth

This downward spiral tears me down but I
Will never take your hand
I'm feeling lost
I'll shut the doors and hide
I will close my mind from you

It's only for your own good, why can't you see
To keep you tightly reined, believe me
I know you'll show me gratitude someday
Until then you will obey

Because I am
The one who cares
For you like noone else
So don't deny
My good advice again

Ref ii:
I've been suppressed, by you, obsessed
With finding a way to escape
So now - I feel I'm getting near
This secret door leading me deep
-so deep inside

I's been for your own good
I gave all I could
And now you owe to me!

... Why can't you see

Ref iii:
I've been suppressed, by you, possessed,
But I've made my great escape
I see - the bright, disturbing light, leading me deep inside
... Swallowing me - whole and alive
Noone can touch me deep in here
Here I am safe from all my fears
I've found a place to stay - forever safe!

Why can't you see you can't touch me now deep in here
On my knees I've prayed about being free
Now I did somehow escape from you
I have made my final bow
On this stage of life

So deep inside
So deep inside my mind
Where there's noone
Where only I'm - alive
Somewhere inside is the place where I'll hide
Inside I'm still alive
