Original video
From the top to the bottom! (Bottom to top I stop!)
From the core I've forgotten! (In the middle of my thoughts!)
Taken far from my safety! (So I'm bright in the sky!)
But the sun will escape me (So why did I try?)

From the top to the bottom! (Bottom to top I stop!)
From the core I've forgotten! (In the middle of my thoughts!)
Taken far from my safety! (So I'm bright in the sky!)
But the sun will escape me (So why do I try?)


From the thread to the needle, middle to end
When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut
Looking through the rust and rotten dust
A spot of light floods the floor
Pours itself upon the world of pretend
Then the eyes ease open and its dark again


From the top to the bottom! (Bottom to top I stop!)
From the core I've forgotten! (In the middle of my thoughts!)
Taken far from my safety! (So I'm bright in the sky!)
But the sun will escape me (So why did I try?)

From the top to the bottom! (Bottom to top I stop!)
From the core I've forgotten! (In the middle of my thoughts!)
Taken far from my safety! (So I'm bright in the sky!)
But the sun will escape me (So why do I try?)


In a minute you'll find me, eyes burn me up!
You say you'll never forget me...
But the lies have piled up...


Moving all around
Screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
And as the wheels go 'round
The sunset creeps past the streetlamps, cars, chain-links and concrete
A window then grows and captures the eye
Cries out yellow light as it passes it by
A small black figure sits in front of a box
Inside a box of rock with the needles on top
Nothing stops in this land of the pain
The sane loose not knowing they where part of the game
But then the inside changes, the box stays the same in shame
Shovel up the pieces to the pain
You can try to hide yourself in this world of pretend
When the papers crumpled up it can't be perfect again


From the top to the bottom! (Bottom to top I stop!)
From the core I've forgotten! (In the middle of my thoughts!)
Taken far from my safety! (So I'm bright in the sky!)
But the sun will escape me (So why do I try?)

From the top to the bottom! (Bottom to top I stop!)
From the core I've forgotten! (In the middle of my thoughts!)
Taken far from my safety! (So I'm bright in the sky!)
But the sun will escape me (So why do I try?)


In a minute you'll find me, eyes burn me up!
You say you'll never forget me...
But the lies have piled up...


Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back!
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you!

Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back!
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you!

(Are you afraid I'll meet you?)
Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

(Afraid I'll meet you)
Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

(Are you afraid I'll meet you?)
Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

(Afraid I'll meet you)
Now I've got you caught in the act, you better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you


In a minute you'll find me, eyes burn me up!
You say you'll never forget me...
But the lies have piled up...

In a minute you'll find me... Eyes burn me up...
You say you'll never forget me...
But the lies have piled up...
