Original video
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me

Quick thought, left or right
Could it be a strong case of fight or flight?
We never notice we're slightly overworked
You're self-conscious
Sweating beads of doubt
This can't be right
Whisperin' out, "This can't be right, right?"
This ain't like a TV
I'm scared life will leave me
Strung out and needin' love
Surely I'm as overcome but brimstone won't come to
But I ain't done
Surely I ain't done
Oh, nah nah
I ain't done
Oh, but my mind's on the run

Caused by your never-ending dream
And it ain't what it seems
It ain't what it seems
You know what I mean?

We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me

Monster on the bed, regurgitating out
There's monkey on my bite
Pulling 'em like puppet strings, slow to react
Tell me what's the matter, love
[?] Drive slow-mo
Front cool in speedo
Fight against the rising tide
Breathe deep never stop clawing at the light
Clinging on to what we got

But I ain't done
I ain't done
Surely, surely, surely we must overcome

But my mind's on the run
My mind's on the run
Caused by your never-ending dream
Nah, and it ain't what it seems
It ain't what it seems
Baby, it ain't what it seems
Nah, it ain't what it seems

Too cruel to be me
To be cruel
Don't wanna lose
Uh

We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
