lyrics

He said, I know, and he did.
And now, to some extent, it never fit.
In the act, I cleared the stage and called the cast.
He awed at all the work involved, he'd never asked.

I know. I know what it's like to feel a divide.

I called it off, you brought it on.
It pissed us off, but not for long.
You told me, you told me not to worry.

His theory passed, he walked away, I sat at home.
A prop in hand, letting the light fade, he stood alone.
He strung a tale from his history all across the floor.
Interwoven with another thread that was a metaphor.

I know. I heard your reply.
But I always lie.

I told you off, you brought me down.
Removed the ego that'd gone around.
You called me, you called me and it echoes.

Where's your control?
You filled it full
Where's your control?
You filled it full

Of your crass apathy.
I've withdrawn. Heart and pawn.
Per your request, I'll leave the rest
And take the vine. But you decide.

We sat in silence til
He cried so loud he shook the ground, and impossibly
Left to where the world can spin at a steeper degree.

I know. I know you will defy.
But I thought to try.

You told me I had done alright.
That I'd made a change, however slight.
You fooled me, you fooled me and I'm sorry.
