Said she was an angel, she was mending broken wings.
Told me she could teach me how to fly.
There's no easy answer and illusions that I hold.
I watch her chase the dragon every night.

Screeching in my head.
It's burning in my bed.

[Chorus]
I'm looking within.
I'm looking without.
I'm searching for signs of life.
The answers are there,
Does anybody care?
Would you talk to me, Old Man Wise...

Said he was a saviour, and his mission was to heal.
Brought him joy to take away their pain.
By the thousands they would swarm, like moths around the light.
Blinded by his image and his name.

Screeching in my head.
It's burning in my bed.
The truths in side of you.
Is it alive or dead?

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus]

I'm looking within.
I'm looking without.
I'm searching for signs of life.
The answers are clear,
Does anybody hear?
To talk to me, Old Man Wise...

Things got out of control...
Things got out of control...
Things got out of control...
Things got out of control... (fades)
