I wonder now and then
If I ever really knew what brought the end.
If I got the truth, my friend.
So I brought you here tonight to finally get to your insides.
Close the drapes and lock the door.
I'll ask once more.
I just have to know.
Is there something on your mind?
Maybe something that you never said.
Now all we have is time,
So break it over my head.
Blink your eyes once for "yes" and twice for "no"
I'm listening.
Take your time as you decide
We have all night to do this.
You're not going anywhere.
Tie your ankles to this chair.
Don't be scared, the choice is yours.
Truth or dare?
You look as sharp as this knife.
I'm not done with you and I.
You said you already told me why.
Well, how about now?
Is there something on your mind?
Maybe something that you never said.
Now all we have is time,
So break it over my head.
I'm just trying to break my fall.
I meant you no harm at all.
So go on, be you.
So strong and so cruel.
It's just a thought I had.
It's really not that bad.

    General CommentOh my i cannot believe the lack of comments for this song. Such a wonderful sound to it.

    It would appear after reading the lyrics that the narrator had some interrogating to do.

    "I brought you here tonight to finally get to your insides.
    Close the drapes and lock the door."

    Wants the person to tell the truth. Wants answers. Plenty of time, we won't leave until i get the information from you.

    "Now all we have is time,
    So break it over my head.
    Blink your eyes once for "yes" and twice for "no"
    I'm listening.
    Take your time as you decide
    We have all night to do this.
    You're not going anywhere.
    Tie your ankles to this chair."

    Hey look all i wanted was the truth, don't hate me for this. You're so stubborn--refusing to give me what i need from you. Look, I'm not a bad person; I'm just in the dark and i need a clue.

    "I'm just trying to break my fall.
    I meant you no harm at all.
    So go on, be you.
    So strong and so cruel.
    It's just a thought I had.
    It's really not that bad."
