You are killing me, your mouth is movin'
But I cannot hear you speak
Life's a tragedy, go on livin'
In a world not for the weak
Keep your dreams inside your heart
Never let the pressure tear you apart
Truth is whispered on a breath
Loud enough to cover the smell of death

(chorus)
Never thought too important to mention
Livin' through the birth, the birth of tension
Never thought too important to mention
Livin' with the tension, tension, tension

Don't you understand too much tension, snap
Then you lose your grip
Too many demands start at birth, snap
From the womb you're ripped
Leave your dreams inside, behind
Never had a reason that you'll never find
Tension builds another way
Gonna make you all go away

(chorus)

Too much tension, all around
Too much tension, bring you down
All the pressures in the narrow mind
All the reasons you'll never find
Did you kill your father, sleep with your mother?
Idolize your sister, jealous your brother?
Did ya kick the dog, were you beat a strap?
Were you really be abused, were you fakin' all that?
Too tense

You're killin' me, so many ways
So little time to think
Life's catastrophe, my glass empty
And I really need a drink
Movin' all so very quick
Movin' so fast that it makes me sick
Let me outta here
Livin' ain't livin' with the tension and the fear

(chorus)

    General CommentDid you kill your father, sleep with your mother?
    Idolize your sister, jealous your brother?
    Did ya kick the dog, were you beat a strap?
    Were you really be abused, were you fakin' all that?
    Too tense

    Great lyrics this person sounds really messed up and ultimately the bringer of Tension.
