You were the one that made her cry You were the one that told her lies
You were the one whose brain moved in circles
Neither an adult nor a child

Now it only moves you forward
And back to the blackness at the same time

Burnt out tracks, the world went black Futile
Lost my head, the world went red
Futile
It's not true, the world went blue
Futile

You were the one collecting space
You were the one just saving face
You were the one whose brain moved in circles
Neither an adult nor a child

Now it only moves you forward
And back to the blackness at the same time

Burnt out tracks, the world went black Futile
Lost my head, the world went red
Futile
It's not true, the world went blue
Futile

    General CommentIs it supposed to be a b-side taken from In Absentia? Because I personally think that the lyrics can also reflect and be connected to the theme of the album. I could be wrong of course.
