Tell me what you wanna be
(Tell me, are you listening?)
Tell me all the things you felt
Before you let them inside your head
Tell me what you're fighting for
(Do you have a reason?)
Let me turn you inside out
If you're inside out
I've been here before

Stuck inside this same revolving door
It's turning me, bringing me back to
Outside, walking to the corner store
If I can just make it through the night

Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
My finger's stuck on the trigger
Your hands are up in the air
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
I'm losing energy
I'm going anywhere

Tell me who you wanna be
(Tell me, are you listening?)
I'll tell you all the things I felt
Before I let them control my head
Tell me what you're waiting for
(I'll tell you that I'm leaving)
Leaving while I'm inside out
(You turned me inside out)

I won't take your poison anymore
My light is my cigarette, burning
Empty whiskey bottle on the floor
Trying to make it though the night

Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
My finger's stuck on the trigger
Your hands are up in the air
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
I'm losing energy
I'm going anywhere

I'll be running, running
Running from here
I'll be running, running
Running from here
I'll be running, running
Let me go

I can't take this silence anymore
(I can't take this silence anymore)
I can't take this silence anymore
(I can't take this)

Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
My finger's stuck on the trigger
Your hands are up in the air
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
I'm losing energy
I'm going anywhere (x2)

    General CommentI'm not sure whether he is pointing the gun at someone and that's why their hands are up (maybe at the "corner store"), or if its an attempt at suicide and someone has their hands up as an instinctive calming response trying to talk him down.

    He seems to think that "they" have brainwashed him and the person he is talking to, but presumably everyone is under "their" control (society/media).

    That's what I think but I can't really make much out of the rest. Good song though.
