My reaction, my response
I'm a function in need of x
Ask me questions and I reply
I'm never first but I'm always next
And we stare in our eyes
Never blinking and going dry
Do you care more than I
Who will get the last word?
And if we trace back the time
Who began with the first line?
In any case it's not mine
Because these days I can only react

I'll never speak without your lead
And I'm your shadow; I react
I'll be the gear between your teeth
When you're spinning, I react
You are the neutron at lightspeed
Spring me open, I react
But can I find the zero point I need?
Can I change it all and then take it back?

It's so easy to shrink an inch
Or is this room growing even more?
And it's so easy to light a match
When you've been burned once or twice before
And when I swing blind in rage
I'm in search of the first page
And when I sing from the stage
Who will get the last word?
You're the one who creates
All to which I retaliate
But can I ever navigate
Another path than to react?

I'll find where aggression hides away
Where my own two hands hold sway
It's a bright and beautiful new day
I will act, I will act
Your reaction, your relapse
Out of love will grow collapse
Something somewhere finally snaps
And I will act, I will act
