It's like trapping yourself
Beneath the ice
Cause you're afraid to breathe
Afraid to move
Afraid to be

Somebody else for a while
Maybe start dreaming
Outside your window for a time

Ooh, your cold and golden eyes
Are so unforgiving
From down here
Where I wallow in my fear

But your hands are resting quite comfortably
In your golden silk pockets
Can't you take 'em out to help me out

No, it's all eyes on me again
I couldn't turn around
If I wanted, it's the
Same from any given angle

And it's so hard to not be afraid
When you don't have a reputation
All or nothing
I couldn't possibly hope to explain

What certain thing
Used to start dominating my mind
As the butterflies rise
And the lights go down in expectation

And I suppress this opportunity again
Please don't forgive me, my friend
No, not this time
And no, never again

So here's to my
Secret world, a paradise
It keeps moving along
2,000 feet beneath the cold, cold ground

And icy cavernous tomb to remind me
That nothing here will ever change
'till I kick for the surface once again

And if you ever get the urge
To roll the dice
Chances are this place of yours,
It will be found

Forever to be criticized
And thrown against the judgement of the world
And once it's there, it will never change

And you say
Is that really all
That keeps you down?

And you say
Is that really all
That keeps you down?

And you say,
My god, that can't be all
That holds you back

And you say
Is that really all
That keeps you down
