And the world's
a sadder place
when you are lost
and the drugs wear off.
when you're out of mind
it's out of view.
so I'm cutting loose
from my parachute.
All we are
and all we see's
just juxtaposed.
I'm a mirrored me.
That's why this heart of mine's
a broken machine
that I cannot start
'cause I lost all the parts.

I feel it's much too late
can't keep the wolves at bay
The;res nothing left to lose
if you can't take it with you

Oh, the world's
a sinking ship,
we're the wrench that stuck
in it;s mechanics
So pry me out of life's cold machinery
'cause I'm getting tired
of the scenery.

I feel it's much too late
can't keep the wolves at bay
there's nothing left to lose
if you can't take it with you
i fear there's nothing left
the world's gone blind and deaf
we're given what we choose
give me unconsciousness.

    General Commenttaken from the booklet:

    and the world's
    a sadder place
    when you are lost
    and the drugs wear off.
    when you're out of mind
    it's out of view.
    so I'm cutting loose
    from my parachute.
    All we are
    and all we see's
    just juxtaposed.
    I'm a mirrored me.
    That's why this heart of mine's
    a broken machine
    that I cannot start
    'cause I lost all the parts.

    I feel it's much too late
    can't keep the wolves at bay
