From the world I look down
Upon you all below
Running to the places you must go

Sugartongue, and my hunger is still young
But I'll chase lights on until the morning comes

And the world is flashing at the window
(we never close our eyes)
The ? flies until the sun goes
(we never close our eyes)
I see you, you hear me,
You know I'm always watching

And there's nowhere I can escape you
(we never close our eyes)
There's nowhere I can escape you
(we never close our eyes)

Upside-down people run deep into the ground
Chasing shapes of shadows on the wall
Would I die if my knee on the sky should fall?
If my knee on the sky should fall?
The time and pain and the love destroy us all

And the lights are flashing at the window
(we never close our eyes)
The ? flies until the sun goes
(we never close our eyes)
No sleep now, no pity
This room is cold and empty

And there's nowhere I can escape you
(We never close our eyes)
And there's nowhere I can escape you
(We never close our eyes)
Where you lead, I'll follow
You know I'm always watching you-ooh-ooh-ooh

(We never close our eyes)
(We never close our eyes)
(No sleep, no pity)
Can you hear, can you hear
Can you hear, can you hear?
Button in your ear
Can you hear?
(can you hear me?)
Cause I'm now watching you

(?)

oh, oh, oh, oh
oh, oh, oh, oh

    My Interpretation"Upside-down people run deep into the ground
    Chasing shapes of shadows on the wall"

    This reminds me of the allegory of Plato's cave.
