There was a time when we were happy
And then you were hurt
She turned you into a mindless zombie
Breathing your life away
You disappeared in that chair
Leaving only smoke and ash

She sucked you up into a dream
But I'd still see you from time to time
Some things can never change
And your heart surely didn't
But it was too weak on that summer day
You were admitted to the clinic

Boys were crawling up the walls
Girls shivering down the hall
And there was something awfully wrong
When they tied you up with no rope
And gave you no hope
What kind of song was that?

There was a time when I'd say
I wish these days would never end
But now I wish they'd never come back
Lost in my own town
Where I nearly died
With a needle stuck inside my arm

Left alone when we were kings
Our homes got ruined for Christmas
And holidays will always make me cry
So we just sank deeper
In this ship we built for ourselves
Trying to breathe just one more time

Boys were crawling up the walls
Girls shivering down the hall
And there was something awfully wrong
When they tied me up with no rope
And gave me no hope
What kind of song was that?
