Tangled and untwisted,
Our memories are mixed in,
And everything I'm saying I've said here before.
Give me something perfect that I can hold on to.
Give me something perfect that I can...

Hold on just a minute, dear.
How could we have strayed here?
The paths--we've left behind us,
But we've been here before.
Suddenly surrounded.
Our subtleties uncover the very thing that makes me, keeps me a monster.

Every word you said never left your lips untasted.
Motion set in stone, everybody knows we can pull through.
Every word you said never left your lips untasted.
Motion set in stone, everybody knows we can pull through.

Everything we've left unsaid will be the call that brings us to arms.
Pull my strings to make me move.
Master, will you guide me to stars?

We work best unbroken.
We work best unbroken.

Strings are exploited, manipulated from above.
Strings are exploited, manipulated from above.

Every word you said never left your lips untasted.
Motion set in stone, everybody knows we can pull through.
Every word you said never left your lips untasted.
Motion set in stone, everybody knows we can pull through.

Everything we've left unsaid will be the call that brings us to arms.
Pull my strings to make me move.
Master, will you guide me to stars?

We work best unbroken.
We work best unbroken.
We work best unbroken.
Can't you see we're broken?

    Song MeaningHave you ever felt like you just needed a hand in life? I'm sure everyone has. This song is about feeling so repeatedly overwhelmed and that everything around you is falling apart that you just wish someone could take over for a minute. Or that someone would work your strings for you, like a Marionette doll.
