You said you wouldn't answer the questions in my mouth,
With that tortured stare you held me down and let me know that there was no way out.
But I think you underestimate my sorrows,
Unaware that maybe I have grown accustomed to the shame,
I've taken the long road back from the Ozarks
where the night shined like it would never shine again.

I know I won't answer the questions in your mouth.
Well if what's mine is yours here my burden I dare you to find a single way out.
I think you underestimate my contrition.
Unaware that maybe i Know how to stay the same.
I've walked the long road back from downtown,
Where the night shined like it would never shine again.

And i say this in light of all that you said.
I say this in light of all of the dead
that rest at the bottom of the sea tonight.
Oh, tonight.

And I know I'm just a face that you remember from yesterdays.
Well maybe, just maybe, this ones got something more to say,
I think you underestimate my dependence,
Unaware that maybe i will hate what I will always hold,
I've taken the long way back and found that nothing is any different than it was before.

And I say this in light of all that you said.
I say this in light of all of the dead
Who rest at the bottom of the sea tonight.

And I say this in light of all that you said.
I say this in light of the evil that spreads,
With every step farther you take.

And I say this in light of all that you've said.
I say this in light of the evil that spreads,
With every step farther you take.

And I know this cause I've felt what crawls under the bed
and whispers in my ear about the regrets that I can't mend.
The terrors that crawl through the thoughts in my head.
In my head.
