So you want to know the difference
between the broken and the lost
between the voiceless and the muted
between the payback and the cost

So you want to know the distance
between the incomplete and made
between the drowning and the drifting
between the drowning and the saved

But oh I don't want to be your insight
or your door or your key
I don't want to be the measure
of your heart or your needs

So you want to know the distance
between the boundless and the chained
and you want to know the difference
between the taken and the gained

But oh I don't want to be your insight
or your door or your key
I don't want to be the measure
of your heart or your needs

Years go by awake at night
Goodbye...

I don't want to the measure
No, I don't want to the be the measure
