Talk to me,
Can you listen to me now,
Do you understand?
Can you identify?
But it's as if you seem to,
Make a small effort,
But you bend you're bending my mind,
And you try, and you try, I can see you try to;

Suffocate,
And smother me,
Covered so I can't breathe,

(We) When we collapse,
(Fall) Our weakened hands,
(Down) Fall together at once abandoned,

(We) They'll force you down,
(Fall) And strap you in,
(Down) Now we’ll agree and understand,

Speak slowly,
You gotta get it all out now,
What are you saying?
Just remember we will always be here,
Just in case you have been waiting, waiting,
To show us something or give us some sign,
As if you're gonna:

Suffocate… Smothering,
Covered so you can't breathe,

(We) When we collapse,
(Fall) Our weakened hands,
(Down) Fall together at once abandoned,

(We) They'll force you down,
(Fall) And strap you in,
(Down) Now we’ll agree and understand,

Gently lure your submission,
All the while the suspicion grows… grows,
So be sick of listening,
To senile old and staggering,
Naive… Youth,
Pick us up when:

(We) When we collapse,
(Fall) Our weakened hands,
(Down) Fall together at once abandoned,

(We) They'll force you down,
(Fall) And strap you in,
(Down) Now we’ll agree and understand,

(We) When we collapse,
(Fall) Our weakened hands,
(Down) Fall together at once abandoned,

(We) They'll force you down,
(Fall) And strap you in,
(Down) Now we’ll agree and understaaaaand...
Now we’ll agree and understand.

    General Commentall finger eleven songs are amazing, if you heard all of them even the early shit you'd see that this isnt such a great song in comparison. dont get me wrong this is a great song but they have many better ones.

    General Commentthe end to the first verse is wrong on this site......

    "And you try, and you try, to see inside and;"

    is actually :

    "And you try, and you try, I can see you try to suffocate;"
