How far would I go
If I had to forget all I know
How long would I ride
If I got tired of hiding how I feel

How deep would I climb
To bury the truths I find
And how small I've become
In this burned out blazing sun
I'm broken blue

Oh I shut down
Oh I shut down

Relax, rewind (for the thousandth time)
Old movies run on in my mind (in my mind)
How hard would I fight
If I had to rewrite the old reviews

Oh I shut down
Oh I shut down
I try so hard to wash away the obvious
and shut down

And its hard to watch the windows bleed
for several reasons I can see
And all the while the air I breathe
is polluted by your psychic dreams

Oh I shut down
Oh I shut down
I try so hard to wash away the obvious
and shut down


And its hard to watch the windows bleak
for several reasons I can see
And all the while the air I breathe
is polluted by your psychic dreams
It's all compressed so easily!
We're all repressed so easily!

I shut down! I shut down! I shut down!
I shut down
I shut down
