Some days, feels my soul has left my body
Feel I'm floating high above me
Like I'm looking down upon me Start sinking, every time I get to thinking It's easier to keep on moving Never stop to let the truth in
 Sometimes I feel like it's all been done Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one Sometimes I wanna change everything I've ever done
I'm too tired to fight and yet too scared to run

And if I stop for a minute I think about things I really don't wanna know
And I'm the first to admit it Without you I'm a liner stranded in an ice floe

I feel like a thief who has no faith Maybe more than by the grade Of the drugs he took that day

Sinking, in the pain he's been inflicting Yet he's feeling like the victim Just a horoscope's to blame  Sometimes I feel like a little lost child Sometimes I feel like the chosen one Sometimes I wanna shout out 'til everything goes quiet Sometimes I wonder why I was ever born

And if I stop for a minute I think about things I really don't wanna know
And I'm the first to admit it Without you I'm child And so wherever you go, I will follow 
Ugh, yeah
And baby you are just beautiful From crown to your cuticles You held down with two sons
You never frown when duty calls You know me, I gave you more than you can handle But you still keep a handle on it
Even when I take something beautiful and vandal on it
No more females Well how come my emails got notes on a scandal It's like Eve with the apple A priest in a chapel Overcome by the devil's tackle I'm still shackled in the battle I know, I'm such a hassle Every time I let me thoughts go
I get baffled So I hardly pause
I just crossed z's with these gnarly broads Cause it hurts me just to see what I finally lost
So I guess I'm just a fiend Consumed by the scene The stage and the screen where it's just me and Keane 
And if I stop for a minute I think about things I really don't wanna know
(So I guess I'm just a fiend, consumed by the scene)
And I'm the first to admit it Without you I'm a liner stranded in an ice floe
(The stage and the screen where it's just me and Keane)
