You hold me inside your iris
Like a terminal stain on life
You condescend to my primal brain
And twist me around like a knife 
Can't begin to explain 
The feelings I have restrained 
Don't ask me how I am
 Because you're too busy planning your epitaph 
Let me tell you

Don't, try to be the one, person 
Who has stayed, just to say
They never left me!
Aggravated, complicated, someone say it
God, I never learn

You keep me hidden behind a curtain,
An audible human display 
You feed me orchids to give me courage 
And keep me in line with disdain 

Can't begin to explain 
The feelings I have restrained 
Don't ask me how I am
 Because you're too busy planning your epitaph 
Let me tell you

Don't, try to be the one, person 
Who has stayed, just to say
They never left me!
Aggravated, complicated, someone say it
God, I never learn

I have nothing left for you
You left me with nothing 

I live at arm's length and die a little,
 Between your constants by day
I want my soul back before it's over,
I can't even wish you away

Can't begin to explain 
The feelings I have restrained 
Don't ask me how I am
 Because you're too busy planning your epitaph 
Let me tell you

Don't, try to be the one, person 
Who has stayed, just to say
They never left me!
Aggravated, complicated, someone say it
God, I never learn

I never learn!
