Lost my shape  Trying to act casual!
Can't stop
I might end up in the hospital 
I'm changing my shape 
I feel like an accident 
They're back!
To explain their experience 
Isn't it weir
 Looks too obscure to me
 Wasting away
And that was their policy
I'm ready to leave 
I push the fact in front of me
 Facts lost
 Facts are never what they seem to be
 Nothing there!
No information left of any kind
 Lifting my head
 Looking for danger signs
 There was a line
 There was a formula  Sharp as a knife  Facts cut a hole in us
 There was a line
 There was a formula  Sharp as a knife  Facts cut a hole in us
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
The feeling returns
 Whenever we close out eyes
 Lifting my head
 looking around inside 
The island of doubt 
It's like the taste of medicine  Working by hindsight 
Got the message from the oxygen  Making a list
Find the cost of opportunity  Doing it right  Facts are useless in emergencies 
The feeling returns
 Whenever we close out eyes
 Lifting my head
 Looking around inside.
 Facts are simple and facts are straight  Facts are lazy and facts are late
 Facts all come with points of view
 Facts don't do what I want them to
 Facts just twist the truth around
 Facts are living turned inside out
 Facts are getting the best of them
 Facts are nothing on the face of things  Facts don't stain the furniture  Facts go out and slam the door
 Facts are written all over your face
 Facts continue to change their shape 
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
