Do you hear this breath it's an obsessive breath
Can you feel this beat it's an obsessive heart beat
Waiting to be joined with its obsession

I close my eyes but I can't sleep
The thin membrane can't veil
The branded picture of you 

The signs and signals show, the traffic lights say go
Again you baffle me pretending not to see, me

I broke into your room, I broke down in my room
Touched your belongings there, and left a lock of my hair
Another sign for you

You screamed into my face get the hell out of my place
Another sign for me? can you forgive me?
For not understanding your ways

You know sometimes you take it all too far
Then I remember it's a game between you and me
A divine test for us two

It's all in my imagination
Yes they even say that our mission, is only
My obsession

Do you hear this breath it's an oppressive breath
Suffocating in the poison of your obsession
Can you feel this beat it's a possessive beat
Your pulse stops in the claws of your obsession
