Quiet in the cave, that's why I stayed.
When you left me alone I tucked it in, too; mine.
I wrote myself a note: "It's just shadows cast by the light."
I wrote myself a note: "If you wanna see the real thing, then come outside."
I've been talking to myself since I was a kid, from past and future hell; Wherever I've gone missing.
I thought that was my face, but who I knew was made up after all.
I took the sucker punch, and opened up the cut;
I thought that would be enough. I said: "Please, wake up."
Have mercy on the one who's mean and tries to take you down before
You can do to it to him: that's all he's hurting you for.
And that's me, reflected in you.
I see reflections in you.
I dream reflected in you -- but who I knew was made up after all.
I let myself go broke trying to fill your cup;
I thought that would be enough. I said: Please, wake up."
