Swallow me whole, get me out of sight
I know you know I’m scared to death
What kind of role are you supposed to play?
‘Cause it doesn’t work, though I’m out of breath
You try so hard to make me fall
It almost works but it’s worth the stress
‘Cause I survive it
There’s need to describe it
‘Cause someone might need to know
And they won’t need to guess

Like I did ‘cause nobody told me
Like I did ‘cause nobody told me

I’m falling through your atmosphere
I don’t know how I got here
Or why I always end up here
Or why I don’t mind being here
You’re always something different
‘Cause I’m always listening
To what you have to say
You can take a little piece of me
But don’t swallow me whole
Black hole

It’s not easy to see where I’m going
How can I know where not to tread?
I can’t believe
My eyes must be deceiving me
Carefully relieving me of common sense

Like before, but this time I’m learning
Like before, but this time I’m learning

You don’t have permission to take me
Though I’m in your grounds
I’ll find my way out
Just to be caught again
You have permission to break me
Though I’m not in one piece
I’ll take care of me
And things will inevitably change

Like before, but this time I’m learning
Like before, but this time I’m learning

Someone might need to know
