Take a moment if you dare
Catch yourself a breath of air
There’s another life out there
And you should try it
Dead-ends hide on every street
Look before you place your feet
Cracks and fissures keep the beat
And you’re inside it

Every thought you never dared to think
Every mood you always knew would sink
Every line you spoke out loud in a jest
All the time you took to be your best
Is soon forgotten

The sun must never touch your skin
It could expose the dark within
You’re paranoid about the paranoia
And panic hits without a sign
You worry ‘bout it all the time
Every perfect moment is a hidden warning

Cuz everything makes your pretty head spin
Nagging thoughts are starting to sink in
With everything this way it’s better to forget
Than end up in a place with something to regret

Your transatlantic shopping sprees
Your health forever guarantees
Organic-bio-life’s a breeze in cozy prisons
But hiding out in the salad bar
Isn’t gonna get you far
And bottled wine is vinegar tomorrow

And everything around here makes your pretty head spin
It’s piling up high – you’re back where you begin
Moments you try so hard to forget
Are promising to’ve been the best ones yet

Yeah, everytime you shut your eyes it appears
Everytime you trace your steps back here
None of your convictions have the same old ring
But no doubt you will find a place for everything
In cozy prisons

So if you’re careful
You won’t get hurt
But if you’re careful all the time
Then what’s it worth?
