lyrics

What went wrong?
No matter how many doors I place
I can never fill these holes
This perfect plan was supposed to be my flawless intention

Lights flicker
My mind turns on and off
Shapes sharpen but as soon as I turn to look they fade away
Is there no hope or was I always dreaming?
How can there be holes in a perfect plan?
I thought everything through
But everything was never enough

What went wrong?
No matter how many fucking doors I place
This perfect plan was supposed to be the master plan

Lights flicker
My mind turns on and off
Shapes sharpen but as soon as I turn to look they fade away
Is there no hope, or was I always dreaming?
How can there be holes?

We kept being misunderstood
by the holes in our voice that was never heard.
We struggle to speak
only to be misplaced
as something we never were

I have to see this through
I Cannot see this through
I must see this through

What went wrong?
No matter how many fucking doors I place this perfect plan
is a gaping void
Where my mind never rests.
We kept being misunderstood.

We flicker like light in automation
throughout our journey we travel in circles
we hit a brick wall and fall to slumber
we are the children that bear no fruition

Exit this square shaped mind and enter the circle beneath
