How far you gonna take this Illusion?
Theres no end in sight
The circular incision makes the cube I hold just not fit quite right
Don't ask me whats a matter It'll only end up starting a fight
Just sit tight

Does it even matter?
Does it even matter now?
Cause nobodies watching
It's all unfamiliar ground

The crackling cement walls left a truth to smother the lies
the vicious teeth sunk in and I'm afraid they're not too fond of the taste
Just sit back, relax, and let your mind do the talkin tonight
Don't fight it

Sure got a lot to go on but the's already passed
It's only a mistake if you're certain the feeling will last.
