lyrics

If I gave all that I am and all that I should be
(All that you could be)
We would be infinite within machines built from sin
(Stay calm and-)
Don't interrupt me mid-train of thought
Self-deprecation is all that I've got
It takes integrity to change

Left to my own devices again, my mind starts to wander
These noises sound like thunder and who is that I hear?

- I am your conscience and I'm alive...
- Don't listen to him, he'll only tell you lies!
- Will someone please just help me out?
- I won't trick you-
- But I feel sick too!
- Don't argue! Help me make up my mind!
- Alright fine, but I need time!
- No, wait, 'cause that's a lie..
- No! Fuck you both! What's mine is mine!
- (And no one even asked us)

You're a mess, don't stress, it's for the best
Do less, don't worry this is not a test
Stay on top of misguided thoughts
Which thoughts you ask? The ones you forgot
You're asking me like what's my opinion?
Well let me take control of all of your decisions

WE COULD BE INFINITE

Pity the man who let's numbers decide
Important decisions and his path in life
We will advance and develop as one
If I move past the present what will we become?

Be as you wish to seem
An illusion of nature - not real, a dream
I think therefore I am
Mean what you say at least
Delusions of grandeur? Give me a moment's peace
And what was that about staying calm?!

(You're missing the point...)

I don't think I am
Call it luck or call it chance
This world is full of sycophants
Suspicion always haunts the guiltiest of minds
(Calm your anguish in the solace you will find)

And what did I say? (What did you say?)
About my train of thought? (Train of what? Have you forgot?)
I'm running on empty (No, you're not...)

Be as you wish to seem
An illusion of nature - not real, a dream
I think therefore I am
Mean what you say at least
Delusions of grandeur? Give me a moment's peace
And what was that about staying calm?!

If I gave all that I am and all that I should be
(ALL THAT YOU COULD BE!)
We would be infinite within machines built from sin
(STAY CALM AND-)
Don't interrupt me mid-train of thought
Self-deprecation is all that I've got
(HAVE YOU FORGOT?!)
It takes integrity to change...
