  • Lyrics
  • They know what everybody knows
    Better sit, a letter from a thief says
    I lead when everybody sleeps
    So feel the ways to cover up the old wounds
    Lost in a finger frosted lie
    These sensors medicating through it all.

    If you ever enter my mind
    Stay there, you'll live
    To fend it off and fool them all
    Stay there

    Faceless, so little there to judge
    Left wing, let's separate the cold out
    Opposites, we never need to tell
    One's thing, I found I'm having to
    I'm having to

    If you ever enter my mind
    Stay there, you'll live
    To fend it off and fool them all
    Stay there, you'll live
    To fend it off and fool them all

    Solitude
    Waste of a man
    This fades as soon as the sun sets

    I know all these fade or all that lives
    Imagine here's a better feel
    Told to dissolve or choose to fade
    Or stay here
    You'll live

    If you ever enter my mind
    Stay there, you'll live
    To fend it off and fool them all
    Stay there, you'll live
    To fend it off and fool them all

    If you ever enter my mind
    Stay there, you'll live
    To fend it off and fool them all
    Stay thereWriter/s: PETER LOEFFLER, SAMUEL LOEFFLER
