  • Now I can't behave
    I feel it in my feet on the streets
    But don't you know?
    There's something I can feel when I breathe

    I told you once
    You're breaking into separate parts
    But don't you know?
    It's something that I can't live without

    And if somebody's going to make it
    Then this somebody ought to be you
    And I keep telling my reflection
    Ambitions are already starting to fade

    I can't tolerate
    The feelings that I feel when I feel
    But don't you know?
    Some feelings never seem to let go

    Like a silver blade
    I cut my way out of control
    But don't you know?
    Some blades will cut you right to the bone

    And if somebody's going to make it
    Then this somebody ought to be you
    And if somebody's going to fake it
    Then this somebody, somebody is you

    If it's me that was going to take it
    Then I know that it wouldn't be straight
    And I keep telling my reflection
    Ambitions are already starting to fade

    I can't tolerate

    And if somebody's going to make it
    Then this somebody ought to be you
    And if somebody's going to fake it
    Then this somebody, somebody is you

    If it's me that was going to take it
    Then I know that it wouldn't be straight
    And I keep telling my reflection
