Citizen Erased

Album: Origin of Symmetry (2001)
  • Break me in, teach us to cheat
    And to lie, cover up
    What shouldn't be shared
    And the truth's unwinding
    Scraping away at my mind
    Please stop asking me to describe
    For one moment
    I wish you'd hold your stage
    With no feelings at all
    Open-minded
    I'm sure I used to be so free

    Self-expressed, exhausting for all
    To see and to be
    What you want and what you need
    The truth's unwinding
    Scraping away at my mind
    Please stop asking me to describe

    For one moment
    I wish you'd hold your stage
    With no feelings at all
    Open-minded
    I'm sure I used to be so free

    For one moment
    I wish you'd hold your stage
    With no feelings at all
    Open-minded
    I'm sure I used to be so free

    Wash me away
    Clean your body of me
    Erase all the memories
    They will only bring us pain
    And I've seen, all I'll ever need Writer/s: MATTHEW JAMES BELLAMY
