I shut and locked the front door No way in or out I turned and walked the hallways And pulled the curtains down yeah I knelt and emptied the mouths of every plug around But nothing's sound nothing's sound
I'd stay where my last step left me Ignored all my rounds Soon I was seeing visions and cracks along the walls They were upside down
I swallow the truth to keep from lying I swallow my face just to keep from biting Yeah, I swallowed my breath, I went deep, I was diving, I was diving Yeah, I surfaced when all of my being was enlightened
[Repeat: x4] I'm in hiding
It's been about three days now Since I've been above ground i'm no longer overwhelmed and it seems so simple now Yeah, it's funny how things change so much It's all state of mind
I swallow the truth to keep from lying I swallow my face just to keep from biting. I, I am, I swallow my breath, I went deep, I was diving, I was diving Yeah, I surfaced when all of my being was enlightened
[Repeat x8] Now I'm in hiding

Zach from Tallahassee, FlThis is by far one of the best songs they have ever wrote. I know it doesn't matter, but I wish this song got more attention in the mainstream. Instead it only reached 13 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and quickly dissappeared from radio.
James from New Market, InPearl Jam frequently wrote songs about influential individuals..."Sweet Lew", "04/20/02", "Man of the Hour", "Alive"...
Dylan from New Britain, CtIll swallow my words just to keep from lying is one of my favorite lyrics ever
