Control

It won’t let me go
How did it get control?
Who let it in? – Well that’d be me.
It won’t let me sleep
It’s covering my soul
Who let it in? – Well that’d be me
Now sunlight hurts my eyes
The bath overflows – water’s gone cold
But I don’t mind


& He falls outside in
The cracks started to show
But he smiles all the same
Says something about control
Says I choose –
To be this way you see
This is all I know

Now it won’t let me go
Shit how did it get so close
Who let it in? Well that’d be me.
It won’t let me sleep
It’s covering my soul
Who let it in? – Well that’d be me
Now sunlight hurts my eyes
The bath overflows – water’s gone cold
But I don’t mind

He falls outside in
The cracks started to show
But he smiles all the same
Says something about control
Says I choose –
To be this way you see
This is all I know

I LOVE this song, and the lyrics are FANTASTIC!!!

I really like the 'who let it in, well that'd be me' line. Great way to talk about self induced issues. You guys have SOOOOOOO much talent!

Take care,
Ron

In my hungover state, it's nice to read these lyrics, lol.

Very personal, and self-affecting lyrics, ie-everyone could relate. Great. Very Happy

I was born and raised in the Middle East and South East Asia. This is about growing up there and coming home to here.......

Mercury Rising

See I was born under summer skies,
blue seas and I
thank my father that –
Every day I got to see with
Eyes wide open,
sunsets called me
mercury rising

You – Do you know who we are?
Yes you - Do you know who we are?
We’re the little men rising
Rising up on you

Then you taught me
How good was faked and how different gets you
Broken arms and different gets you
Broken legs
And all I could do was
Sit and watch the
Mercury falling
Falling for you

We know who you are, yes you
We know who you are, yes you
We’re the little men rising
Rising up on you

And if we’re never going to change
Then things can only stay the same

But with eyes wide open
Sunsets call we
Mercury’s rising
Rising up on you

You know who we are yes you
You know who we are yes you
We’re the little men rising
Rising up on you
