i got a message for you when it’s quiet
i got the lightning and fog in my throat
i got a box with the key locked inside it
genius plan in a idiot code

my friend, i doubt if you can hear me
i said hands out if you can hear me

is my signal blocked?
i’m a war machine
under quarantine
i’m shell shocked
is my signal clear?
i’m a friend in need
but i’m hard to read
so draw near

i got a world in my head and it’s empty
i got the chance to be God and alone
why do you think that the power should tempt me
what do i want with a mind of my own?

if this world ends the way i’ve planned it
my friend i want you on my planet

if my signal clips
i’m a friend in need
i’m a mouth to feed
read my lips
if my signal dies
then unless you’ve guessed
it’s an S O S
it’s goodbye

now that things are quiet
i fall silent
i deny that
i’ve cried out in fear

you think we’re alone here
hold the phone here
to my wrong ear
i will strain to hear

now you are a doctor
now a helicopter
now you are a condor
hovering in clouds

now i am a patient
now i am a spaceship
monster in the basement
if you’re gonna say shit, say it loud

i get a desperate hope when you draw near
i get a sight of the sound and the strong
i have been trying to tell you this all year
but there is a demon that sits on my tongue
and when it comes i can feel it returning
it’s in my lungs and i’m screaming it out
and when i wake up and it’s three in the morning
Who will i tell what the dream was about?
