Exhale inhale take a hit and smile
Call me in awhile
Because I want to know if you are alright
Plant a seed grow a weed
You don’t care breathe this air
You keep my up at night

Teddy bear on the wall
Who will catch you when you fall?
I’m here at night if you wish to call me
Tell me why do you want to live this way?

Cry out loud in a mushroom cloud
Is your crying a cry for help
Or do you wish to be left alone?
It’s hard to hate but it’s harder to love
You are everything I don’t approve of
And for some reason I still care.

Does this make you feel hypnotized?
All these flashes before your eyes?
Why do you wear a disguise?
Tell me why do you want to live this way?

I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know you anymore
You used to never have to be high
You used to create your own skies

You’re everything I hate you’re everything I love
You’re the hawk that killed the dove
Tell me why do you want to live this way?
