It took a long time coming that big over the shoulder statement
But when it came it flowed easy as poison
Taken in extreme despair, taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair, taken in extreme despair

Remember to write often in case you have something to tell
But please don't mention the unexpected guest
Staring into empty eyes, staring into empty eyes
Staring into empty eyes, staring into empty eyes

A long lost confidence and pride
Come ringing back, come ringing back
To have the shadow back again
And happiness that feels like pain

And then you left us to see if you could find it
And when you came back it flowed easy as poison
Taken in extreme despair, taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair, taken in extreme despair

A long lost confidence and pride
Come ringing back, come ringing back
To have the shadow back again
And happiness that feels like pain

And happiness that feels like pain
And happiness that feels like pain
Happiness that feels like pain
Happiness that feels like pain
