I'm so excited
That you decided
To tell me where it is
I'm going wrong
Feel so foolish
I hadn't seen it
And there you where
You knew it all along
You're such a joker
So mediocre
You'll go a long way for sure
I can't stand these confines anymore

Break down the mirror
Feel your heart inside
Free now and running with the tide
Far from the city
And the doubts that chain
Heading out into the night again
Move your mouse and
Buy a house or
Sell a thousand kilograms of steam
Be realistic
See the statistics
Yeah but they make me want to scream
Lining up with
Idiots and middlemen
To get one foot inside the door
I can't stand these confines anymore

Break down the mirror
Feel your heart inside
Free now and running with the tide
Far from the city
And the thoughts that chain
Heading out into the night again

Calculate me
Underrate me
Before I've had a chance
To catch a breath
Careful now
The way you're going
Danger you might
Smile someone to death
I've never known someone
To care so little
And yet be so sincere
I can't stand these confines in here
Break down the mirror
Feel your heart inside
Free now and running with the tide
Far from the city
And the thoughts that chain
Heading out into the night again

Up in the office
They're talking profits
I don't know what it is
But I don't feel safe
That human hope
Can still survive
Right now it seems
A miracle of faith
We like our murder
Nice and blurred
Don't want to look no further
Than the skin
I can't stand these confines that I'm in

Break down the mirror
Feel your heart inside
Free now and running with the tide
Far from the city
And the doubts that chain
Heading out into the night again
