Tick tock, sweat, switch up the fingers
The silly integer's always on vacation
I didn't think it was a bad idea
I just couldn't figure out how to make the phone work

That said I was no different from the others
Except that this isn't how math was done and everything
Seems to repeat in a cyclical pattern
I hum myself to misery and wish these words against my pillow

I will try not to lose control

Hysteria, hysteria, it's happening again
I fall apart, I fall apart, I'm back where I began
If it were anybody else but you I would not be afraid
A total calamity, the choices I have made

Rip scripts, slash, burn up the courage
That tiny yellow cat always on vacation
I wish I hadn't been so damn obscure
I just try too hard for the perfect word score

Can't stand and I'm cruising up the covers
A little chain and people restless like an effigy
Damn, your camera and your lack of emotion
I swing my blades at everyone, whack their heads and run for cover

Hysteria, hysteria, it's happening again
I fall apart, I fall apart, I'm back where I began
If it were anybody else but you I would not be afraid
A total calamity, the choices I have made

Come help me figure it out
Come help me get it right this time around
If you can figure it out then you can help me loosen up
And get me off the ground

Hysteria, hysteria, it's happening again
I fall apart, I fall apart, I'm back where I began
If it were anybody else but you I would not be afraid
A total calamity, the choices I have made
A total calamity, the choices I have made
A total calamity, the choices I have made
