How did you come up with a date and time?
You didn't tell me you changed your mind
How could I have been so blind?
I didn't know you changed your mind

When you made the decision to get off this ride
Did you run out of places to go and hide?
Did you know everybody would be surprised
When you made the decision to get off this ride?

When you made the decision to jump ship
Once and for all, lose your grip
Did your lots of debts to make it easier to sleep
When you made the decision to jump ship?

When did you start seeing black?
Was it too much good? You fail, you lack
Was there too much weight, riding on your back?
When did you start seeing black?

And when did you start seeing red?
Did you see me standing over your bed?
Did you hear anything I said?
When did you start seeing red?

When did you start seeing white?
Tell me, baby, what was it like?
Was it when you received your last ride?
When did you start seeing white?

Did you use the compass to get out of this place?
Did you ever hear my voice or did you see my face?
Did you finally get tired of running the race?
Did you use the compass to get out of this place?

Did you feel your act was a final truth?
The dramatic ending of a misspent youth
Did you really feel you had all the proof?
Did you feel your act was the final truth?

Was it hard to finally pull the plug?
Was it hard to receive that final hug?
Will evil triumph over love?
Is it hard to finally pull the plug?

When did you start seeing black?
Was it too much good? You fail, you lack
Was it too much weight riding on your back?
When did you start seeing black?

And when did you start seeing red?
Did you see me standing over your bed?
Did you hear anything I said?
When did you start seeing red?

When did you start seeing white?
Tell me, baby, what was it like?
Was it when you received the last ride?
When did you start seeing white?
