And so the knife comes down, another curtain falls
And no one hears the sound, and no one takes the call
From me and my anxiety, locked up in these four walls

I come to you, now I'm alone with my defenses down
I tell you everything I need, I get down on the ground
I always know that when I go, that I'll be back again

Shocked straight, doctor, can you get my medicine?
Shocked straight, doctor, can't you see the shape I'm in?
Shocked straight, doctor, when you gonna let me in?

If I could listen to my mind, and keep the world outside my door
But time has opened up my eyes and shown me somethin' more
Now, all I want is to be free, and get up off the floor

Why can't you look into my heart? Why can't you ever let me know?
You're always takin' me apart, you're never lettin' go
There's always somethin' on your mind, this ain't reality

Shocked straight, doctor, can you get my medicine?
Shocked straight, doctor, can't you see the shape I'm in?
Shocked straight, doctor, when you gonna let me in?

Why you be so hard?
Why you be so hard?
Why you be so hard?

I know it's gonna take some time for me to straighten out my head
To say what's on my mind, to hear those words I said
And while I'm tryin' to learn to feel, you keep on tellin' me

Shocked straight, doctor, can you get my medicine?
Shocked straight, doctor, can't you see the shape I'm in?
Shocked straight, doctor, when you gonna let me in?
Shocked straight, shocked straight
Shocked straight, when you gonna let me in?

Why you be so hard?
Why you be so hard?
Why you be so hard?
