The Enemy is You Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You got your head turned 'round, walking upside down
Through the sunken dream, through the crushing crowd
You don't know what it means, 'cause you're a broken machine
You won't lisp it out, you're dressing up your man

It's all second hand, it's all hindsight
You don't understand, it's just an empty scene
It's still an empty scheme, you wanna block it out
But I know what I'm gonna do with this big doubt

I'm gonna make it go away, when you go walking out in
The rose city without a fucking clue
With an attitude, knowing what you need
What you will not do the enemy is you

You beat up on yourself, 'cause there ain't no one else
Who feels quite as good to put straight through hell
You know yourself well, you know what you're about
Just wanna block it out well, I know what

I'm gonna do with this big doubt
I'm gonna hide my face away block it out
Well, I know what I'm gonna do with this big doubt
I'm gonna make it go away
