The Enemy Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

So far dishonest as the day is long
I'm sorry so I'll go now
But I love you, so it won't be long
And the specters in the masonry
Remind us of the things that might have been

Isn't it time you washed your face?
It looks like a burnt out fireplace
And I am awash with memories
And worrying complexities

But in time
(In time)
You'll find it very scary
It's hard to live respectfully

The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head
The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head

Everyone's still all over the place
And not to humble to embrace
And oh my gosh the memories
But your arrogance perplexes me

Now this time
(This time)
I shouldn't be so lazy
Just try to live respectfully

The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head
The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head

So are you giving it a shot now?
And it all came back
And you did a little turn now

Well, they didn't like that
Are you going to give it up for?
(And the specters in the masonry
Remind us of the things that might have been)

All you need's a gentle heart
To see you through endless dark
All you need's a gentle heart
To see you through endless dark

The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head
The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head

The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head
The enemy as I know it
Is right inside my head
