With better competition
Got a savior, says he's gonna save who
Come together people
Tell me what new habit can we choose?

We're thinking and we're trying
Yeah, we're truthful then we're lying, I'm sure you know
We're quiet then we're loud
Yeah, we're hopeful then we doubt, I'm sure it shows

Do we get a second chance to these answers that we lack?
Or are we guided by the hope of some brilliant flash?
Tell me, tell me how long will this sobriety last?

Who's understanding? Yeah, understanding
To the ways, the means of our own self
We got the sex, the dreams with nothing else

Who's understanding? Yeah, understanding
To the right, the wrong of our own self
We got the look, the pose with nothing else

Dancing to the rhythm
From the knowledge of a hard drive spin
Looking for the formula
That always will save us in the end

We're creeping and we're crawling
Yeah, we're pushing, then we're stalling, have you felt?
We're open, then we're closing
Yeah, we're hiding, then we're showing, can you tell?

Do we get a second chance to these answers that we lack?
Or are we guided by the hope of some brilliant flash?
Tell me, tell me how long will this sobriety last?

Who's understanding? Yeah, understanding
To the ways the means of our own self
We got the sex, the dreams with nothing else

Who's understanding? Yeah, understanding
To the right, the wrong of our own self
We got the look, the pose with nothing else

Do we understand?
Do we understand all the words we've said?
