I was staring out the window
The whole time he was talking to me
It was a filthy pane of glass
I couldn't get a clear view
As he went on and on
It wasn't the outside world I could see
Just the filthy pane that I was looking through
So I had to break the window
It just had to be
Better that I break the window
Than him or her or me
I was never focused on just one thing
My eyes got fixed when my mind got soft
It may look like I'm concentrated
On a very clear view
But I'm as good as asleep
I bet you didn't know
It takes a lot of it away if you do
So I had to break the window
It just had to be
Better that I break the window
Than him or her or me
I had to break the window
It just had to be
Better that I break the window
Than him or her or me
Because the fact being that
Whatever's in front of me is coverin' my view
So I can't see what I'm seeing in fact
I only see what I'm looking through
I had to break the window
It just had to be
It was in my way
Better that I break the window
Than forget what I had to say
So again I've done the right thing
I was never worried about that
The answer's always been in clear view
But even when the window's clean
I still can't see for the fact
That when it's clean it's so clear
I can't tell what I'm looking through
So I had to break the window
It just had to be
Better that I break the window
Than him or her or me
I had to break the window
It just had to be
It was in my way
Better that I break the window
Then forget what I had to say
I had to break the window
It was in my way
Better that I break the window
Then forget what I had to say
Or miss what I should see
Or break him or her or me
