Thick Lenses

Board up the glass, see no sunlight, trade windows for sills
Then you start talking nonsense, just shut up, I hand you the pills
But where’d you go
Was it me
That made you leave
Or do you always come back round this time o year

All our lives we’re lookin at the world through a couple o thick lenses
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it
I think I’ll explode
Somewhere else is a paradise where all thoughts are clear,
They’re clear
The beginnings and the ends make sense
Make sense, but I don’t know how
Someone else come and get me out o this mess that I put myself in
Someone else, someone else
I can’t do it by myself

What do you think, when I get there will I be the one
Or will you open the box up and send it back empty
Gone for days
(We can help you)
You left me on all night
(Pulverize your shame)
Can’t be two ways
(Call the number)
When you leave the lens dangling just out o my sight
(Before you’re crawling out the door)

All our lives we’re lookin at the world through a couple o thick lenses
I can’t bear it, I can’t bear it
I think I’ll disappear
Somewhere else is a paradise where all thoughts are clear,
They’re clear
The beginnings and the ends make sense
They make sense, but I don’t know how
Someone else come and get me out o this mess that I put myself in
Someone else, someone else
I can’t do it all by myself
