Expected a change
That’s what I need
Pick it up, sleight of hand
Why tell ‘em my name?

Maybe I’ll burn this one down
Eviscerated indiscretions
Maybe it’s just denial
Fain to hide a smile

Oh why?
Oh right

Pushed ’til I break
Now we’re the same
Raise me up
I’m your servant
Raise me up
I’m your servant

Oh right
Oh why?

Right or wrong day
Talking that way
Chew me up
And spit me out an allegory

Oh why?
Oh right
Oh why?
