Love, just don't stare
He used to say to me
Every Sunday morning

The spider in the window
The angel in the pool
The old man takes the poison
Now the widow makes the rules

So speak, I'm right here
She used to say to me
Not a word, not a word

Judas on the ceiling
The devil in my bed
I guess Easter's never coming
So I'll just wait inside my head

Like a scream but sort of silent
Living off my nightmares

Voices repeating me
Feeling threatened?
We reflect your hopes and fears

Voices discussing me
Others steal your thoughts
They're not confined within your mind

Thought disorder dream control
Now they read my mind on the radio
But where's the Garden of Eden?

I feel elated, I feel depressed
The sex is death, death is sex
Says it right here on my crucifix

Like a scream but sort of silent
Living off my nightmares

Voices protecting me
Good behavior
Brings the Savior to His knees

Voices rejecting me
Others steal your thoughts
They're not confined to your own mind

[Incomprehensible]

This is not reality

I'm kneeling on the floor
Staring at the wall
Like the spider in the window
I wish that I could speak

Is there fantasy in refuge?
God in politicians?
Should I turn on my religion?
These demons in my head tell me to

Oh, I'm lying here in bed
Swear my skin is inside out
Just another Sunday morning

Seen my diary on the newsstand
Seems we've lost the truth to quicksand
It's a shame nobody's praying
'Cause these voices in my head
Keep saying

Love, just don't stare
Reveal the word when you're
Supposed to

Withdrawn and introverted
Infectiously perverted
Being laughed at and confused
Keeps us pleasantly amused
Enough to stay

Maybe I'm just Cassandra fleeting
Twentieth century icon bleeding
Willing to risk salvation
To escape from isolation

I'm a witness to redemption
Heard you speak but never listened
Can you rid me of my secrets?
Deliver us from darkness?

Voices repeating me
Feeling threatened
We reflect your hopes and fears

Voices discussing me
Don't expect your own Messiah
This never world which you desire
Is only in your mind
