[Verse 1] You said it yourself. To convalesce from empty sorrow, someone had to squeal.
To dive to the bottom.
You said, I know, I know it's not your fault.
Like wire around your bones you would never numb.
I take it I'm a mad man, but I would never squeal.
I never said it was no good.

[Chorus] The innocent will rest in the peace they've been given.
Paintings will sleep on the floor.
Build walls of lonely dreams as beauty fades.
I can't take this anymore.

[Verse 2] Lock yourself up like a bird in a cage.
You sing but no one ever listens.
How much were you paid to sell out the mad man?
Like a scientist or a master of design.
I knew exactly what I was doing.
And I heard of your disease, and shots of penicillin barely kept you alive.

[Chorus] The innocent will rest in the peace they've been given.
Paintings will sleep on the floor.
Build walls of lonely dreams as beauty fades.
I can't take this anymore.

I am the clone. I dwell in silence. (x4)

[Chorus] (x2) The innocent will rest in the peace they've been given.
Paintings will sleep on the floor.
Build walls of lonely dreams as beauty fades.
I can't take this anymore.
