[Hook]
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me

[Verse 1]
Quick thought, left or right
Could it be a strong case of fight or flight?
We'd never know you're slightly overworked
And self-conscious
Sweating beads of doubt
This can't be right
Whisperin' out, "This can't be right, right?"
This ain't like a DVD
Pretty from aftershave
I'm scared life will leave me
Strung out and needin' love
Surely I'm as overcome but brimstone won't come to [lungs?]

[Refrain 1]
But I ain't done
Surely I ain't done
Oh, nah, nah
I ain't done
Oh, but my mind's on the run

[Pre-Hook 1]
Caused by your never-ending dream
And it ain't what it seems
It ain't what it seems
You know what I mean?

[Hook]
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me

[Verse 2]
Monster on the bed, regurgitating out
There's a monkey on my back
Pulling it like puppet strings, slow to react
Tell me what's the matter, love
Life's drive slow-mo
Front crawl in speedos
Fight against the rising tide
Breathe deep, never stop clawing at the light
Clinging on to what we got

[Refrain 2]
But I ain't done
I ain't done
Surely, surely, surely we must overcome
But my mind's on the run
My mind's on the run

[Pre-Hook 2]
Caused by your never-ending dream
Nah, and it ain't what it seems
It ain't what it seems
Baby girl, it ain't what it seems
Nah, it ain't what it seems

[Interlude]
Too cruel to be mean
To be cruel
Don't wanna lose ya
Uh

[Hook]
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
