lyrics

[ Intro ]

There’s a hill with a house built at its peak
It’s filled with the weak and incredibly meek
To them the truth isn’t something they seek
Its what they run from every day of the week
And when they speak it’s in the language of deceit
Their feet walk in circles, they’re cursed to repeat
Freaks, geeks and tweakers
Sitting amongst stolen stereo speakers

[ Verse 1 ]

Hello, my name is Craig and the world is out to get me
Everyone I haven’t met yet is just another hidden enemy stealing my energy
And the voices in my head keep telling me to commit felony
But I keep telling myself I’m not crazy
No, I don’t need anyone to save me
But lately I’ve been wondering why you all hate me
Maybe in the land of the blind only those who’ve lost their minds can see
I bet you can’t find me

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Try seeing through these eyes, this disguise
There’s more to it revise, take the time realise
Less fortunate lives

[ Verse 2 ]

In a room steeped in a gloom so deep
You can’t tell if it’s day or night
Trevor lurks in his lair, hunched in his chair
Illuminated by digital light
Despite a mind like a diamond he’s frightened of the world outside
His ability to comprehend...
He knows he can’t survive
If he can’t depend on his technological friends

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Try seeing through these eyes, this disguise
There’s more to it revise, take the time realise
Less fortunate lives

[ Bridge ]

There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go
There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go (x2)

[ Verse 3 ]

Got a fear I can’t quite define and it’s trapped in the back of a crack addict mind
Track lines, snake down my arm
Wind their way through the marks of self harm and pharmaceutical abuse
Just another of my vigorous pursuits
No excuses here, I’m seeing things clear
And the voices Craig hears tell me: “there’s nothing to fear my dear, nothing to fear.”

[ Chorus (x2) ]

Try seeing through these eyes, this disguise
There’s more to it revise, take the time realise
Less fortunate lives

[ Verse 4 ]

This is Channel Bevan News reporting for all of yous
Who can’t be here at the scene of another house of broken dreams
The Council is trying to take it back
From a group of no-hope teens who slipped through the cracks
The facts that we know, they refuse to go
But they’ve made no demands won’t negotiate with the man
We understand this, they want us to cease and desist,
Their resistance stems from a wish to exist.

[ Bridge (x2)]

There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go
There’s a darkness in my head, it won’t give in, it won’t let go
