Cause and Effect


What's been happening outside, because

I've been here so long my skin's looking tired

maybe it's time to get some air

there's got to be something happening somewhere

I could buy the tickets, we could catch a show

i'll take you where you want to go

why do you still hang round

when you've let all of your good friends down

it's no good telling me that you've tried

you've got to flood me like the highest tide

this is not an option, this is not a game, no

I don't go far enough away

everyone is disguised

from the clothes they're wearing to that look in their eyes

and some of them do it well

you might be one of them because I just can't tell

when you look in the mirror what is it you see

I don't go far enough away
