A PERFECT CIRCLE lyrics - A Stranger

"A Stranger"
(Billy Howerdel / Maynard James Keenan)

Cast the calming apple
Up and over satellites
To draw out the timid wild one
To convince you it's alright

And I listen for the whisper
Of your sweet insanity
While I formulate denials
Of your effect on me

You're a stranger, so
What do I care?
You vanish today
Not the first time I hear
All the lies

What am I to do with all this silence?

Shy away, shy away, phantom
Run away, terrified child
Won't you move away, you fucking tornado?
I'm better off without you tearing my will down
