Innocence, that magic day. you've told yourself, you've changed your ways. you've joined society an end to your debauchery. who knew what's to come. pleasure leads to pain. there's a new one in your life. now the rules change. chorus: cold sweat, runny eyes. short of breath, barely alive. drag yourself to the very brink. sleep deprived, still can't think. and now it's clear just what you've scored. many years in hell is your reward. and your house, a prison wing. and you're the warden for that evil thing. to make your escape there's nothing you won't pay. what was once an arduous task seems more like a holiday. (chorus) in no time at all look how much you've aged. now you look at the outside world fading in the haze. (chorus) cold sweat, runny eyes. short of breath, barely alive. day & night, melt in time. torture's face is a baby's cry. baby's cry, baby's cry.
