You – You know all my ins and outs
You – Know what it takes to make me shout
You – Know I live inside my head
You – Know how to send me to the red

Oh, it’s so effortless
The way you turn the screws ’til I confess
That my sins are all I am and nothing else

You – You hold my head beneath the waves
You – You tell me that I cannot be saved
You – You lock the door and leave me be
You – You tell me no one’s really free


You – You know the story of my days
You – You know that hell is mine to pay
You – Hold your hand out just like a friend
But you – You'll keep that grip until the end


You and I,
we both know where this ends
