I can't hide from you in my sleep
I might've buried you a bit too deep
And now I carry you around
You're my shadow underground

And you are the name of my suffering
I call it out sometimes just to know where I've been
And when I'm surrounded I might whisper it
Just a reminder to never quit

I know the visions are not real
But I still like the way they feel

If I keep on going, never stop to think
I'll hover forever right on the brink
It's when I slow down that I start to fall
Back to the place where I hid it all

Lost in a crowd, I look around
Even though I know you won't be found

What do you want from me?
'Cause you're, you're botherin'
You're botherin' me
You trouble me

Now every morning when you fade
I tie up the heartstrings that you frayed
I gather the stones inside my gut
Manage to walk if not to strut
And maybe I'll see you again
Outside the dream, inside the end

What do you want from me?
'Cause you're, you're botherin'
Oh, you're botherin' me
And I cannot hide from you in my sleep
No, you're, you're worryin'
You're worryin' my dreams
You, you
