I'm in trouble baby
I'm out every night
Call you to save me
Escape my mind
When it gets dark
I think of you
When it gets dark
I'm in trouble baby
Can't help myself
Its you I want
You and no one else

In my diseased mind
This is fine
And you are only
Out of sight
But when it gets dark
I look for you
When it gets dark
I know you're gone
And so I ride a thoroughbred
A flying machine
I made
i made
i made them
With things I found under my bed
I'm in trouble baby
I can't help myself
Its you I want
You and no one else
No stars in this bruised sky
No moon to speak of
There's no number for this hour
Number for this hour
Race the light
Race the light
This isn't violence
This isn't violence
Its me
Oh please
I wish i was like them
i wish i was like them
I wish I was like them
But its your name in this strange house
in this strange house
In this strange house
Its me
This isn't violence
This isn't violence
This isn't violence
