Reset, reset, architect
Tension, tension, tension head
Amnesia, amnesia, panic set
Tension, tension, tension head

I can't try and tell you what’s happening
If you won't get a handle on the state you're in
Pushing back the walls to see the roof cave in
Holding your rope and its tightening
Don't know where I am where I am
And I can’t tell you that I’m only looking for something
Don't fancy your odds or your chances
But I'll still, take on all, bets

Question, question, time to end
Tension, Tension, Tension Head
Loathing, goading an ascent
Tension, Tension, Tension Head
Can't say you haven't heard the message yet
That you can't take control; it’s all been outbred
So it’s not the cage that starts to tilt
It’s the night and the day; they only spin spin spin
Is there a way to survive in a world that's selling its barricades
Can’t breathe, can’t medicate
As the rope tightens, no joke
Force, fall away
Don't play their games

Can you survive as the panic sets?
I don't like your chances but I'm taking bets
Draw out last stakes
No compromise and no relent
It’s the only deal you have that keeps your head
Sign the line sign the line for a life reset
Then we'll go on down and be your architect

Come get undone with me
Come get undone with me
Come get undone with me
Before you'll only want to beg and plead
