switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off switch on switch off
switch on erratic behavior
switch off the smile on his face
it was an honest mistake
swivel chairs shaking hands
why would she leave?
i can’t help thinking this is on me
empty headed for a hemorrhage
it’s nothing less than instinct
a special way to deal with things
switch off switch on switch off
creativity, it waits for me
there’s no way this is healthy

we have only one night alone
you should come to my place
i need some help with this primal feeling
i’ll be your charity case

you can be my surrogate love
i’m just a lightbulb, simple
my main weapon is idleness
and you just cannot help me through this
a drum machine will tell you when i’m dead
the siren in my head is all that’s screaming
switch on the wandering mind
switch off creativity
how can i create when this is on me?

where did you go? what did i do wrong?
i think i need some help
how could i just let this slip away?
i must’ve drugged myself
tension pulling at my drowning cornea
i can’t even sit straight
where has everyone around me gone?
i might be dying
i think i’m dying
