Held Up Again

Why would you celebrate tonight?

When you can't advocate tomorrow?

I'm only turning out the light on us

Cause I can't overlook the sorrow

 

CHORUS:

It's too late, I'm held up again

I can't run there's smoke in my eyes

If I'm blind... I'm numb and immune to the lies

 

Oh no.. I found love but then

I've learned to bolt in inside

Am I man, or automaton b'neath this disguise

 

How can I fabricate real life?

                   See this through, no sacrifice

When I can't salivate or swallow?

                  Only you can say..

Your taste still burning in my mind

                  Hold me there, don"t dull

But I've made that up based on your photo

                  Oh eternal grey..

 

CHORUS: 

It's too late, I'm held up again 

I'm programmed to coast and abide  

A  dead shell... I'm numb and immune to the lies 

 

Oh no.. I found love but then 

I've learned to bolt in inside 

Am I man, or automaton b'neath this disguise?
