You rise up in a whisper in the back of my mind
You lay in wait there to burglarize
Growing strong for I give residence
And I know you're wrong but lose my common sense

Fruitless compromise
I found the key to your demise
I can make you disappear
If I turn away and close my eyes

Wanting much more
But aiming for less
We always acquiesce
To what feels best
And though it won't quench you
You're a man obsessed
This forfeit of reason
This sin for a season
Grant me the strength to pass this test
