I'm trying to make connection with every little thought hung on your lips I'm trying to get the picture before my consciousness rips But your mouth keeps moving, with stupid excuses spilling out Like a thief who's caught red-handed Deflecting blame and casting doubt Casting doubt. Now I think I need interpretation or this situation analyzed By someone who is better looking, who can go on camera in a tie I'm dying for suggestion there's an end to this eternal bout Like an old man drowning in denial Deflecting blame and casting doubt Casting doubt Everybody's gotta pick someone to love Everybody's gotta pick someone to hate Everybody's gotta pick someone to love Everybody's gotta pick someone to hate So who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who... do you love? And now our mundane moments have reached a violent fever pitch Turn my life into a game show, take my pride and make me rich Pump me with a thousand volts, feed me lies, tell me to shout Oh, I know that I could be the loudest Deflecting blame and casting doubt Oh, casting doubt Everybody's gotta pick someone to love Everybody's gotta pick someone to hate Everybody's gotta pick someone to love Everybody's gotta pick someone to hate Everybody's gotta pick someone to love Everybody's gotta pick someone to hate Everybody's gotta pick someone to love Everybody's gotta pick someone. So who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Oh, who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who... do you love?

You count your blessings But they're never enough You're trying to look cool You're trying to be tough And all your enemies, You're gonna make em pay And you'll tear down everyone close to you Cause you didn't need them anyway And you're tired of guessing You want an answer straight up Because your days are feeling meaningless And the night's become too much Yeah, the night's become too much So you stare at the skyline And wonder if it'll rain You feel the hammers of the road crews The distant whistle of the trains And their vibrations They resonate in your bones And the headaches have become comforting Cause you know you're not out here alone And you're tired of guessing You want an answer straight up Because your days are feeling meaningless And the night's become too much Yeah, the night's become too much So you learn the steps Of the song and dance And you know you would own the spotlight If you could only get the chance But you know the deal You know what you lack So dream of getting out of here And never ever coming back And you're tired of guessing You want an answer straight up Because your days are feeling meaningless Yeah, your days are feeling meaningless And you're tired of guessing You want an answer straight up Because your days are feeling meaningless And the night's become too much Yeah, the night's become too much Yeah, the night's become too much
