lyrics

this crazy’s creeping in
its wrapping slowly limb by limb
string so thin its diggin diggin diggin in
i can’t remember ever wanting just to disappear
oh my puppeteer

it’s got me bending at the knees
dancing in circles
359 degrees of second chances
i'm pulling harder at the strings
oh how high they go

i don’t know i don’t know
if im losing control losing or letting go, letting go

it’s plain to see the surprise in all your eyes
imagine how i don’t recognize mine
im squinting watching the mirror
spiral into spot light

i don’t know i don’t know
if im losing control losing or letting go, letting go

feet cant find the ground, head is whipping around
it's shaking side to side saying
you don’t know, you don’t know, you don’t know

i don’t know i don’t know
if im losing control losing or letting go, letting go
