(this place stinks, i’m outta here)

this conflict cannot be solved
this conflict is getting old
love me or leave me
don’t try to deceive me
love me don’t judge me
i’ll end it!

pa di da da

this conflict tattered and worn
this conflict leaves me forlorn
just love me or leave me
don’t try to deceive me
love me don’t judge me
i’ll end it!

this conflict, this conflict
this conflict cannot be solved

there was a time, you know
i thought i happened in your life
that was too bold, i guess
self-overrated
i took your lust for life
for something that i granted you:
passion aroused by me
each time we made it
you were the seismograph
on which i measured my effect
my eyes were fixed on you
self-captivated
you were my solid ground
i thought, the soil for me to shake
i was the earth-quake man
for whom you waited


i glorified my part
so much, I mixed it up with me
i was sucked out by it
and yet inflated
now i’m the one to shake
i see what quicksand i am in
i vanished from your world
i faded
you’re moving on, i see
but now completely by yourself
you never needed me
and how i hate it
as if i never happened in your life
that’s how the land lies
as if i never happened in your life
that’s how the land lies
i know i never happened in your life
that’s how your land lies

you and your dirty lies
this conflict

your conflict for alibis
this conflict, this conflict
cannot be solved
