Check out the lyrics.

PARANOIA

The Paranoia sinking in
From another bad line of questioning
Feed the fiery walls we build around
There’s not enough water to put them out

Breath Now
Breath Out

From the ashes rise a hollow friend
Which lets you know that there is an end
What made you think that you were safe
From the billowing smoke of this resting place

Breath Now
Breath Out

Remember we cried ourselves to sleep
We prayed we prayed our souls to keep
And I’m sorry now that I can’t stay
So I’ll close my eyes until goes away

Breath Now
Breath Out
Breath Now
Breath Out

The Paranoia sinking in
From another bad line of questioning
Feed the fiery walls we build around
There’s not enough water to put them out
