lyrics

A secret that I'll let you hear
Of our descendants, most of us fear
Being alone in solitude
After all the love they showered you

Isn't that rough?
Isn't that rough?

Uninteresting thoughts
You should step off
My interesting thoughts
More ideas are growing here

Letting them in
Enough of it
Our children are taught for safety sake
No one should stand behind their door
They already heard the hollow floor

Isn't that rough?
Isn't that rough?

Routines are easy
Methods get results
And no one chases
Without an experience
Those arrows may go straight through
To keep my mind off of it
Ooh
But not since I had to

Uninteresting thoughts
You should step off
My interesting thoughts
More ideas are growing here
Hijacking your thought
Rope as a knot
What history taught
Big ideas are rotting there
Can't bury the link
Watch what you think
This outcome I fear
Tumbling refrain is near

A lovely divide, a ricochet
I'm already full of giving way
I run for my life, I'll never fall
I'll protect the path covering souls
A lovely divide, a ricochet
I'm already full of giving way
I run for my life, I'll never fall
I'll protect the path covering souls

Isn't that rough?
Isn't that rough?
Isn't that rough?
Isn't that rough?
