   Who      was        around when the     world was falling  down?
   Who      turned    away?       Couldn't bother to be       around this now
   Who      walked    away        when the game wasn't fun to play?

   Some days fine, others out of my mind  And the curse I curse is the worst it gets
I hold it inside as you sleep, as you hide from The mess that you made of your life
   Some days fine, others out of my mind And the curse I curse is the worst it gets
  (Who was around when you were hungry?)
I hold it inside as you sleep, as you hide from The mess that you made of your life
  (Who eased the pain of all your sadness?)

Maybe in time, these indelible lines will Fade like the hopes and the fears you denied
These feelings are gone, they've been buried along
                      With the rest of the mess that you made in your chest of drawers
Maybe in time, these indelible lines will Fade like the hopes and the fears you denied
  (Who was around when you were hungry?)
These feelings are gone, they've been buried along
                      With the rest of the mess that you made in your chest of drawers
  (Who eased the pain of all your sadness?)
