lyrics

There's a wall that you can't see over
There's a room but you can't get in
And of course I hold the key
Don't look to me
To save the day later

All this to say that I'm letting you know
I'm some place you don't wanna go
Before you can say it can't be that bad
Don't wanna make you sad
But you don't have a clue

You wanna be my friend
Saying I already fell for you
There's no way in the world this ends well for you
So when the story ends
You can't say I didn't tell you
You can't say I didn't make it clear
This is what I call
A healthy fear

To tell the truth I'd say I helped you
But I don't know if I'm seeing things wrong
Guess I'd rather be safe than sorry
Your happiness is all I seek
So I'm calling a stop

You wanna be my friend
Saying I already fell for you
There's no way in the world this ends well for you
So when the story ends
You can't say I didn't tell you
You can't say I didn't make it clear
You can't say I didn't make it clear

This is what I call

(I can promise you you won't survive)

(There's a pattern I can see coming
You wanna be running
By the time that it gets here)
