UNDER LOCK AND KEY

guided by the voices in your head
you run away
and I don't mind, I don't mind

it happens much too often than I'd ever
care to say
but I'll be fine, I'll be fine

but if you think not knowing makes it easier on me
you'd swallow your convicitions, give up the driver's seat
it's a question of volition
that you keep
under lock and key, under lock and key

slip into submission and I take
the easy way
never cross the line, never cross the line

days and days of silence and I wait for
you to say
that you're still mine, you're still mine

if you think not knowing makes it easier on me
you'd wallow in contrition, fill these empty sheets
it's a question of volition
that you keep
under lock and key, under lock and key

if you keep it like a secret
it's my heart you'll break
every promise lost when you
hesitate
when you hesitate

and if you think not knowing makes it easier on me
you'd forsake this indecision, reach for clarity
it's a question of volition
that you keep
under lock and key, under lock and key
