Ninth Inch

Liar
Oh yes
Oh yes, liar they'd call me
If they could see my thoughts

Broken dreams, they manifest
Desire to control the rest
Your little liar controls the way you move

Inches over the line
That separates sane from not
Inches over the line
That keeps you safe

Oh yes
Nothing's turning out the way I planned
Oh yes
The dreams that broke all manifest
Complete control is what I lust

Inches over the line
That was drawn to keep you safe
Inches over the line
That was drawn to keep it in

Nothing can stop me now
I doubt you'd want to anyway
Nothing can stop me now
And that's just the way you like it

Nothing can stop me now
I doubt you'd want to anyway
Nothing can stop me now
And that's just the way I like it
