There's one unread message in my inbox And I'm too much of a coward to read it There was a time your words Meant everything to me, but I don't think I'm obliged to take this Ooh, it's the fear and the dread Waiting here What's been said about me this time? Every day it's the same I'm sick of losing this game I've got that digital dread, dread So throw your hate at my name And if it sticks, I'll explain You give me that digital dread, dread This right here is my soul And I'm willing to bare it Could you honestly Say the same about yourself? It's not like I'm ever gonna give up My obsession Go take your criticism somewhere else Ooh, it's a drain on my mind You You're a pain The way you start with all the same lines My openness Is not weakness But I confess It leaves me restless Yes I can't work with your voice In my head Always twisting the things That I said Find somebody to bother instead Had enough of that digital dread Every day it's the same I think I just lost the game... Cmon, c'mon, c'mon give it to me now That digital dread Cmon, c'mon, c'mon Gonna paint a big, fat 'X' on my head You give me that digital dread, dread

Unfamiliar sounds Feel my heart beating faster Watching all the lights Casting shapes on the naked plaster Not so long ago I was there in the balcony But this time there's a crowd And they're waiting for you and me Sound check Dress rehearsal Panic stations Role reversal Countdown Intro sequence Spot light Sub bass frequency This shining stage This golden age Will I ever know What it's like trading places? Watching all the lights Casting shapes on their smiling faces Had so many dreams From my seat in the balcony But this time there's a crowd And their screaming for you and me You and me For you and me You and me Always to be Beyond my reach Get me Out of here Lift me Through the limit Always waiting alone Always waiting here

And suddenly I'm dreaming again Oh... Got digital delight on my brain Oh... What do you wanna lift me up What do you wanna lift me up So high for It's to die for Why do you gotta lift me up Why do you gotta lift me up Just to drop me? I can't stop me, no You leave my senses inundated Oh... Hey, sanity is overrated Oh... What do you wanna lift me up What do you wanna lift me up So high for It's to die for Why do you gotta lift me up Why do you gotta lift me up Just to drop me? Go 'head, boy Drop me What do you wanna lift me up What do you wanna lift me up So high for It's to die for Why do you gotta lift me up Why do you gotta let me drop Just to catch me, it's How you match me

Don't pretend you're protecting me From the bitter disappointment that Comes from risking anything I used to think you had my Best interests at heart, but Everything you're saying is just Your way of complaining But now and then It seems under my skin And tells me to give in They start again The cycles of the psyche Mechanics of the mind And, if you don't mind... You've tried my patience, dear And this time I say No! I opened up my eyes To find my waking song I'm sure You think you are perfecting me With your candid observations Unsolicited opinions Accepting you would be rejecting freedom Can you sense my trepidation? You don't mask your irritation I need a friend Somebody I could trust To pull me when I'm pushed I'll start again I need to get this right And if it keeps me up all night I really don't mind
