You say you love me, ”it’s a natural fact”
Can’t turn around; no, I’m afraid of getting stabbed in the back
You say you love me but you ain’t got the time
So why is it I can’t get you off my mind?

In the game of two your heart is yours and yours alone
Never trust another with the things you call your own
If you want to know the one who’ll hurt you the most
Don’t look far, because the traitor keeps close

A crown of copper’s what I wear on my head
My heart was queen, now I made my mind the king instead
Electric body charges up where it sits
Magnetic head, you know, it drives me into fits

In a game of one you’ll always be undone
You’re your own worst nemesis and hero wrapped in one
If you want to know the one who’ll hurt you the most
Don’t look far because the traitor keeps close

Have another Underwater Dream
And you will understand
That there are forces in this world
That lead you under by the hand
