Theoretically speaking, there is a way to turn you down, to be stoical, disengaged, and unaffected by your touch

 

But I don’t like losing out, or feeling less than alive

And the numbness would only spread if I pushed you out of mind

 

It’s unhealthy, this obsession, and I know it’s gonna hurt

When you shred me all apart, then the fault will be mine own

 

You’re so persuasive with your words, and I’m compelled into your zone

You’ve got me dangling from a hook and choking, desperate for a breath

 

Theoretically speaking, there is a way to turn you off, to turn you down, turn you away, and let myself be free again

 

But in theory—I am cold, and I don’t feel half as much

 

And in theory—I can’t live, without everything you give
