lyrics

Oceanic - A Scanner Darkly
-------------------------------------

Take me down, take me down into the underground
Take me down, almost forgot the world goes round and round
Inside this maze… Am I myself or am I just a phase?
And so, I will go, I will let myself be changed

Now everybody knows
The mind like water flows,
Warm sand between my toes
That's just the way it goes
A star in heaven glows…
Hold me close

How many times can a man look deep into his soul?
Can he even hear it in this cloud of electronic noise?
Watching! Waiting…watching!
Studying us when we eat, when we sleep, when we go about our lives
When we drift, losing grip, trapped like mice inside our minds

What do you see, what do you see,
What do you see when you look inside me?
What do you see, oh, what do you see,
What do you see, a scanner darkly?

Silently, at night the scanner's watching over me
Society? I'll never trade my freedom for security!
And naturally, the enemy is people like you and me

Oh well, oh well
Throw vengeance down the well
If calculations fail
I'll never leave this hell
Oh well,
Live life behind the veil
And always will…
Love you still

Tell me things, tell and make me ripe with information
I will hold it in as long as I can hide the lack of reverberation
But it keeps
Watching! Waiting! Watching!
Studying us when we eat when we sleep when we think we got it right
When we sit, darkly sit, in the ever-watchful night…

What do you see, what do you see,
What do you see when you look inside me?
What do you see, oh, what do you see,
What do you see, a scanner darkly?
