suffocate lyrics – finger eleven

talk to me, can you listen to me now?
do you understand? can you identify?
but it’s as if you seem to

make a small effort but you bend
you’re bending my mind
and you try and you try
i can see you’re trying to

suffocate and smother me
covered so i can’t breathe

(we)
when we collapse
(fall)
our weakened hands
(down)
fall together at once abandoned

(we)
they’ll force you down
(fall)
and strap you in
(down)
now we agree and understand

speak slowly, you gotta get it all out now
what are you saying?
just remember we will always be here

just in case you have been waiting, waiting
to show us something give us some sign
as if you’re gonna

suffocate, smothering
covered so you can’t breathe

(we)
when we collapse
(fall)
our weakened hands
(down)
fall together at once abandoned

(we)
they’ll force you down
(fall)
and strap you in
(down)
now we agree and understand

gently lure your submission
all the while suspicion grows, grows
so be sick of listening
senile old and staggering
naive youth pick, us up when

(we)
when we collapse
(fall)
our weakened hands
(down)
fall together at once abandoned

(we)
they’ll force you down
(fall)
and strap you in
(down)
now we agree and understand

(we)
when we collapse
(fall)
our weakened hands
(down)
fall together at once abandoned

(we)
they’ll force you down
(fall)
and strap you in
(down)
now we agree and understand
now we agree and understand
