A mask is easily placed
On a betrayed and broken face
A disguise to hide the past
When you mapped out my skin and made the memories last
Some things are never erased
And I have run when I've been chased
By recollections of you and me falling off our homemade castle

And even when I'm walking straight I always end up in a perfect circle
Oh I try but I just can't wait
To break out of this perfect circle
'Cos giving into old temptation
Is like that common twitch
Oh the silly stupid realisation
The more you scratch the more you itch

Why am I fighting, what's it for
Must let my mask drop to the floor
My scars I shouldn't hide from the people who are on my side
Rolling up my sleeves to fight against
All the things I locked up and all the things I fenced
But it's time to let it out so we can build a brand new castle

And even when I'm walking straight I always end up in a perfect circle
Oh I try but I just can't wait
To break out of this perfect circle
'Cos giving into old temptation
Is like that common twitch
Oh the silly stupid realisation
The more you scratch the more you itch

And even when I'm walking straight I always end up in a perfect circle
Oh I try but I just can't wait
To break out of this perfect circle
'Cos giving into old temptation
Is like that common twitch
Oh the silly stupid realisation
The more you scratch the more you itch

The more you scratch the more you itch
