The World is held in a spider’s web of roads, it’s easy to go wrong
There are so many crossroads you might just stumble upon
There are voices in my head, there are strangers just waiting there
I lied when I swore that I never knew who I’d been talking to – he said
How do you want it? How do you do? How do you want it to come to you?

And so down the stairway, down the hall, past familiar blood stains on the wall
I double-crossed myself and find I’m at the open door
And what a welcome I received, arms around each other
It was hard to tell which one of us was the more pleased
How do you want it? How do you do? How do you want it to come to you?

Because if you look for me, you will find me, you will find me
And if you look for me, so you will find me, you will find me

Some do anything not to be lonely, some do anything just to stay in the game
Some build a wall around themselves and pretend that everything’s the same,
Mirror, mirror on the wall – tell me that I’m loveable
Tell me that I’m here at all…

How do you want it? How do you do? How do you want it to come to you?
Because if you look for me, you will find me, you will find me
And if you look for me, so you will find me, you will find me

They took me down to the Tree of Knowledge and said that I must resist
And all I could think was – what kind of stupid joke is this?
Not to want to know and feel everything that exists
Behind the curtain drawn by self-appointed control freaks and their apologists
And then there’s all that crazy superstitious stuff 
Like remembering to take salt for throwing over, right hand, left shoulder
While all I could hear was the best tunes playing through the glass
It’s strange what you can understand but still never really grasp
And all you have to do is learn to turn the other way 
As people around you suffer, well, it’s easy, people suffer every day
And then you find you’re in a trap of your own making, it holds you in its clutch
Because once you’ve touched the poison, you poison everything you touch

If you look for me, you will find me, you will find me
And if you look for me, so you will find me, you will find me
