I can't see no shadow
I turn away
Nothing to protect to me
My dream goes on
A bugs inside me chirping
Pain’s near
I look at the ceiling and all I think about is

Zero, zero, Zero

I can't see no shadows
I run away (((Arouunnnd The Wayyy)))
I got no basics
My hands stop
Maybe I was born to be
Maybe I was born to sing

Zero, zero, Zero

I believe in karma!
Huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh
