Window
I was staring out the window
The whole time he was talking to me
It was a filthy pane of glass
I couldn't get a clear view
And as he went on and on
It wasn't the outside world I could see
Just the filthy pane that I was looking through

So I had to break the window
It just had to be
Better that I break the window
Than him, or her, or me

I was never focused on just one thing
My eyes got fixed when my mind got so
It may look like I'm concentrated on a very clear view
But I'm as good as asleep
I bet you didn't know
But take the lot of it away, if you do

I had to break the window
It just had to be
Better that I break the window
Than him, or her, or me

I had to break the window
It just had to be it was in my way
Better that I break the window
Than forget what I had to say
Or miss what I should see

Because the fact being that
Whatever's in front of me, is colouring my view
So I can't see what I'm seeing
In fact, I only see what I'm looking through

So again, I've done the right thing
I was never worried about that
The answer's always been in clear view
But even when the window's clean
I still can't see for the fact
That when it's clean, it's so clear
I can't tell what I'm looking through

So I had to break the window
It just had to be it was in my way
Better that I break a window
Than him, or her, or me

I had to break the window
It just had to be it was in my way
Better that I break the window
Than miss what I should see

I had to break the window
It just had to be it was in my way
Better that I break the window
Than forget what I had to say
Or miss what I should see
Or break him or her or me
Especially me
