Lyrics

Calling the world from isolation
'Cause right now, that's the ball where we be chained
And if you're coming back to find me
You'd better have good aim
Shoot it true
I need you in the picture, that's why I'm calling you
Calling you

I'm the lonely twin, the left hand
Reset myself and get back on track
I don't want this isolation
See the state I'm in now?

Calling the hunter with the rifle
'Cause right now that's the ball where we be chained
Shoot it true
I want you in the picture, that's why I'm calling you
Calling you

I'm the lonely twin, the left hand
Reset myself and get back on track
I don't want this isolation
See the state I'm in now?

If I pick it up when I know that it's broken
Do I put it back?
Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?

I'm the lonely twin, the left hand
(If I pick it up when I know that it's broken)
(Do I put it back?)
I don't want this isolation
(Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?)
See the state I'm in now?
If I pick it up when I know that it's broken
Do I put it back?
Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?
