Pavlovian dog meets Schroedinger's cat

you look happy when I act the way you want me to / it seems that it makes you feel powerful / but has it ever occurred to you / that your existence might blur to uncertainty / when I am not here to look after you. well, that's the end of the story / enjoy the glorious achievements / before I leave you and go / but when I'm gone you might cease to be / cause seriously / you define yourself by the form of control you have over me / for how much longer I will take this / I cannot say. but you conditioned me to stay / it's a twisted situation we're in / lose-lose / instead of win-win / it's only now that I begin to see / we're prisoners of our own reality / what started up as an experiment / will never come to its bitter end / as we reached the point of no return a long time ago / you say it's you live and you learn / I think it's a stupid show / we're putting on here / you think you stronger than me / yes, you might be / and in fact I'm slightly distracted / cause I know you strong because I'm weak / the power you seek is artificially created / we should have known right from the start we'd go to far / and that this is what happens / when the relationship between Pavlovian dog and Schroedinger's cat ends.

I don't want to be that sad sod that I see / or hear / when I talk about our reality / the sheer vastness of choices / is for me too hard to grasp / and your voice is flat / with this and that / you say you want to save me / and in a way you do / it makes you sick to see me suffer / and yet you're cruel to me / every fool can see / we're prisoners of our own reality / I'm the captain of your heart / but I hit an iceberg / I went down to the bottom of the sea / and now you're laughing at me / but your face is a quote / of admittance that it's me that keeps you afloat / you see, what goes up must come down / but if you fall too far you might drown / for a minute or two we thought / we might just as well be able to cut through the darkness of ignorance / fast found significance / we didn't quite get it right the first time around / so we carry on with this fight it hurts be found / on the verge of collapse / it's a virtual fact / that our search has always lacked its goal / always too proud for ours souls to be allowed to connect but in pain / in vain I've been looking for a way out / or to regain myself from this deadly layout / insane it is and way to late for me to bail out / we should have known right from the start we'd go to far / and that this is what happens / when the relationship between Pavlovian dog and Schroedinger's cat ends.
