Lyrics:

I've lived for years now with the presence, it occupies my brain
Sometimes it causes happiness, sometimes it causes pain

I've lived for years now with the presence at the centre of my heart
And it has kept me glued together, and it will rip me soon apart

The presence will reward me, or it will make me pay
It often makes me run from you, but never lets me stay

The presence is my master, my teacher and my king
The presence is my puppeteer and I am on its string

I wish that it will love me, I hope it lets me go
I'm begging for an answer I do not want to know
I'm begging for an opening, I cower in my cage
The strings pull at my arms and legs
- and I am back on stage
