lyrics

I had a dream where we both ended up getting caught in a brushfire
The ring that surrounded us ten feet taller than you
You were getting sick at the thought sight and sound of what transpired
I was getting tired of wondering what’s the use
We could write a book on the rise and the fall of an empire
Make a new law for each and every excuse
The cavalry will call as your face turns pale and you retire
Sink to the floor and pray for something to do
Let’s cut out the middle man
He’s the only man I can’t stand
Nothing ever makes any sense
Nothing ever goes like we planned
I think I know, that I sink too low, don't I know, don't I know.
Wake up
You’ve been living your whole life
Just looking through the blinds
You’re leaving yourself behind
Make up
A reason to be alive
A reason to just get by
You're leaving yourself behind
I was wondering how it felt this time to be honest
When you dragged yourself to the street to say what you'd seen
Sweating to death in the backyard denying to comment
And opening up for everybody to see
Everything I pray for gets sold on the TV
With a dotted line, and a credit card I’m buying happy
I don’t discuss myself enough, the thought of it disgusts me
Everything I hope for isn’t always what it seems
All the legwork put into pride is proving overwhelming
Talk me down I just need a second to breathe
