Mary 03:08
Today, I'd do anything to get back to you Tonight, I could be sleeping in your car Or anywhere, at any place. If that'd be okay. I know I say these things and my mind is changed the next day I swear, I've heard this before But, I wonder how I got here Gather my things, I know it's day to day Am I okay? I want to put a rope around my neck I've always been one for the dramatics To swing, to swing Oh God, I want to sing but I hate it I hate everything Swing, swing, I wish you could swing Rather you than me Swing, swing, oh please oh please We aren't half as dead as you
Tired Of Me 04:08
All I know, time is running out Mom and dad get older and I'm next in line And for once, I wish it wasn't me Knocking on your door to let me in I know you'll never come back again And I've been out for days because he's been gone for weeks Plugging answers to questions Never including you I'm tired of praying, tired of me too I want to know, who's really missing who? I spent the week, driving down the same streets My father, just like me, grown restless with defeat Does it hurt him now? But he won't make a sound Cracks a smile and turns his truck back around Could you have that feeling? Do I even feel at all? Are we only dreaming, waiting for a call? But, I don't get the reasons, get nothing at all Maybe it's the season, we only hit the wall
Calculation 03:18
Since 17, I thought about you and me but, what did I receive? The feeling, and fearing of growing older, weighing on my shoulders Do you wake up at night? Does the feeling of helplessness hold you tight? Can we get back to sleep? Thought of wasting, more terrifying in dreams I had a wonderful plan, how did it get to this? Calculated steps, achieve everything All I need was someone or something But, eventually oh, it'll mean nothing to me Honestly, I don't believe in the comfort and safety of the same routine And you turn off all your dreams And I'd like to, and I want to, there's nothing more I'd rather do
On going and treason Why did it ever bother me? Did it ever bother you? And there's a light on in your room Who you'll never pray to be, who I'll never get to see And I cut the ropes that tie my arms and legs And I ask why I'm not bright enough to shine I'll fight it off for a little while But, I'll eventually die There's nothing else I need to say. What do I need to be? There's nothing left for us to lose. What do you want to be? There's nothing else I want to do, so won't you tell me? There's no reason for me to yield, so won't you tell me? Time and failure, one after another and you can choose to continue I know where you'll end up Yes, I know where you'll end up
