Take me down
Gimme the score
Tell me I'm gone
Tell me I'm done
You've counted me out
Before the last bell has rung
Tell me I'm gone
Here, brick by brick
Let's rebuild this lovely scene
You say blood is thicker, boy
But it's not what these eyes see
The truth is bitter real
Yes, it's a spinning wheel
Round and around and around we go
You know I never really could get into our conversations
Just merely confrontations
It's a lovefest, an inspiration
You try to play preacher
And teach me the ways of the world
The path you have taken
The dark road was built on the lies that were told
Take me down
Gimme the score
Tell me I'm gone
Tell me I'm done
You've counted me out
Before the last bell has rung
Take me down
Deeper and deeper
Right through the heart
Tell me I'm done
All roads are blocked
And there's no where to run
Tell me I'm gone
You know I've been wandering
And dragging this heavy soul
Lord knows
These lessons you're selling
Soul medicine
Isn't try to meet ya
On that high plateau
So take the message to the chief
Tell him I ain't coming
This heart's too proud it can't be broken
It's a black tie affair
And guess who's coming to dinner
You make the words sound so sweet
Let's pretend that everything's gonna be alright, alright
It took me a second to read ya
Just wasn't my game fool
Face me when I speak to ya
Take me down...

    Tell me I'm gone

    I think it's about a man running away from his responsiblity.
    Confused and afraid to accept his liability as a father.

    I've tried my best to keep this relation stand, and after everything, All is gone... Dream that you want for you and that person...
