Time is a butcher
And just like everyday
The blade is gonna fall and we're helpless
I don't mean to bum you out
But I just gotta say
Truth is anything I agree with

Don't believe what I say anymore
Hang around... I just wanna go home
It pays to not know anything at all
But your secret's safe with me

Chorus:
I am the Idiot Child
Gonna pick a brand new fight tonight
We all got problems of our own
Isn't that so...
Isn't that so?

Heart is a fugitive
Always on the run
It's gonna cost somebody to catch it
Wait 'til your daddy gets home
Promise me you'll wait til you're not alone
What will you sacrifice to hold it

Don't believe what I say anymore
Hang around - I just wanna go home
It pays to not know anything at all
But your secret's safe with me

Repeat chorus

Lookin' out the window
It's not like I remember it
But it was sweet of you to wake me
I don't mean to kick myself
Don't wanna cry
I just need someone to believe in me

Repeat chorus
