Verse 1
Call and I'll answer
At home in the lost and found
You say that Im much too proud
Someone whos taken pleasure
In breaking down

Never mind the mannequins
Drunk in their hollow town
Drinking their spoils down
Cheap imitations
A revelation is now

Chorus
Yeah, you wont find me
Im going m.i.a.
Tonight Im leaving
Going m.i.a.
Getting lost in you again
Is better than being numb

Verse 2
Counting every minute
Till the feeling comes crashing down
Run when it hits the ground
Im good at escaping,
But better at flaking out

Calling unanswered
The center becomes blown out
Stuck on the inside now
Its fear Im embracing
I never could face you down

Chorus

Bridge
Red, red, laced around your head
Cold and rescued

Repeat verse 1

Yeah, you wont find me
Im going m.i.a.
Tonight Im leaving
Going m.i.a.
So you don't find me
Im going m.i.a.
Tonight Im leaving
Going m.i.a.
Say goodbye to me
Im going m.i.a.
I can find relief
Im going m.i.a.
Getting lost in you again
Is better than being numb

Better than playing dumb
