Hope Of The States – Bonfires lyrics

It's speeding up around me
But my heart is slowing down until it stops
This train is off the rails
The devil's in the details
No one notices

There's bonfires in my head
There's criminals in my chairs
No one notices

I'm desperate and lonely
The hospital is empty
No one notices

It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry'
For all the pain and the worry
What are you waiting for?
Give up on me and leave

It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry'
For all the pain and the worry
What are you waiting for?
Give up on me and leave

So I saw the house is empty
The people gathered round and spat at me
You're the family we hated
Not the only one who waited for the end

There's bonfires in my head
There's criminals in my chairs
No one notices

And I'll lead them off the edge
I'll drown them in the dead sea
Now they're noticing

It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry'
For all the pain and the worry
What are you waiting for?
Give up on me and leave

It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry'
For all the pain and the worry
What are you waiting for?
Give up on me and leave

It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry'

It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry'
For all the pain and all of the worry
What are you waiting for?
Give up on me and leave
