As I sift and drift through bullshit,
That plagues from day to day,
Would you ever really notice I've gone away?

CHORUS

I'm over the wall,
Over the hill,
Over at your place,
I'm over the safeties,
Over the phone calls,
Over the rage,
What a mistake.

When you've lost the stones to throw,
The ones I found to make a fire,
And all the lonely souls that say so get fired.

CHORUS

What a mistake,
What a mistake,
What a mistake,
What a mistake,

I've never been lost,
I've never been found,
And it make no difference, if I'm around,
There's never been words, never been actions
Never made promises that i never kept.

I'm over the wall,
Over the hill,
Over at your place

Interlude by both Chad & Ryan:

I just can't seem to get out of this,
Pulling on a thread,
I'm always pulling on a thread,
I'm always pulling on a thread,
And I'm always
What a mistake, mistake.

So as i sift and drift through bullshit,
That plagues from day to day,
Would you ever really notice I've gone away?

    i think he's trying to say that he's tired of his gf not listening to him, so he leaves her and she doesn't notice he's gone.
