Exitin' the shower
I forgot to wash my heart
Now the dust has turned to mud
Since we've been apart
This angel whispered in my ear
As I brushed my teeth
She said
"Muddy hearts work twice as hard
And still can barely beat"
I know it's true
I exit through you

You always did understand
That time ticks away
Everything you ever give
To cure you of delay
We've both been here so very long
Now we just pretend
To be head over heels in love
Like we've been saved again
It's true
I exit through you
Exit through you

What use is it to wash that stuff away?
In every place that we have run to
All that we've begun with was here to stay

(Exitin' the shower
I forgot to wash my heart
Now the dust has turned to mud
Since we've been apart
This angel whispered in my ear
As I brushed my teeth
She said
"Muddy hearts work twice as hard)
And still can barely beat"

Your eyes like brandin' irons
Make impressions on my skin
I burn so very easy
When I'm proud of who I am
It feels like rigor mortis
But it tastes like bubblegum
All these words you need to say
They're on the tip of your tongue
It's true
I exit through you
Exit through you

What use is it
To wash that stuff away?
In every place
That we have run to
All that we've begun
With was (t)here to stay

When my days have been clocked
And all the gates
Have been locked
When the way is all blocked
I exit through you
There's only one way out

(Exitin' the shower
I forgot to wash my heart
Now the dust has turned to mud
Since we've been apart
This angel whispered in my ear
As I brushed my teeth
She said
"Muddy hearts work twice as hard)
And still can barely beat"

There's only one way out
Only one way out

(Exitin' the shower
I forgot to wash my heart
Now the dust is turned to mud
Since we've been apart
This angel whispered in my ear
As I brushed my teeth
She said
"Muddy hearts work twice as hard)
And still can barely beat"

Only one way
I exit through you

(Exit through you)

One way out
