Bad For Me
I woke up in this bed alone, but
I'm okay, and I'll remember that.
This will never keep me down no matter what it weights, and I'll remember that.
Did you earn the right to take this sound?
Do you want the answer?
The answer's way underground.
The casket's caving in.
I'll let it die with me again.
You, you're playing favorites now.
It'll never be the same, and I'll remember that.
Mourning dove, I think you're out of luck
You know that putting the card face down is part of the game
It feels like love and it fits like a glove
But when you cut off all of the fingers it's not the same
Wait for a better hand to play
Oh, I'm tired of waiting for something to shake
We're better than this
Oh, I'm tired of writing for you to relate
We're better than this
Let Me In
Some days I need to get my mind straight, and gravity's my greatest friend.
When the buildings fall down,
I'll be standing my ground.
I'm not afraid of what you've become.
Look into my eyes, there's nowhere left to run.
Get up and don't waste my time.
I need a place to rest my head.
Sometimes I wish someone would rest theirs on me again.
So I went to your house, and no one let me in.
Losing faith will pay off when
I still think it's amazing how much baggage I take in.
I used to let things slide.
Now I'm sick, it's contagious.
Write that shit then erase it.
I'm on the other side of enemy lines.
So thanks a lot.
I'm making waves, and you're not.
I'm done taking bad advice if that's fine by you.
I hate being so well versed. Hard getting to the chorus.
Remember that bridge we burned?
Running Out Of Places To Go
This is for an audience of one at a time, so I'll sing it straight, I'll sing it loud.
Don't keep it a secret, keep it elite.
If only all your friends could see me now.
How important are the words?
In one ear, already forgot 'em. So many metaphors it could sink the fucking ship.
I'll see you all at the bottom.
If there was a shotgun blast from my bedroom and you were outside the window, would you see a flash, or hear the sound?
'Cause living out our dreams has been killing me.
Did you hear it die, or is there no sound when no one else is around?
I was running out of places to go.
