Bitter Ruin – Volunteer lyrics

Wait for a day when you’re not relevant to the past
I’m playing, I’m playing
And it’s not a game when you know that your chances are slim
For winning, you’re winning

In all honesty you are undercutting everybody
Lean on the door you’re the easy find they’re looking for
In all honesty you’re a mess

In my mind I guess I am a volunteer
The scientist in you is resting except something’s wrong
And everyone around our table, in hushed voices says
‘It’s too late, she’s already gone’

Yes it’s a shame but you’re missing the point I am fine
Reliving, reliving
And yes I’m ashamed but the milestone is wandering far
And I’m running, still running

Matter of fact you’re the bible with a violent impact
Matter of fact you are blind

In my mind I guess I am a volunteer
Here out of choice
In my mind I guess I am a volunteer
Screaming with no voice

My spade is heavy lord I cannot dig anymore
I’m in for another win, pick up your cards off the floor
And I’m feeling the pull to the door, to the door
To the draw

In my mind I guess I am a volunteer
In my mind I guess I am a volunteer
