Blue October – The Flight lyrics
I'm asking you one question.
Do you want me to sign away the rights as a father to my daughter
So that you'll leave me alone and let Blue be happy?
Everything is...

She's so happy.
I wish you knew that.

She is happy, I know but...

She's such a happy girl.

I'm I'm I'm I'm asking to just...
How do I... ?

I think that your right.
I don't think your ready for a family Justin.

I'm not ready for a... ?

And when you are, I hope that you have one with...
With somebody that...
That you treat much better than you did us.
But I think at this point you should probably acknowledge that fact that...

That... ?

You have failed miserably

Verse 1:
No joke took a breath and then awoke.
I was standing in an airport looking like a joke.
Saying Sir can you help me, ma'am could you please?
So they lead me to the pay phone flagging down the police.
Mr. Officer I know who I am but the rest of me my memory I just don't
I do know that I'm unsafe man with a plan
Of getting on a plane, fly away to kill a man.
Like a freight train; threat to myself.
I got a history of blackouts, bad mental health.
Both cops each arm, alarm, no harm, disarm, pat down, do the body
Next thing I was a walking on the airfield.
Backseat I was a heading to the hospital.
I'm sorry for the drama that I bring through the screen.
He said "Son you did the right thing."


Please help me understand why you can't talk man to man,
But you can stand with your dick in your hand.
You're acting like a pussy, man.
Hey! Hey!

Verse 2:
I was faithful to my wife and now we're separated.
Use to try and win her back I underestimated.
Like a stone sank down into the complicated.
Despite the fact that she gave that ass up and never fucking dated.
See your better than that.
You're a diamond, he's a rough
Well he's a rough real tough man going round the back.
Just a pussy with a dick stand up and be a fucking man.
Hiding from the husband scared I'll make a beating.
Now I'm off to Lincoln
I'm in the deep end.
Think I'll I come and break you smash your fucking face in.
Cut you up in lemon juice and watch you try to fuck them.

[Chorus:] X2

Uh oh uh oh oh oh oh uhoh uh oh oh
Uh oh uh oh oh uh uh ohuh uh oh oh ohoh
Uh oh uh oh oh oh oh uhoh uh oh oh
Uh oh uh oh oh uh uh ohuh

Verse 3:
Is that beat up?
Is that beat up yet?
Please help me understand.
Why you can't talk man-to-man.
Is that beat up?
Is that beat up yet?
Ha! Ha!
Stand up.
Stand on top of.
(Whispered Grunts)

[Chorus:] X2

[Bridge:] X4
