Broadside – The Simple Type lyrics

You know I’m stubborn most the time
Always caught up in my mind
You’re throwin stones into an ocean
At its highest tide
And I’m counting all the ways
To turn my back and walk away
Tellin me to play it safe
But your routine ain’t for me

We shoot first, ask questions last
Cause the days go by so fast
Only focused on the outcome
And not stressin on our path

And I know you don’t understand
Why I chase what I can’t have
Yea, you say you know best
We swear we know better

Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type
Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type

You’re not focused on my climb
Only promising my fall
But you should know you’re throwing
Punches at a brick wall

I’m counting all the ways
To turn my back
And walk away
Telling me to play it safe
But you’re routine ain't for me

Cause there is a gun
At the back of my head
And I can’t make a decision
I don’t wanna waste
Anymore of their time

We shoot first, ask questions last
Cause the days go by so fast
Only focused on the outcome
And not stressin on our path

And I know you don’t understand
Why I chase what I can’t have
Yea, you say you know best
We swear we know better

Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type
Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type

So confused as you stand there
Tired bones and your grey hair
Don’t you ever compare me
To the mistakes you made before me

Forcing pieces together
In the end you’ll see
Puzzled look on the faces
Of those who doubted me


We shoot first, ask questions last
Cause the days go by so fast
Only focused on the outcome
And not stressin on our path

And I know you don’t understand
Why I chase what I can’t have
Yea, you say you know best
We swear we know better

Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type
Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type

Out of sight out of mind
I’m the simple type
Out of sight, out of mind
