Circa Survive – The Lottery lyrics

[Verse 1]
It happened all in the passing of light
We won’t see it coming
I know that we’ll all lose in time
But my mind won’t stop running

[Chorus 1]
Blame it on the air that you breathe
Well I can’t see how anything’s nursed on disease
Nothing is clean in this place
Our only hope is cutting off the nose to spite the face

[Chorus 2]
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it tear us apart!
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you

[Verse 2]
This intrusion’s a functioning curse
Break the thumb and the whole hand will hurt
It’s not like moving backwards in time
It happened all in the passing of light

[Chorus 1]
Blame it on the air that you breathe
Well I can’t see how anything’s nursed on disease
Nothing is clean in this place
Our only hope is cutting off the nose to spite the face

[Chorus 2]
Who’ll take the lottery?
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it tear us apart
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you
