Jimmy Eat World – Distraction lyrics

There's a simple escape
It covers any mistake
Always have a good distraction
You can keep the debate
He said, she said rage
They'll forget whatever happens

We divide, we take a side, spinning on forever.

Run, slow down, run we're all waiting in the same line

Use your heard to prepare
A real fights not declared
A symbol doesn't cause your problems
Take a walk see who cares
It only works if you're scared
Dry the fear and you have options

Pick someone, anyone, no one ever questions

Run, slow down run, we're all waiting in the same line
