Manchester Orchestra – The Moth lyrics

[Verse 1]
I want it all, I want it free
But nobody's responding
The last thing that you heard was an inebriated slur
You can cry here all you want, but you don't live here anymore

[Pre-Chorus]
There's a way out
There's a way in
There's a way out
There's a way in

[Chorus]
Forced myself to take a different name
Buried with metonymy
Decide for me
Throw the man you used to be away
Bury him with rivalry entirely

[Verse 2]
My entire life you've been obsessing with the light
The closer that you get, the further up you've got to climb
You wanna hear it hurt, you wanna feel it when he dies
If you walk that path alone, you've got to look him in the eye

[Pre-Chorus]
There's a way out
There's a way in
There's a way out
There's a way in

[Chorus]
Forced myself to take a different name
Buried with metonymy
Decide for me
Throw the man you used to be away
Bury him with rivalry entirely

[Chorus]
Forced myself to take a different name
Buried with metonymy
Decide for me
Throw the man you used to be away
Bury him with rivalry entirely

[Outro]
"What about our future?"
