The Variance – Wipe Away The Debt lyrics

[Verse:]
The first breath I ever took
Well frankly it took my breath away
And if I was new, then you were too
And we could take this city and raise it one day.
But oh, travesty!
Who is this man that was born in that river?
"Am I you, or am I me?"
I asked myself; as I couldn't remember.

[Chorus:]
The only thing I really know
Is I've got this debt to pay
And I've been living in shame for 20 long years
Til a man came along and gave me a way
Out of this madness
That I call my life
(Or the life that I've had since that one fateful night)
And until I met you, my mind, it was set
But what price do I pay to wipe away debt?

[Verse 2:]
Oh Mary, Mary, quite contrary
Won't you sing that song again?
The one with the notes that I'll remember
Up until the day that I'm dead?
Oh no, baby, please don't cry
You don't have to sing tonight
Just sit down and I'll tell you a story
Of cities in water and practical glory.

[Chorus:]
The only thing I really know
Is I've got this debt to pay
And I've been living in shame for 20 long years
Til a man came along and gave me a way
Out of this madness
That I call my life
(Or the life that I've had since that one fateful night)
And until I met you, my mind, it was set
But what price do I pay to wipe away debt?

[Bridge:]
So would you kindly take my hand
And pull me deeper below?
Be the weights around my ankles
When I need air, I'll let you
-Repeat-

[Chorus:]
The only thing I really know
Is I've got this debt to pay
And I've been living in shame for 20 long years
Til a man came along and gave me a way
Out of this madness
That I call my life
(Or the life that I've had since that one fateful night)
And until I met you, my mind, it was set
But what price do I pay to wipe away debt?
To wipe away debt
To wipe away debt
To wipe away debt
