Am I drowning you out
Bursts of defection
If everything was up to me I would be gone by the first sign
The first sign of hope I'd be packed up and out of my way

Time has been spread so thin
It's just hours till the day begins
And the things that are you keeping you here are not keeping me here
The things that are keeping you here are keeping me away
You'll be sorry, isn't that what they'll say?
Don't follow your heart cause it just seems to get in your way

Don't ever leave here
And mope at your leisure
And straighten out your crease dear
And truth is in a tall beer

Are you drowning your fear
With a glass of deception
When everything is easy then everything will be okay
When everything is easy then you won't be sad that you stayed

Time has been spread so thin
It's just hours till the day begins
And the things that are you keeping you here are not keeping me here
The things that are keeping you here are keeping me away
You'll be sorry, isn't that what they'll say?
Don't follow your heart cause it just seems to get in your way

Don't ever leave here
And mope at your leisure
And straighten out your priest dear
And truth is in a jar here
