eyes set to kill upon a second hand thats moving way to slow
ill take the hour glass and dump the sand and set the time unknown
i said enoughs enough.
(theres so much out there i have yet to see.)
im climbing out of my own rut.
(A better person i have yet to to be.)
set the stage and pile all our chances in the spotlight
i wont waste a minute of your time, ill show you im right
sanity is breaking at the bend and only getting worse as i get older
hold on to my head afraid it might roll right off my shoulders, here we go...
I dont want to live my life not knowing about the backroad.
so ill just save my breath and bite my tongue
refrain from my excuse
so lets roll the dice, how can you blame me if the price is right
im empty handed but im better off with none at all
I've got nothing to lose
up til the crack of dawn trash all on the lawn and were good to go
this place is always a mess
these days are always the best
(im never standing alone)
im sick of all these stupid problems, so many stupid ways to solve them
border line intoxicated
all along you always been the air that kept me breathing
play your song, the metronome's a heart that wont stop beating
promise me this is not pretend, or every grain of sand is a second wasted
guided by the hand, home is only where you wanna make it, here we go...
i dont want to live my life not knowing about the backroad.
when im lost for words ill rip apart the thoughts inside my head
torn apart and longing for a needle and a thread
to piece me back together and rid me of this mess
im tangled once again.
the clock is ticking and i think im running out of time
its time to shout it out, we shut up for far too long
so pay attention when the answer sits before your eyes
you think its all been right, all this time its all been wrong.
