Well, I just felt an undertow in my veins
And it’s not right, but it feels like it’s a game
Well, you just took, you took hold of the reigns
And then we took our exits left/right off the stage
Which one of us will jump?
Which one of us will work ‘till we fold?
It really the begs the question of to whom this bell will toll
I think I saw a glamorous future ahead
But now it seems we somehow slipped right off the edge

Test all the wires
Make them a part of your next move
Throw down your armor
This is what I came for

And if you don’t like me
You can totally tell me
Try to bury me six feet underneath
And if you don’t love me you can
Send me out to sea
Try to wash yourself clean of my body

And I just thought, I thought that you would relent
A gap of space within our fake friendship
Perhaps this stings, perhaps it’s too much to digest
But this is what will happen from your lack of any consequence

Tiptoe around this circus
Something else may lessen our purpose
It might even be a symptom
Of the stuff we’re made of


I guess it makes no difference in the end
As long as we get out alive
Though things may seem a blissful way at peace
These blisters on my heart, they don’t agree
Don’t tempt me
Wait and see
