- LyricsYou want to catch your breath you want to get out
But as you surface you don't really know how
How to live upon the solid ground
Sometimes it's easier to let yourself drown
- LyricsFeeling like I can't forgive
But I want to
It's like I don't know how to live
I'm afraid to
I used to think, take them as they come
- LyricsSaturday what a day what a silly little day
Time to kill take a pill as I sit and contemplate
How I'd like to be around all the people in the town
With their fancy cars and things
And I have got time
- LyricsPainted eyes and empty streets
Taking it down
Selling perfect tragedies
Without a sound
Faded roses scattered on the ground
- LyricsNow I've come to cry
Shed your skin to rest my naked eye
All that I implore
Seems to be one foot outside that door
