Total plays on over the last 6 months
    To breathe the name
    Of your savior
    In your hour of need
    And taste the blame,
    If the flavor should remind you of greed

    In our headlights
    Staring, bleak
    Beer cans
    Deer's eyes

    Hear your heartbeat
    Beat a frantic pace
    And it's not even seven AM
    You're feeling the rush of anguish settling
    You cannot help showing them in
    Sleep  -  980,348 plays
    Times when I just can't
    Bring myself to say it loud
    Afraid that what I'll say comes out somehow awry
    That is when it seems
    We move in circles day to day
    Lift  -  747,826 plays
    I've walked the distance, I paid my dues and tried to have a go at what I thought I knew was real, held
    No appeal
    I've been to places, I've seen the tidings,
    I bought a book of rules for every coin that I could steal
    And so I came to gaze upon the stars, when they were yet unborn
