if it's the truth
that's all i know
i look for you
and just say no

the lie that was
is now the last
i'll go for you

before i sleep
i hear you say
you say

i'll stay near the edge
and waste my time
just waste my time

    General CommentThis song is so simple and haunting, like "Into Dust". The one thing I really admire about this song is the use of the Am7 chord. It almost sounds like it shouldn't be there, almost cringe worthy, except for some reason it just WORKS. It's so abstract and gives the song a dark little kink.
    The lyrics seem to be about a falling out between two people. The person singing is saying that they're over the other person and maybe that what they did was unforgivable or the last straw. The last part is saying that the antagonist will just be wasting their time if they wait for the singer to give them a second chance because it won't happen. It's pretty bitter, which is always satisfying :)
