It wraps around the cord for him
Said I'm wasting, sinking
Soaking in to bones and cartilage
Crossing out the quarter where he lives

So I have arrived
Know this nothing gets me nowhere
Know I am larger than this lie
Our generations

I have only one regret
At the moment I forget
Any takers on this life
And if you're the last one left
This is my request
Could you just shut off the lights

Take a sample and let it testify
Drowning endless estimation anger of my life
Terrorized to the ending of my end
Everything is absent is nothing I can give

So I have arrived
Know this nothing gets me nowhere
Know I am larger than this lie
Our generations

I have only one regret
At the moment I forget
Any takers on this life
And if you're the last one left
This is my request
Could you just shut off the lights

    General CommentA great song indeed!I heard it at a friends house, and was told that the band who played it was called''Keepsake'' so for the longest time i couldn't find the song cause i was only looking for keepsake. Eventually google set me straight and let me know that it was actually a song by knapsack.Anyway, this song is awsome!!
