Wait around,
If the fire's there don't put it out.
Lay me down,
Emotions overrated now, rated now.

I don't wanna hear another word you say.
I don't ever wanna waste another day.
What you say, what you say, what you never say.
Every single lie and you're afraid.

Wait around,
To pick up lines to put me downs.
Scream and shout,
Make it up to make it out, to make it out.

I don't wanna hear another word you say.
I don't ever wanna waste another day.
What you say, what you say, what you never say.
Every single lie and you're afraid.

Lay me down,
Emotions overrated now.
Wait around,
If the fire's there don't put me out.

I don't wanna hear a word you say.
I don't ever wanna waste another day.
What you say, what you say, what you fuckin' say.
Every single lie and you're afraid.

Let me, let me out.
Get me, get me out.
Let me, let me out.
Get me, get me out.

Wait around,
If the fire's there, don't put it out,
Put me out, put it out.

    General Commenti think this song is about a relationship in which two people are really in love but always fighting and lying and never saying the words they mean to say. They call each other names but always end up making up by making out. "If the fire's there, don't put it out," means if there is still love between us, dont leave me and let our love burn out like a fire.

    General CommentThis song was the fastest and easiest song on the record to record. It was something that was very in the moment and inspired. It came together from a jam between me and Kenny. The song's true magic is when we play it live. Come to a show.

    I agree - one of the best songs live!
