"Spell It Out" as written by and Daniel Anthony/mcnamara Mcnamara....
Here's my list of all the things I should have said and done.
The boats I missed and all the fights I lost I really should have won.
And I'm not the only one. But I won't bow or take the world as you would hand it down.
So leave me out of all your plans 'cause I don't need them now I'll find my own way out.
'Cause when you're left with nothing there's nothing left to lose.
That's when they'll come looking for me and you.
Once we wanted nothing and everything was new.
It was all laid out just for me and you now.
Wave goodbye I know that I'll believe if you spell it out for me, spell it out so everyone can see.
All that really matters not to me is that I could set you free. But my hands are tied and I can't find my feet.
Sit by me for long enough and watch your enemies float downstream one by one until you realize you're free.
There's no one left but me.
'Cause when you're left with nothing there's nothing left to lose.

That's when they'll come looking for me and you. Once we wanted nothing and everything was new.
It was all laid out just for me and you now.
Wave goodbye 'cause I know I'll believe if you spell it out for me spell it out so everyone can see.
All that really matters now to me is that I could set you free. But my hands are tied and I can't find my feet.
This sweet old world will give it out until it's time to leave.
I won't hurt for you when all you want's a flawless victory.
How wrong could anyone be? 'Cause when you're left with nothing there's nothing left to lose.
That's when they'll come looking for me and you. Once we wanted nothing and everything was new.
It was all laid out just for me and you now.
Wave goodbye I know that I'll believe if you spell it out for me spell it out so everyone can see.
All that really matters not to me is that I could set you free but my hands are tied and I can't find my feet.
