The clock is running out of time, I cannot set,
And I need to feel important,
Reaching up I gotta get this of my chest,
Call this a final warning,
I’m so tired, but I cannot fall asleep,
I’m so hungry, but I cannot bring myself to eat,
I’m holding on to what I wanted way back when,
The emotions gone,
Is it the way it should have been?
The stories are drawn,
Do we erase or just fill in?
All the blanks that are one,
It’s a fabricated mission,

Calm and quiet like a picture to the final floor ,
She waits, the silk seductress,
Does she know I don’t wanna stay,
I could never say that’s its time to move on,

I never said, that I wanted to be saved,
Pass the shovel, here I am to help you dig my own grave,
And I cannot wash away this sand,
Cause I'm down and and pinned,
In a position I never wanted into anyway,

All I got to give to get to gain is time,
And a little frustration,
You set yourself up for this thought she says,
It’s too late because I’ve already finished all the poison,

Hey pretty baby I saw that you liked his smile,
You know that it takes a while, to take some risks,
And I don’t think that I could ever get another chance like,
With a murderous taste upon my lips,
Never really made much sense,
And such a gentle sin is this, made up for time we had spent,
Overdue in a place we never knew,
And in a place we’ve never been,
I’d rather be alone and love to be forgotten,

I never said, that I wanted to be saved,
Pass the shovel, here I am to help you dig my own grave,
And I cannot wash away this sand,
Cause I'm down and and pinned,
In a position I never wanted into anyway,

    General Commentthe lyrics are great, i don't know what you're talking about gabriela.

    i think it's about a kid being forced to (well, peer pressured into) having sex for the first time. he wants to, in a sense, but then again he really doesn't want to. he knows that it's going to cause trouble, and he can't really get out of the situation, but he just wants to get it over with.

    or i could be completely off.

    General Commenti think its about wanting to break up with someone but not wanting to hurt the person

    (Does she know I don’t wanna stay,
    I could never say that’s its time to move on,)
