To wait seems pointless
So entrenched in this game
Drained and exhausted
I was one to blame
Pulling your weight used to be so easy,
Until my bones and muscles had started to shake

We plunged headfirst into this mistake
While your dreams pulled you from conscious state
And now you'd rather stay awake
Cause once you fall its hell to reawake

Searching through you for any
Signs of authenticity,
Testing your wit, measuring your ability
To juggle and then comprehend
This endless stream of sarcasm
I'll soon relieve you

We plunged head first into this mistake
While your dreams pulled you from conscious state
And now you'd rather stay awake
Cause once you fall

Searching through you for any
Signs of authenticity,
Testing your wit, measuring your ability
To juggle and then comprehend
This endless stream of sarcasm
I'll soon relieve you

And now you'd rather
You'd rather stay awake
You'd so much rather
You'd rather stay awake

No you don't have to let this go

For a time to think that you were out of control
But from now I think you are only (x2)

And now you'd rather
You'd rather stay awake
You'd so much rather
You'd rather stay awake

Searching through you for any
Signs of authenticity,
Testing your wit, measuring your ability
To juggle and then comprehend
This endless stream of sarcasm
I'll soon relieve you

    My Opiniona studio recording is not available anywhere that i know of, i just happened to record it at a show back in 05 and scribbled the lyrics down based on that.

    one of the new songs i've heard has the same chorus as this song, so i'm guessing this version of the song will never make it on to a CD. its a shame too, this song has always been my favorite. in my opinion, no other THT lyrics beat this song.
