This is a sound check
This is where we check the sound
Of complex explanations for the tragedies in which we drown
This is a sound check

I can hear my resolve snap as our bodies bend
I don’t think I could tell you where I wanted this to end
Trying hard not to think of anything but her skin
Everyone makes mistakes sometimes,
at the moment I’m just cashing mine in

Close my eyes and find a groove
Let myself go, begin to move
The further I drift away from shore
All I want is more

She’s asking me if I want to stop,
but the last thing that I want to do is talk
About what it is that I really want and why
There’s a pain in my chest that’s beginning to burn like sin
And I’m beginning to wonder if we’re ever gonna get out
of the mess we’re in

Close my eyes and find a groove
Let myself go, begin to move
The further I drift away from shore
All I want is more

You don’t have to testify
When no one ever asks you why
It’s not hard to justify
When you’ve never told a lie

This is a sound check
It’s where we check the sound
Of justifications and apologies so profound
This is a sound check


This is a sound check
This is where we check the sound
Of complex explanations for the tragedies in which we drown
Thanks for coming to the sound check
