i wasn't ready for the way you embarrassed me
but all the debts that i've not paid are embarrassing
well, now if you want to blame me i don't blame you
yeah it's true -- i've been careless
i am remembering the days of security
back before the fog and haze and impurity
well, now if you want to blame me i don't blame you
yeah it's true -- i've been ungrateful
water to the flame, flickering heat
they're calling for the rain to fall and flood the streets

and here we are sawing branches off a tree
standing so tall and healthy
the leaves, shading the flowers beneath
all we wanted was to see the sky in its honesty
now we have no way of escaping the heat

i call you out into the rain from your balcony
you ask me what there is to gain by my company
well, now if you want to blame me i don't blame you
yeah it's true -- i've been selfish
water to the flame, flickering heat
they're calling for the rain to fall and flood the streets

and here we are sawing branches off a tree
standing so tall and healthy
the leaves, shading the flowers beneath
all we wanted was to see the sky in its honesty
now we have no way of escaping the heat

sawing branches off a tree, standing so tall and healthy
now we have no way of escaping the heat
