A little girl with the face of a world turned black
Lights you up with a match as you watch her pass
And I'm the one who's sorry because it's not her fault
She's a walking replication of what I mean
And everything I've felt here in every dream
For every waking hour I've spent.

But I know it's not time to leave
Though my body is cutting free
And my heart is out waiting for me
Somewhere out there in that country air
Where everything is what it seems

A stranger walks with unwavering arrogance
And looks you up and down with a combative stare
But these are such envious eyes you know.
So Fuckin' loaded to escape anyway they can
Like a candle that's burning from both ends
Of this wretched island, this rotting core
And I'm leavin' them to burn...

And I know it's not time to leave
Though my body is cutting free
And my heart is out waiting for me
Somewhere out there in that country air
Where everything is what it seems

And I'll take anyone who will stand right next to me
And I'll take anyone who will take the time to see
That as long as you're alive,
There is no time to waste on animosity
Your enemies exhale the next air you breathe

But I know it's not time to leave
Though my body is cutting free
And my heart is out waiting for me
Somewhere out there in that country air
Where everything is what it seems

Where all we need is honesty
And a little love just to even things out
All the chemistry that we'd create
Just picture this in a picture-less house

On Friday nights we dance
Beneath the warmest moons
Evidently it's our nature
To fulfill our body's wager
And succumb to all our lust
Forgetting that we were innocent once
Eventually it'll catch up someday
But this is life, and living never felt so right.
