Please believe me
This isn't where I want to be
Almost off my feet
In a world rotating too fast for me

If I'm a fresh struck match
You're a gust of wind
Sure the breeze feels
Fine but you blow all the time
Tell me whats so wrong with letting me shine
Tell me whats so wrong with letting me shine

C'mon down here it's nice and dark
I'm the gas can, you're the spark

You keep your ego
And I'll keep my peace of mind
You just keep drinking
While I think up all of the lies
I'll have to tell
To explain ourselves after tonight
You be the leader
And I'll keep my place in line

I am the garbage and the disposal
I am a late model almost totaled
Still the charm around my neck
'Cause i haven't learned to tie a noose quite yet

If I'm a fresh struck match
You're a gust of wind
Sure the breeze feels
Fine but you blow all the time
Tell me whats so wrong with letting me shine
Tell me whats so wrong with letting me shine

C'mon down here its nice and dark
I'm the gas can, you're the spark

You keep your ego
And I'll keep my peace of mind
You just keep drinking
While i think up all of the lies
I'll have to tell
To explain ourselves after tonight
You be the leader
And I'll keep my place in line

I can't stand the way you're looking at me
I can't stand the way I'm looking at me

    General CommentSong has a real Motion City Soundtrack sound to it. Could have to do with Josh Cain producing. Either way, this song, along with the rest of the EP, is fucking awesome. Love this band.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song off the EP.

    The only thing you have wrong in the lyrics is that the line is "You be the leader, and I'll keep my place in line" rather than "keep my peace of mind." :)

    General CommentI think this song is about people keeping him from doing what he wants to do. Maybe.
