Take your last look around
Take the fall that is due.
And take your time,
and I'll take mine.
It's the last thing that's left for us to do

You have tried to define romance,
And all the things that it is not
Your time became some old man's cane
While he dances to a song that he forgot.

Oh, you can't throw something out there without watching it fall.
Only thing that's scarier than dying is not dying at all.
So when I have lost all my control
God will rest my soul.

I guess your mind can lead your heart.
I guess that's what you're doing now.
But it doesn't make us friends
Or better men
It is not something that love would allow.

Oh you can't throw something out there without watching it fall,
Only thing that's scarier than dying is not dying at all.
So when I have lost all my control
God will rest my soul.

And just like how I'll drink myself through my seventh relapse,
Like a captain of his sinking ship clutches to his maps.
What the figure on the cross thinks with his one final gasp-
This too shall pass.

Oh you can't throw something out there without watching it fall,
Only thing that's scarier than dying is not dying at all.
So when I have lost all my control
God will rest my soul.

    General Commentgod, i've just been reading their lyrics for the first time. just got goosebumps with this:

    What the figure on the cross thinks with his one final gasp-
    This too shall pass.

    Oh you can't throw something out there without watching it fall,
    Only thing that's scarier than dying is not dying at all.
    So when I have lost all my control
    God will rest my soul.
