my open eyes they cannot find
the only thing i search for
like unlocked lips, my words they slip
back to where i was before

and i've seen you puke and beg
on your hands and knees
until they're red
haven't seen me losin' it
why don't you just quit?

break this static feeling
give me what i'm needing
whoa, i thought i'd come around
but then i let you down
down, down, down

like an echo, repeated slow
i've heard it twelve times over
like shaky hands, not useful
when you needed cover

go ahead, puke and beg
on your hands and knees
until they're red
haven't seen me losin' it
why don't we just quit?

break this static feeling
give me what i'm needing
whoa, i thought i'd come around
but then i let you down
without a warning
tried your best out on me
oh, i almost came around
but then i let you down

you say i just can't up and quit
then i let you down
but your touch is damaging
and i can't quit

down, down, down, down
then i let you down
down, down, down, down
then i let you down

like i back bone, i'll hold my own

break this static feeling
give me what i'm needing
whoa, i thought i'd come around
but then i let you down
without a warning
tried your best out on me
oh, i almost came around
but then i let you down
