Driving to work at 5am.
I'm always late. Everyday.
It's so cold outside that the smoke
from the hospital looks like clumps of cotton
in the pre-dawn light.

I hate this city.
All of the buildings look the same to me.
All of these late nights feel the same to me.
And it's become abundantly clear
that there is nothing left for me here...

But a dead-end job.
A couple distant friends.
A freezing house.
Alcoholic weekends.
I'm just scraping by,
by the skin of my teeth.
This corrosive way of life
is giving me cavities.

I've got to get out before the snow falls.
I've got to get out before it all freezes.
I've got to get out to kill the demons.
I've got to get out to stop the bleeding.

Cause' I would rather die on this empty road
than stay here with you and still feel alone.
I'd rather remember you as you were
than stay here with you and what you've become.
