"Intervention" as written by Larry Darnell Griffin and Yolanda Johnson....
I know that I just fucked up everything,
And I know that nights like these might leave a scar.
I gave up every goddamn thing for you,
And now I'm stuck here in the backseat of my car.

And you know sometimes, when I'm drunk on wine, I think I can change.
When the morning kills the hopes, and hills turn mountain range,

Then this world works like a machine,
It keeps smashing my dreams,
So I stay close to myself,
'Cause when you live in hell, you know things never work out.
I get consumed by the doubt.
I'm not surprised at the way it ended up today.

Say "what's the point?" as you look down and close your eyes.
"There's a million ways that we never tried.
See, all my friends already gone, and you're still here."
Then you close the door, watch you mouth goodbye.

When I find my keys, I'm eastbound walking home.
And I curse the skies and kick these cobblestones.
I gave you every goddamn thing I've got.
And if you add it up, I guess it's not a lot.

But you know sometimes, when I'm drunk on wine, I think I can change.
When the morning kills the hopes, and hills turn mountain range,

Then this world works like a machine,
It keeps smashing my dreams,
So I stay close to myself,
'Cause when you live in hell, you know things never work out.
I get consumed by the doubt.
I'm not surprised at the way it ended up today.

Dark eyes unfocused on the light.
Gonna be another lonely night.
I don't have time for intervention.

I hear almost every word you say.
We're just getting by in different ways.
I don't have time for intervention.

It took me years to build this wall.
All brick by brick, just let me fall.
I don't have time for intervention.

I know exactly what I need,
A ride home and a couple days of sleep.
I don't have time for intervention.

    General CommentFuck these guys are good. I don't think you need to read super far into this one to get any sort of meaning out of it but I love it.
