Take the car, and turn it into our alibis
discard the body, pop some pills and you'll be fine
Purge, then binge, restart and insert the sutures
Turn off the lights, I'm watching back to the future

Before we go too far I won't let you take this light
Before we go too far I won't let you take this light
(Cause we laughed at assimilation)

Breathe in all mistakes without coming clean
into hobbling faith. No one I wanna know
(Go on a brush me off. Brush me off brush me off
Waltzing right into the bank)

Is this surreal tonight? Well go for all these wins
Is this surreal tonight I'll go far and I'll ride

They said that you have got a map of my insides
Purge, then binge, pop some pills and you'll be fine

Moments fade, we have come to place these hands on your face
hobbling into faith, he is alive, I have opened, now know...

(Remove the ribs if you can't lean sideways)
Stay back from our lungs (I thought my words would have mass appeal)
(Costs your life, sly as always)
Stay back from our lungs (I thought my words would have mass appeal)

Cover your eyes
I've stabbed you in the back
You stop this, I can't
Please stop me
Right here
I wont do this again
I can't do this, I love you
For all of this shit
Why, Why, Help

    General CommentIt's an amazing song, but I can't really tell what it's about.

    "Before we go to far I won't let you take this light
    Breathe in all mistakes without coming clean"

    That part is so amazing. The guy's voice is absolutely amazing.

    General Commenti think this is about 2 people that have just commited murder and one guy has no problem or regrets but the other guy is freaking out and hes trying to get him to come down and finish the job(Take the car, and turn it into our alibis
    Discard the body, pop some pills and you'll be find), hes also telling him what to tell the cops if they are suspected.
    towards the end it seems as if he ratted out the other guy who was afraid and he is deeply sorry for that bc he didnt mean to

    General CommentI never heard the "Go on a brush me off.
    Brush me off, brush me off
    Waltzing right into the bank" part in the song...
    I mean, it's in all the lyrics, but I don't hear it.
