Away with words
Do you hold the microphone thinking it will do the singing?
It's just a thought, but can you find your voice?
Do you light these bonfires wondering if the forest will burn?
These flames will die but will you feel your joy?

You always knew the words that could fill out the pages
And before you lost it all you saw yourself as blameless
Away with words

How do you pull the trigger thinking that you are the victim?
It's funny how things play out in your mind
Turning the tables until you turn your weapons away
Your voice is not unlike a gunshot
It's smoking

You always knew the words that could fill out the pages
And before you lost it all you saw yourself as blameless
I never spoke the truth
But I thought that you'd understand
I'd keep you in the dark
I'd put your feet on dry land
Away with words

Light a fire under my skin and in my eyes
Let me float away
And on these tides our passions become one with
The blowing winds

We set sail when we thought we had it
Control was always out of reach
We never knew how deep the river until you anchored me down
So destructive, like water
And like water, these waves will wash away
