The invention of the ship
Was the invention of the shipwreck
I tried to find out who I was by jumping of the deck
I intentionally clipped the intervention like a trip wire
Picked a color, tried to bribe the bygone back into its bed

I don’t, I won’t, I don’t choose you

Underneath the Christian court
There was this saying in the bricks
That you don’t determine greatness
By a man’s intelligence
No you won’t determine greatness
Till you really start to dig
And you find out all those empty things
That he lets discourage him

I don’t, I won’t, I don’t choose
I don’t, I won’t, I don’t choose you

I tried to walk away
You broke the cast and tried to say
“I am not the man you knew, I am not the man you choose”
So you’re back to back a wasted age
I tried to plead, you tried to pray
“I am not the man you knew, I am not the man you choose”

I don’t, I won’t, I don’t choose
I don’t, I won’t, I don’t choose you


HOPE version lyrics

The intention of your trip
Was to intentionally wreck
I tried to talk you off the ledge
But pushed you off the deck

Interventionally tripped you
Like some unsuspecting fly
In the moment you transformed
And claimed: I never hurt a fly

I don't
I won't
I don't
Choose

It was there we made a promise
So we let you talk out loud
The entire room accepted
That it had to happen now

And I wanted to accept
The way your brain could never be
I want a reset in your mind
I want a different human being

I don't
I won't
I don't
Choose

Nobody said it was logical to try and do it
A list of reasons long as I choose

Go back, don't waste away
You tried to leave, you gotta stay
You are not the man we knew
You are not the man we choose

Relax and face the modern age
You have no right, you lost your say
You are not the man you choose
You are not the man you lose

I don't
I won't
I don't
Choose

Nobody said it was logical to try and do it
List of reasons long as I choose
