I was up to my neck in apologies
For the war they had waged over me
Two ill-tempered ideas tearing down the house
Guess I had been loaning it out to the wrong crowd

So there's another heart that plays the part of mine
Forgetting all the lines, but it beats right
And I'm off to the side, or somewhere in the seats
Just trying to keep the peace

Did we forget the cost
(something got me to give you up)
Of living good and lost
(someone told me there's no "enough")
Our loyalty's divided
(somehow took it to mean the worst)
And cast across
(if there's a reason just make sure that you get there first)

I was down with the strays seeking charity
Wondering if I could seem deserving
Couldn't see what became of the family crest
A realization my pride couldn't digest

But if there's another key that get's you through the door
You won't know what it was for 'til it's too late
'cause I'm diving through the trash
And there's nothing but belief all rotten in the heat

Did we forget the cost
(something got me to give you up)
Of living good and lost
(someone told me there's no "enough")
Our loyalty's divided
(somehow took it to mean the worst)
And cast across
(if there's a reason just make sure that you get there first)

Did you get there first?
(something got me to give you up)
Before the vessels burst
(someone told me there's no "enough")
And we offend the water
(somehow took it to mean the worst)
And die of thirst
(if there's a reason just make sure that you get there first)

I couldn't get it past you
The pain that had gotten used to me
While you planted salt like seeds
In my every open wound

The tireless glare of the brakelights
The collars that hugged us too tight
The crack in my caustic voice
Made a mockery of me
A travesty of what I tried to be

Did we forget the cost of living good and lost?
Our loyalty's divided and cast across

But did you get there first?
(something got me to give you up)
Or did the vessels burst
(someone told me there's no "enough")
Did we offend the water
(somehow took it to mean the worst)
And die of thrist
(if there's a reason just make sure that you get there first)

My head is going south
Just trying to hammer out
A less complicated route
To the wrong place
But I couldn't bear the cross
So I'm holding it aloft
Just auctioning it off
