You can count it out on your hands
Bite your lip and let it bleed
You can pour it out onto the ground
Tell me you'll never leave
Tell me you'll never leave

Turn sideways and disappear
Show me all your teeth
And I won't eat a thing when I get home
Too scared to ever leave
Too scared to ever leave

You, you're a spinning wheel, but you won't go
And I, I'm a shitty deal, but I won't go
Fuck off and tell me you don't love her
Tough luck, she's nothing but a failure
But she won't go
So I won't go

And are you thinking of your kid?
Or are you thinking about him?
My hands are cut, your hands are cut
So why can't we look at them?

You, you're a spinning wheel, but you won't go
And I, I'm a shitty deal, but I won't go
Fuck off and tell me you don't love her
Tough luck, she's nothing but a failure
But she won't go

    Song Meaning"Turn sideways and disappear."
    "I'm pretty sure this was supposed to be a nice little acoustic number that ebbed and flowed and meandered it's way through to the end; until the band got to it. One of my all time favourite things is to bring a song to the band and have them completely flip it on it's head. This was one of those. Also, funny story (kind of): I could've sworn that I thought up all by myself the lyric "Tough luck, she's nothing but a failure", but after listening to 'How To Taste' by Violent Soho, I was, evidently, full of shit. I messaged Luke (Boerdam) straight away letting him know there's still time to change it if he felt weird about it. He was cool. He said, "Don't sweat it my man, you're a great songwriter and a cool guy and have lots of friends and we've all ripped off someone somewhere along the way." or something like that. I can't really remember, it was a while ago... Maybe I should stop saying 'funny story', before I tell that story, huh?"
