lost in a haunting thought
spinning me around once more
i wake just to feel the way
as the daylight comes around i turn
with my eyes on the back door


your face is light and cocaine white
one message beating through
smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep everything you intended to say
don't go back on your words
you always said you'd tell me first


verse after endless verse
i can't escape the echoed words
i long to find a cure for the feeling i find in these chords
i smile as it burns


your face is light and cocaine white
one message beating through


i've been erased from the picture
excuse, oh no anything goes
excuses, you know it doesn't work
excuse, oh no anything goes
excuses don't work
excuse me this will calls out desperate
excuse me this will calls out desperate

smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep everything you intended to say
don't go back on your words
you always said you'd tell me first
smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep

    General CommentFor me this song strikes me as some sort of relationship probably a friendship that got Broken up to do someone doing cocaine. That that person just up and left, and Anthony feels as if that person should have told them before they left, and that there is no excuse for that person actions.
