How I waited back on the corner
For you to make me see straight again
I could steal your heart in pictures
But I don’t think youre getting better
You swore that youd’d be alright but youre not
You swore that you’d be fine but youre not
Im sorry about it, just tired of wasting time

And I killed another one tonight
I can stop myself from crying
I killed another girl tonight
I just cant help myself anymore
Your dad swore you would be fine, but he lied
Your mom said stop calling nights, leave sometimes
And your grace never looked as good as it does in the daylight
And Im tired of wasting time

Its October the 22nd now
Its been three weeks since I saw you
Its October the 22nd now
Its been three years since you left me
For the road and him, oh him
Your dad swore you would be fine but god he lies
Your mom said stop calling nights Andy, at least sometimes
Your grace never looked this good this morning in daylight, god
Im tired of wasting time on a body that has no life
On rhythm that has no rhyme

    General CommentOn the recording I have, I'm pretty sure he says "Your mom said stop calling night Andy, at least sometimes." He refers to himself in a few songs.

    General CommentNow, call me crazy, but I think each time he says "grace" it's actually "grave's".
    Your grave's [grave is] never looked this good...
    I just think it makes sense, because of all the other death references in the song as well.

    General CommentSisky, a god 50% of this band's songs make the world okay again. I sit in my room lying on my back for hours, just listening to a mix of MO songs. Hours. It's perfection. And this song is no different. Gotta be one of the greatest bands of this generation.
