lyrics

Double up on the pills you take
Calm the nerves that make bones shake
The nights much easier when
You’re not awake
Hopeless romantics take a bow
the players and rats will take the crown
shitheads and scumbags
your time is now

and I suppose it’s just a shame
that you can’t see the beauty in such a vast and perfect place
and I suppose it’s such a shame
that you can’t see the love because it’s great, so fucking great

so if we make up for lost time
that’s alright that’s alright
and if there’s nothing on your mind
that’s just fine yeah that’s just fine
at last I’ve nothing left to hide
it’s eased the mind I’m warm inside
and if your eyes are burning bright
then just let those fuckers shine

the things you do they make me sick
but I guess I’m just used to it
it’s what they expect from me but
the cell don’t fit
you spin your lies so even you believe
you cheat you joke and you deceive
even the people as sick as me
we’re gunna leave
and I suppose it’s just a shame
that you can’t see the beauty in such a vast and perfect place
and I suppose it’s such a shame
that you can’t see the love because it’s great, so fucking great

so if we make up for lost time
that’s alright that’s alright
and if there’s nothing on your mind
that’s just fine yeah that’s just fine
at last I’ve nothing left to hide
it’s eased the mind I’m warm inside
and if your eyes are burning bright
then just let those fuckers shine
