I feel like I've seen this place before.
Thoughts twisting like a vice grip on the tip of my tongue.
It's the dark that's tempting; drink it down, it takes me.
These scattered lines and 'one more time's won't take us back to where we belong.
I can't convince myself.
Black bleeds right through that painted face.
Look at me now.
As the fuse gets shorter; backed up in this corner.
But you insist - it's just for fun, it's just for fun.
We know, we know how this plays out,
But I can tell you that it won't be easy.
Your honesty is fading like the drink wedged in your hand.
Take all my pride, take all my doubt,
Choke them down with amber, wash them clean,
With an empty glass of all I'm worth.
Tonight I swear I'll let go.
You are such a waste of time.
Take a step back.
Temptation buries me again, and I've got my head deep in the sand.
As darkness glides across the floor, I'll go and drink it down,
Farther. Drink it down farther.
Nowhere, this conversation gets us nowhere.
