lyrics

Squeeze the arm again
You still feel a pulse
But you've got no mind
And you've got no soul

Was gonna say something
About feeling dumb
But I got tired
And you jumped the gun

I know you think that you're better than me
Saw you look twice and knew I'd pay the price
No I know it's not in my head I know it's true
Just can't believe I took the fall for you

Run for cover
The cat's on the loose
She's going out again
Tighten the noose
Louder the voices
The bigger the prize
Down in the trenches
I feel etherized

I know you think that there's no hope for me
But I will show you eventually
No I know it's not in my head I know it's true
If you're so aware why do you seem so scared

I'm ok
But they say that I'm slipping away
I'm ok
Gnawed the nails all day long yesterday
Not ok
This surrendering in every way

Meet you Sunday and
You'll bring the key
I know you find it
Obligatory
Jail break at dawn
I'll be gunning for home
Can't catch me now
I've got magnetic bones

I know you wanna get the best of me
This is a war choose your side hit the floor
No I know it's not in my head I know it's true
It's all right now I'll be seeing you soon
