lyrics

I decided to sit down and write our story
Before the fall is done
Replay the years forever lost
The ink on this page
Will stay to say
How we threw out opportunity
Rip the script in two

You've lost the right to talk to me
I just can't put up with your whining
It's too much to force down
Too much to hold on to
I'll play my own part this time

You've lost the right
Don't cry to me
I'm out of the fight I swear I'm out
I'm done with this war you've been fighting

You've lost the right
Don't cry to me
I'm out of the fight
I've left you behind
Don't talk to me
I'll play my own part
Device a new plan without you in mind

The pen curves and slides on the page
Who'll dare to read
Before memories lose weight
Replay the years forever lost
The ink of this page
Will stay to say
How I learned and moved on

Your way of life
Left me at war with myself
Everyday from my insides I heard cries

You went out of your way to fail
Look at you now
Trying to be heard
Among so many desperate poet's souls
A voice so unsure of where it wants to go
Why?
Did this satisfy you?

Have you an answer?

I stood on the edge
Eleventh floor
I swear you're not worth it

I'll find an excuse
To delay the jump
Or jump of my own design

I'll find an excuse to delay the jump
Jump for better reasons
