lyrics

Open wide and taste the earth, we are looking right at you
To satisfy our greed, and respectfully, you agree

Have I lived a quiet life, far away from the outside?
Oh, God please forgive me for all of that time, the time that I’ve wasted

When you can’t live in the moment you find that all those minutes won’t stay
And that fall back to the surface will tear you apart, save me

Aren’t you afraid
To be in this game
Where nothing is safe
I am amazed by what I can gain
When I don’t abstain
From being wrong
I’ll lead you along
You won’t be the same
It’s for the best
It’s for my interest
And nothing less

Let go, it’s time. It’s time to move on
Nailed down in place, lift up your head, child, and face your fear

And if I had a say, would my voice be enough
Your actions spoke louder, but only for the worse
Did you ever think twice?
No, you were set from the start
Taking everything you wanted,
But when I asked for more
You kept me tangled in this thread
And built me a skeleton instead
