lyrics

Do what you can to ease the burden of your guilt please,
I’m on the move now, you’re on the outside.
Who’s patience did you wear paper thin?
Who did you grind down into a memory?

Could you watch your friends turn into your enemies?
Could you watch your home, become a cold street.

I’ll see you on the way down,
Worn out and tired now, but keep your lights on.
Worn out and tired but your light’s still on,
Worn out and tired but your light’s still on.

Looking in from the outside
I saw your chance come, I saw it pass by.

I did what I could to take the burden off my mind but,
You’ve taken everything, I’m on the outside.
Who’s patience did I wear paper thin?
Who did I grind down into a memory?
Could you watch your friends turn into your enemies?
Could you watch your home, become a cold street.

I’ll see you on the way down,
Worn out and tired now, but keep your lights on.
Worn out and tired but your light’s still on,
Worn out and tired but your light’s still on.

Looking in from the outside,
I saw your chance come, I saw it pass by.

I saw the wreckage it was glowing brightly
I saw the wreckage it was glowing brightly
Who’s patience did I wear paper thin?
Who’s patience did I wear paper thin?

Wherever you would go, I would follow
Like smoke after fire.
Whatever name you’d take, I’d try to make my own
Like smoke after fire.
