lyrics

This is my final statement.
I never meant for it to be this way.
Even when my heart was cold.
You'd still hold on to me.

You in that dress, you were a mess.
Give yourself time getting ready to go.
I see your face is pale.
Were you poisoned by ghosts?

This house payment, I can't afford it.
I bicycle while the cars fly by.
I don't care if you don't care.
Work hard for it and tell no lies.

Bite my tongue and grind my teeth.
Clench my jaw when I am mad.
When you know you can't be stopped,
you take a minute to rest.

You take the tone to another low.
You build yourself a barricade.
You seem ready to take a swing,
but I won't feel a thing.

This house payment, I can't afford it.
I bicycle while the cars fly by.
I don't care if you don't care.
Work hard for it and tell no lies.
Be grateful and tell no lies.
Work hare for it until…

Life. In. Circles.

House payment, I can't afford it.
I bicycle while the cars fly by.
I don't care if you don't care.
Work hard for it and tell no lies.
