  • Hey
    I heard it from the state
    They told me you were never gonna let me get away
    And if you tell me fiction, you will never get me back
    I had to get away, I had to get away, ay, ay
    Hey
    You try to compensate
    You thinking with your one brain, watch you decapitate
    You show me all your letters and I should've confiscated
    Put my eyes away, and I had to get away

    Talking to ears that have been deaf for as long as I can remember
    A self-medicated handicap so I speak to myself
    And I try so hard to get his stupid deaf ears to hear
    That have become illiterate, I've become dumb
    Hey, hey, hey

    When I'd come through
    You were dark blue
    And I saved you
    From your darker days
    Born to
    Take care of you
    Oh, I thought so
    Baby, it was just a phase

    Hey
    I heard it from the state
    They told me you were never gonna let me get away
    And if you tell me fiction, you will never get me back
    I had to get away, I had to get away, I had to get away
    Hey
    You try to compensate
    You thinking with your one brain, watch you decapitate
    You show me all your letters and I should've confiscated
    Put my eyes away, and I had to get away

    Shut down by a guy I never wanted to kiss
    Not gonna hear this singing of this ringing triumph thing
    And I'm chugging along in a train
    And I'm heading the wrong way, and I'm a trainwreck
    And my heart goes beat, beat, beat to the music of this sad same song
    It's quite depressing, there's no fixing to the problem
    When you're talking to an idiot

    When I'd come through
    You were dark blue
    And I saved you
    From your darker days
    Born to
    Take care of you
    Oh, I thought so
    Baby, it was just a phase
    Saving
    Only made me
    Just a dreamer
    But I soon found out
    That the traintracks
    Were behind me
    Tried to warn me
    Oh, but my ears went out

    When I'd come through
    You were dark blue
    And I saved you
    From your darker days
    Born to
    Take care of you
    Oh, I thought so
    Baby, it was just a phase

    Hey
    I heard it from the state
    They told me you were never gonna let me get away
    And if you tell me fiction, you will never get me back
    I had to get away, I had to get away, I had to get away
    Hey
    You try to compensate
    You thinking with your one brain, watch you decapitate
    You show me all your letters and I should've confiscated
    Put my eyes away, and I had to get away Writer/s: Aron Forbes, Dacoury Natche, Jesse Rogg, Jillian Banks, Tim Anderson
