  • Wake up early in the morning
    I don't have the energy but i'm on it yeah
    Imma do it how they want it
    I'm a wreck but it's ok if i'm honest right

    No not too good I'm living ok
    Every day is the same yeah
    Oh my good god a sweet disarray
    It's how I handle the pain yeah

    So what's it gonna be then
    You're trippin' up while you search for a reason yeah
    Around again we go and then
    On repeat like you even believe it yeah

    So what the fuck do you think
    'Cause nobody's listening
    Got blood on the kitchen sink
    You watch it wash away
    Kill em' with vanity yeah
    'Cause nobody's listening
    A delicate fantasy
    You watch it wash away
    Playing with fire at leisure
    Feeling the heat from your embers
    Paying the price for your pleasure
    Pleasure

    It's not a mystery
    Little by little you come for me
    But it's a long game now
    And little by little i'll figure you out
    No not too good it's running away
    Every day is the same yeah
    Oh my good god is all i can say
    Don't really handle the pain yeah

    So what's it going to be then
    You're tripping up while you search for a reason yeah
    Around again we go and then
    On repeat like you even believe it yeah

    So What the fuck do you think
    'Cause nobody's listening
    Got blood on the kitchen sink
    You watch it wash away
    Kill em' with vanity yeah
    'Cause nobody's listening
    A delicate fantasy
    You watch it wash away
    Playing with fire at leisure
    Feeling the heat from your embers
    Paying the price for your pleasure
    Pleasure

    Ah Ah Ah
    You're running away running away again
    Ah Ah Ah
    You slip up while we play pretend
    Ah Ah Ah
    You're running away running away again
    Ah Ah Ah
    You slip up while we play pretend

    So What the fuck do you think
    'Cause nobody's listening
    Got blood on the kitchen sink
    You watch it wash away
    Kill em' with vanity yeah
    'Cause nobody's listening
    A delicate fantasy
    You watch it wash away
    Playing with fire at leisure
    Feeling the heat from your embers
    Paying the price for your pleasure
    Pleasure

    Playing with fire at leisure
    Feeling the heat from your embers
    Paying the price for your pleasure Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
