Album: The Color Before the Sun (2015)
  • I'm just a toy waiting for
    You to claim me
    I want to make
    Just make you happy

    There's no future I see
    With you in it
    I just don't fit
    Not the right plastic

    Oh, I'm not mad
    Lean on me, man

    Oh, I'm not mad
    Lean on me, man

    How many times
    I gotta listen to your mouth?
    Go!

    How many times?
    How many times?
    How many times?

    Turn the clocks back
    To the way things were
    I never wanted to be this me (erase, eraser)
    Show me back then
    The kid before the man
    I don't think this me is who I am

    Oh, middle aged
    Bring me a crisis
    What am I worth?
    Does the truth hurt?

    Identity, write the tales of disaster
    Ease on the clutch
    Who gives a fuck?

    Oh, I'm not mad
    Lean on me, man

    Oh, I'm not mad
    I'm not, I'm not, I'm not

    Turn the clocks back
    To the way things were
    I never wanted to be this me (erase, eraser)
    Show me back then
    The kid before the man
    I don't think this me is who I am

    Ha ha ha!

    Turn the clocks back
    To the way things were
    I never wanted to be this
    I never wanted to be this
    I never wanted to be this me

    Turn the clocks back
    To the way things were
    I never wanted to be this me (erase, eraser)
    Show me back then
    The kid before the man

    I never wanted to be this
    Just, just erase this
    I never wanted to be this
    Just, just erase me Writer/s: Claudio Sanchez
