Feet For Hands

  • There were reasons to get out of my bed

    Slipping in and out of what you call life
    And it plays again and not seeing in
    And I can see him ending on a pale road
    And I died that day

    Makes no difference if they're open or closed
    When you shake my hand
    I'm a hero, I'm a hero
    And I'm dealing
    Yeah, I'm dealing fine

    I think I've had enough of all the lights on Earth
    I think I'm done with answering the phone
    I pour myself a bridge and now I can't go back
    I think it's gonna happen pretty soon

    Dealing for the longest time

    And I'm sorry that I've made it this far
    When you think of me don't remember this
    Not a slow wane of a blinded man
    And the faces of my family fade
    Now as featureless as an orange, as an orange to me
    So tired, don't let me go

    I think I've had enough of all the lights on Earth
    I think I'm done with answering the phone
    I pour myself a bridge and now I can't go back
    I think it's gonna happen pretty soon

    You ask, "how many fingers am I holding up?"
    I don't know what is taking me so long
    Let's get up off the floor and use our feet for hands
    I see double, I see double yellow lines

    And I can see us laid out by a waterfall
    Don't remember, don't remember me this way
    But what makes her so sure that there's a world outside?
    Yeah she really had me going for a while
    I won't forget you
    I won't forget you
    I won't forget you
