Front Row Seats To The End Of The World

Album: Welcome Home Armageddon (2011)
  • You never feel it until it's too late
    You never see it coming
    It hurts my head when you tell me that everything's alright

    I've tried to write something meaningful but I feel I've lost my stride
    Can't think of anything witty or flattering tonight
    You lie to me and I'm getting bored of this stupid conversation
    It's no fucking interrogation so quit while you're behind

    Open your eyes and look outside
    It's gonna fuck you up and leave an empty shell
    Dressing better is a bigger tell
    Your best lipstick for annihilation

    I've tried to write something meaningful but I feel I've lost my stride
    Can't think of anything witty or flattering tonight
    You lie to me and I'm getting bored of this stupid conversation
    It's no fucking interrogation so quit while you're behind

    Keep on closing, closing your eyes
    Keep on closing, closing your eyes
    Keep on closing, closing your eyes
    Keep on closing, closing your eyes

    I've tried to write something meaningful but I feel I've lost my stride
    Can't think of anything witty or flattering tonight
    You lie to me and I'm getting bored of this stupid conversation
    It's no fucking interrogation so quit while you're behind

    I write some words on a scrap of paper
    Tied it tightly round my little finger
    Can't think of anything that would make it worth the fight

    Falling slowly with the little numbers
    Every time I feel like hating someone
    Can't think of anyone that would make it worth the fighta Writer/s: GAVIN BURROUGH, KRIS COOMBS-ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES-KREYE, RICHARD BOUCHER, RYAN RICHARDS
