Circle The Drain

Album: Yet to be titled (2020)
  • I needed to start running away
    We're no good, it's me I'm trying to save
    Treading water we're just numbing the pain
    Spinning round as we circle the drain
    Pick the pieces up and turn it around
    I bring the hammer down

    Walk out

    Somehow I couldn't say to you, the things to make it right
    The words just came out wrong and then we'd end up in a fight
    'Cause I guess I fucked up, messed this luck up
    And I blame myself
    But man, I gotta let it go
    Take a shot and let it roll
    Then I can almost clear my head
    'Til I'm alone laying in bed
    Thinking
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away

    I needed to start running away
    We're no good, it's me I'm trying to save
    Treading water we're just numbing the pain
    Spinning round as we circle the drain
    Pick the pieces up and turn it around
    I bring the hammer down

    Walk out
    Oh

    Between the cocaine and the lies
    The truth and alibis
    Excuses don't mean anything when tears run down our eyes
    All I do is remember, last September
    Sitting in your car
    And hearing "Man, I gotta go"
    And I wish it wasn't so
    But we were circling the drain
    But we were circling the drain
    Just can't change
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away

    I needed to start running away
    We're no good, it's me I'm trying to save
    Treading water we're just numbing the pain
    Spinning round as we circle the drain
    Pick the pieces up and turn it around
    I bring the hammer

    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away from me
    Get the fuck away, come on

    I needed to start running away
    We're no good, it's me I'm trying to save
    Treading water we're just numbing the pain
    Spinning round as we circle the drain

    We needed to start running away
    We're no good, we were just trying to save
    Treading water we're just numbing the pain
    Spinning round as we circle the drain
    Pick the pieces up and turn it around
    And bring the hammer down
    Bring the hammer down Writer/s: Robert Flynn
