Giving It Up

  • Clean, I think it's time to come clean
    That all I thought I believed, is getting harder to see
    And I felt nothing but shame, I felt the ground start to change
    Oh as we fell away, oh we've got to escape

    I feel like giving it up
    I've done my time
    I feel like giving it up
    This time can't tow the line
    I feel like giving it up
    I think about this every night, woah oh
    I've done my time
    I feel like giving it up
    This time can't tow the line
    I feel like giving up
    I think about this every night, woah oh

    Say what you mean, I'm a kid and I'm broken but please
    I'm not one to get down on my knees in the dirt, as my throat starts to hurt
    Infecting my soul but ill preach if I'm taught it
    Nineteen, I started to realise a dream
    But the process you speak of is flawed in a way, we're too scared to say
    You're breaking the record the needle decays

    I feel like giving it up
    I've done my time
    I feel like giving it up
    This time can't tow the line
    I feel like giving it up
    I think about this every night, woah oh
    I've done my time
    I feel like giving it up
    This time can't tow the line
    I feel like giving up
    I think about this every night, woah oh

    As I start to believe, as I'm chasing my dream
    Well you had your way
    And all the while, if we're starting to fly
    Maybe it's time,time
    And all the while, if we're starting to fly

    I've done my time
    I feel like giving it up
    This time can't tow the line
    I feel like giving it up
    I think about this every night, woah oh
    I've done my time
    I feel like giving it up
    This time can't tow the line
    I feel like giving up
    I think about this every night, woah oh
