Chinese Whispers

Album: Option Paralysis (2010)
  • Lined up waiting for the execution
    Blank stares fall from out of trees
    Never leave home praying for the new solution
    Sick from all the indifference in the breeze

    Out your head down, you're tied up
    With a blank stare you know that your time's up
    Now you're lined up for the execution
    For de-evolution

    For the new solution
    So you can see the way that things are gonna be
    It seems like you've been running out now
    God knows you could lose some pride

    With an ego you could never even try to hide

    On your deathbed nobody stops by
    I remember when you thought you would never die
    With your head height, go to sleep forever
    It's your last endeavor

    Who could do it better?
    I know it's just a game to you but not for me
    And it seems like you've been running out
    Like you've been running out now

    Now it seems like you've been running out
    With fear in your eyes lie still in your bed
    Don't concern yourself with things left unsaid
    Your contribution is slowing progress

    You can't build something with empty promises
    Every second is passing by so fast
    Everything that you cling to will not last
    There's a chemical weapon made from all your broken dreams

    From all your broken dreams Writer/s: BENJAMIN ALLEN WEINMAN, GREGORY JOHN PUCIATO
