lyrics

I am the picture of careless and comfortable

a smoldering coal glowing hotter than coal can glow

and I thought it was strange how you claimed it was possible

to think you know something so well when you probably don’t

but I know you go where you want to go

I know you go where you want to go

what did you think you would say to alleviate

the persistent pull from the ground towards the outer space

when something just breaks its much easier to make an escape

than admit you’ve been standing in line just to walk away

I know you go where you want to go

I know you go where you want to go

I am the picture of failure to orchestrate
a healthier way to remain with what I can’t change or trade

white collar drugs in an effort to simulate

a feeling of falling so fast you can’t replicate

I know I don’t always do what I ought to do

I know I don’t always do what I ought to do

so what do you do when you lose track of where you’re going

stumbling around asking strangers the way to get home

and I guess thats my fault for believing what no one could know

and putting the things that I want under microscopes


but I had this dream that my fingers were falling off

you said it would sting for a bit, then the holes would close

but its not like me to just go when I know I should go

knowing the things that I know, its not probable

I know I don’t know you the way that I want to

I know I don’t know you the way that I want to

I’d leave it alone if I thought that you wanted it

I’d leave it alone if I thought I could stomach it

I know you go where you wanna go

I wanna go where you wanna go
