A Turn for the Worse

from by What Matters Most



Caught up again in this mess
Can someone get me out of here
I just get buried deeper

Oh how this guilt can make you choke
Stuck in your throat as you try to swallow
I know I’ve been here before
And it’s all the same

I lay low
And watch the conversation boil
Like I had a fucking choice

Take whatever you think makes you bleed
You are the thing who steals it from me
And now we both lay down and close our eyes

Bleed me empty, I’ll be coming
Why can’t you see, why can’t you see?

Times not on our side
There is no fire to ignite
While you swing my body high

I’ll keep my fear right here, and far from you

Why’d I wait so long to say
I know

I dug this grave to remember where I lay
And maybe some day I’ll learn not give myself away
