lyrics

there is no way out of this town
i've followed every train track and road that i've found
and they circle round and round
i'm trapped in this body
sad, captive, and sorry
i want to get out and i wanna find the end
and sever my ties to the people i've been
and live a righteous life
or give a selfless love
or do whatever a good person does
to end up in heaven above

you put your faith into this fool
gave him a thousand second chances to start new
but every time he comes back
saying he would never do that
with a thousand selfish reasons
for the thousand selfish ways
i will hurt you

you know that people can't be trusted to be good
why would you lie and say that you believed they could?

so you know that i could be the guy
who loves you every day until you die
but i am probably just somebody who will make you cry
it's more than likely that i might be just a waste of time

my bones are scarred from things that i've done wrong
and you will learn to hate my face in time
and everything that we will ever do
is everything that we have ever done
and everything that i will ever say
i'll say with this song:
that, what i wanted for you and me
and what happened to you and me
are two very different things
and that difference is the reason every singer sings

and where does that leave me?
hoping no one will ever see
how worthless i am
