lyrics

When the wind blows at my back,
I turn around
Because I’ve spent so much
Of my life just
Waiting to be found
By the consequence
Of happenstance
Give me a battle
(Suspense! Suspense!)
The suspense is killing me
Don’t call me ungrateful
I’m just nervous
That of everything I do
It’s all that I do not
That defines the life I’ve got
Well I can tell you

I’m not waiting
Til my bones get colder
Or for some fate to
Fall upon my shoulders
If all these days are numbered
Why are we wasting them
(Counting down)

Maybe I think too much
Maybe I don’t live enough
Give me a battle
I never look at the way things are
Too caught up in the way things seem
Caught in between

Well everybody’s got shoes to fill
And I have yet to find my own
But I’m getting closer
To something real
(Regrets! Regrets!
I wanna live with no regrets!)
My indecision is my disgrace
Too afraid to make mistakes
End up staying in one place
While days go by
(The gloves are off now
Let’s have this out!)

I’m not waiting
Til my bones get colder
Or for some fate to
Fall upon my shoulders
If all these days are numbered
Why are we wasting them
(Counting down)

Well you see, the truth is
I’ve never fought for anything!

Get a grip
Or you will slip
When your world starts shifting around
Will you ever fight for anything?
(When your plans fall asunder
Will your hopes snap like thunder?)

I’m not waiting
Til my bones get colder
Or for some fate to
Fall upon my shoulders
If all these days are numbered
Why are we wasting them
(Counting down)

This is the year
Of my self-distruction, baby
I will grind myself down
To stand my ground
(This time I’ll fight
For everything!)
