Slip out the back before they know you were there And at the worst you'll see nobody cares Cos you dont wana be around when it all goes down Even heroes know when to be scared Slip out the back before they know you were there And at the worst you'll see nobody cares Cos you dont wana be around when it all goes down Even heroes know when to be scared I dont remember where i met him or remember his name But he walked funny like he was just too big for his frame Just over five foot but he weighed a buck fifty And what he said seemed so right it stuck with me Listen its like poker you can play your best But you got to know when to fold your cards and take a rest And know when to hold your cards and hold your breath And hope that nobody else is stacking the deck because I dont need to tell you that life isnt fair, it doesnt care It arbitrarily cuts off your air, and like you i want someone to say its okay But in the truest parts of our hearts everybody's afraid But just underappreciated and overwhelmed Fighting so hard to hide our fear that were scaring ourselves You understand when im saying that you always did But its different in the words of a cowardly kid Slip out the back before they know you were there And at the worst you'll see nobody cares Cos you dont wana be around when it all goes down Even heroes know when to be scared Slip out the back before they know you were there And at the worst you'll see nobody cares Cos you dont wana be around when it all goes down Even heroes know when to be scared Im no hero, you remember how i was, you know All i ever did was worry, feeling out of control To the point where everything was going end over end Im spinning around in circles again This is where you come in All of this to explain to you why I had to separate myself away from yesterday's life Please remember this isn't how i hoped it would be But i had to protect you from me Thats why i slipped out the back before you knew i was there I know you felt unprepared But every single time i was around i just bring you down And i could tell that it was time to be scared Thats why i slipped out the back before you knew i was there And i know the way i left wasnt fair I didnt want to be around just to bring you down Im not a hero but dont think i didnt care
