The Silence Of Our Now

-

Hurry, hurry

Out my mind

Get out, get out

Out the way

Now, never, is just a time away

But won't give a shit

Won't give a fuck

What's the matter with me?

Well, so what?

I know just what is so wrong with you

You don't have a clue

Don't have a clue

Now you fade like a dream

Out of my memory

Out of my memory

Sharper than a tool

I used to love you

You fell, but not in love

Oh, what's the matter

With there being a you-and-us?

I get no love at all

And how you caused that is rude

So rude and stuff

This heart that I have

Is mangled all up

It's ruining my vacation

And just blowing up

I couldn't love you

You just aren't true

But array me with fragrance

And just walk away

That time that you borrowed was not given back

Just like smoking crack

Did more bad than good

And that is the truth

So lay down your heart

And don't come back "at all"

In my town, if you've moved to

I don't want to see you "at all"

Don't walk over my walls

Anymore
