lyrics

DECEIVER'S THEY PLOT AND SWAY,
FASTER THAN YOU'D BELIEVE,
I TAKE THE TIME TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES,
NOT RECEIVED.

IF LOVER'S SHOULD NOT COMPETE,
WINNERS SHOULD NOT BE LOVED,
I TAKE THE TIME TO READ BETWEEN,
THE LINES I'M SPEAKING OF.

BUT WE DON'T SPEAK OF WHAT'S TO COME,
WE JUST RUN FROM WHAT AILS,
AS WE ARE MINDING OUR MOUTHES,
BLUE BABY QUEEN,
YOU RUN,
EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT IN BETWEEN.

NOT A SINGLE THING WAS LENDED,
YOUR KARMA'S JUST BEEN SPENT,
HERE'S THE TWENTY DOLLARS,
FOR THE JOKES OF YOUR'S I RENT
THE FUTURE DOES NOT EXIST,
THE CLOCK IT KEEPS ON FEEDING,
WHY IS THE TIME OF OUR LIVES,
JUST A PLACE THAT'S NOT AN EDEN?

YOU WERE GIVEN LESS,
WITHOUT THE GALL TO ASK FOR MORE,
HE LAID IT ON THE TABLE,
AND YOUR JAW WAS ON THE FLOOR.

'CAUSE EACH AND EVERY DAY,
I HAVE LOST MY TASTE TO PRAY,
I REFUSE TO PAY THE FINES,
TO THE PLACE THAT WE DESIGNED,
IN MY SLEEP I GRIND MY TEETH,
HOLDING BACK WHAT'S UNDERNEATH,
ALL THIS ICE BETWEEN THE SHEETS.

SARAH,
I HAVE COME TO CHANGE YOUR MIND,
YOU CAN'T DIVIDE A HEART,
WITHOUT THE CROSSING OF SOME LINES,
SARAH,
I HAVE COME TO CHANGE YOUR MIND,
THE FACT YOU'RE ASKING WHY,
WAS THE WHITEST OF LINES.

SARAH,
I HAVE COME TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.
