lyrics

You draw a line under the title
“This is what this is called”
I have a limit, I have opinions,
I’m unprepared to withdraw.
A single Jenga brick removed could wreck the whole foundation.
You have a space, you have to maintain,
Total, utter control.
You put a foot down and then keep it down,
Until you can’t pick it up.
Until the roots have grown around your foot, your foot is stuck down.

You can draw any line that you like.
You can draw any line that you like.
You get drawn into lies all the time.
You can draw, you get drawn, you get drawn.
You can draw any line that you like.
You can draw, you can draw, you get drawn.
You get drawn into lies all the time.
You get drawn, you get drawn, you get drawn.

A stubborn step into a locked room,
“I’m correct, I have checked.”
You give a reason, like there’s no reason,
For me to argue with you.
“Look, this is my position, you can’t undermine my mission.”
With some respect, I just expect your,
Undying alliance.
I did a re-count and you are still wrong,
You’re very welcome to check.
Although I seriously doubt that you can read my writing.

A sudden reversal of mind,
To know I don’t.
To see your construction unwind,
And your throne explodes.
To lay your assumptions aside,
for one whole moment.
A fool looking up to a climb.
The ascent goes slow.

A sudden reversal of mind,
To know I don’t.
To see your construction unwind.
And your throne explodes.
