Easy Way Out

lyrics

Cut corners with a knife so dull
It's leaving holes within your soul
His flesh and blood is cookie cut
From stale bread left in the cold

Like eyes that drip like empty coals
And shatter melting on your toes
It's over, only you can reconcile
The space and time that flows....

You're losing control
Don't lose control

Your muscles take you for a ride
So keep your eyes on the terrain
The rust and rubber cannot hold you
For that much longer

Fold your arms under the sheets
You cling to so tightly
I know the fabric's soft but it won't be
For very long

It's losing its touch
You're losing your touch

You can't trust your tongue
Even if it doesn't fall for anyone
I clicked off the safety on my gun
Cause darling I don't shoot at just anyone
You're losing touch

Claw at my skin with broken nails
Sink deep, I can almost hear you smile
The more it hurts the more I know you
Just want to feel close

I fall to the floor like an empty shell
I'm spent only you can load me now
Your fingers wrap around my skull
And pull me into your mold

We're losing control
We're losing our souls

You can't trust your tongue
Even if it doesn't fall for anyone
I clicked off the safety on my gun
Cause darling I don't shoot at just anyone
You're losing touch
