lyrics

I can’t find the words
that I can live by.

I just edit the script
when it goes awry.

It’s okay, it’s alright,
we’ll find our way tonight.

And tomorrow we’ll undo
everything we said we’d do.

But something will have to
take root someday soon.

Can’t make up my mind
what is worth my time?

No, we will not fail
though our plan’s derailed.
Redirect the sail,
calibrate the scale.

It’s alright, it’s okay,
there’s always another way.

Before you die
what’ll you miss?
What’ll it take
to rot in bliss?

We can be the buffer
between what we’ll suffer,
we can soften the blows
so it’s not all dread and woe

and misery.
I have already
wasted so much time
harping on the grief.

“It’s okay” is just what we say
when we’ve lost our way.

Can we take the reins?
Is it all in vain?

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

Driving myself crazy
trying to decide lately.

Toss it about
you’ll figure it out,
living in a limbo
of profound doubt.

I don’t want to
open that door,
closing all the others
forever more.

Sooner or later
you’ll have to choose,
or someone else will
do so for you.

Before you die
what will you miss?
What will it take
to rot in bliss?

Toss it about
you’ll figure it out,
living in a limbo
of profound doubt.

I can’t get it right,
think I might toss it,
make it end, start again.

I can’t wait it out anymore.
I know what I got
and what I want.

Whoah, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

Driving myself crazy
trying to decide lately.

Whoah, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
