lyrics

What if they never came out to greet you?
How’d you think you’d be out there on your own?
Alone, just a livin’ breathin’ contradiction
You’re tall, you’re strong but you’re not fully grown

What if your watch just stopped its ticking
And you asked for help but no one would?
You’d search for new kinds of motivation
Counting your steps, tryin’ to force for good

No one proclamation is gonna lead you to the destination
No wonder she ain’t got your back
The secret’s out and you can’t hide behind your emerald curtain
Just one day closer to the heart attack
Just one day closer to the heart attack

What if they broadcast your confession?
And all the critics left you out to dry
You’re not unique, you settle for illusions
Try this now, you know it gets you high

No one proclamation is gonna lead you to the destination
No wonder she ain’t got your back
The secret’s out and you can’t hide behind your emerald curtain
Just one day closer to the heart attack
Just one day closer to the heart attack

What if you wake up cold and sweating?
Was this done to you or should you blame yourself?
She can’t provide you with an explanation
You’ve just discovered all your hidden wealth
