Like a tree you prob’ly fear the vine
Creepin’ into your troubled mind
So pretentious and never sorry for the crime
I’m rippin’ you off my skin and leavin’ you behind

I know I’ll die but that it’s for death
That’s all that I’ll ever do for it
Your grip on my arm is slippin’ off
And now it’s prob’ly time to quit

I know I’ll die but that it’s for death
That’s all that I’ll ever do for it
Your grip on my arm is slippin’ off

Woefully I greet that wheel of time
Regretfully I look back and see the signs
So relentless and ever proud you don’t rewind
I’m rippin’ you off my skin and leavin’ you behind

I know I’ll die but that it’s for death
That’s all that I’ll ever do for it
Your grip on my arm is slippin’ off
And now it’s prob’ly time to quit

I know I’ll die but that it’s for death
That’s all that I’ll ever do for it
Your grip on my arm is slippin’ off

I used to say
I’d never turn out that way
I wonder about it today
Here layin’ wide awake

I chose to stay
When all of my friends ran away
I never bothered to wave
I never thought of that

Late in the dead of night
Me and the moon that old busted light
And you’re that star that’s years and years away

(Solo)

Can ya blame the world for tryin’ hard?
We’re the only creatures aware of our
Mortal march towards the end, it’s why we thought of God
I made up my mind, I’ll live, completely disregard

I know I’ll die but that it’s for death
That’s all that I’ll ever do for it
Your grip on my arm is slippin’ off
And now it’s prob’ly time to quit

I know I’ll die but that it’s for death
That’s all that I’ll ever do for it
Your grip on my arm is slippin’ off

I used to say
I’d never turn out that way
I wonder about it today
Here layin’ wide awake

I chose to stay
When all of my friends ran away
I never bothered to wave
I never thought of that

Late in the dead of night
Me and the moon that old busted light
And you’re that star that’s years and years away

I’ma find a way to send you a note
A million to one it don’t reach you though
‘Cause you’re that star that’s just too far away
