lyrics

tried to write you a happy ending
wave goodbye
tried to blow you a farewell kiss

tried to give it a sense of meaning
don't know why
all i thought of to say was:

when you've done what you chose to do
and nothing else is required of you
you're left alone with the words in your head

don't ask me if you're doing fine
i'm a phantom of your mind
i'm the principle of the life that you've led:

you don't have to love your neighbor
you don’t have to share his labor
you don't ever have to care, no,
if you walk the straight and narrow way away

the ones who knew you enough to speak
the ones who saw you when you were weak
their voices silent but you know what they'd say

the ones you see when you try to sleep
the ones you thought you'd keep
Well we all need rest at the end of the day

(there's no one left to wave goodbye to)

(you are the last man standing, take your prize
look all around at their unblinking eyes)

there's no one to forgive you
there is nothing to forgive

do you think i’d be fucking leaving
if I knew
you were still going to need me?

do you think i would go believing
me and you
could ever wrap this up neatly?

some of the endings to my nightmares
feel more fair
than real life ever turns out

some of the angels of my nightmares
try too hard
party’s over turn the lights out
