lyrics

Crashing

I
Running around, I was a fool to think you’d see
My silent work behind the scenes of your infamy.
When the world came crashing, you were nowhere to be seen,
And the worst thing, when the world came crashing,
You blamed everything on me.

II
A heart, not half a heart to bring you round.
But you were always running from that inner sound
When the world came crashing, you were nowhere to be seen,
And the worst thing, when the world came crashing,
You blamed it all on me.

Chorus
The perfect scheme to set your rain upon my head
And now you’ve made that bed you will run on it,
You can jump on it.
Abandon ship while throwing weapons through the air.
But I could never tell if you even cared.

III
Fooling around, nose to the ground, your body in a vice
Of alcohol and lowly cat calls to your obliging wife
When the world came crashing, you were nowhere to be seen,
And the worst thing, when the world came crashing,
You blamed everything on me

Chorus
The perfect scheme to set your rain upon my head
And now you’ve made that bed you will run on it,
You can jump on it.
Abandon ship while throwing weapons through the air.
But I could never tell if you even cared.

IV
Dust is done, done is dust, darkness to be kissed,
Living a dream in a forsaken place where you are never missed
And the world comes crashing, but I just go on my dear,
Cos our worst thing, cos our worst thing happened,
And I didn’t even know if you,
I could never tell if you,
I did not know you cared.
