Lyrics

Caution advised
Death to surprise
Anyone better could surmise

Holding in shame
Being the blend
Of your dead pets and absent friends
Only just

And I could never make you understand it
When all your sympathy is secondhand
It's obvious
Because you're looking for a quick return and
You don't want to spend it on concern
For both of us

Not good enough
For me to trust
A worn piece of work
The worst of it
I swerve to miss
But plummet headfirst
Again

Hanging around here since 2am
Promising I never will again
Treating avoidance as some suspense
To let me down

And I could never make you understand it
When all your sympathy is secondhand
It's obvious
Because you're looking for a quick return and
You don't want to spend it on concern
For both of us

Hours and hours, of future lost
Not that a crook ever counts the cost
A war on wealth that never was
Learn the hard way and all because

Hanging around here since 2am
Promising I never will again
Treating avoidance as some suspense
You let me down

Try again
Now you've found
That I've left
You let me down

And I know that every time
You'll let me down
