Lyrics

VERSE 1

I live a chemical life I'm on a mission to try

You went insane for the day I'll have to shove it away

My only option is gone smile as they break and they fall

You want a simpler life you can't erase what was mine

PRE CHORUS

You must be out of your mind, it was a simple design

You fuck it up everytime, how could you leave me behind

CHORUS

It's alright, It's alright

Cause I know what you want, but you'll just have to wait

If I had it to give I would give it away

I'm living it up while I'm falling from grace

There's no way, there's no way, that I'm running away

VERSE 2

I'm used to making it worse, made up of four letter words

You want to know what it was, no isolated and gone

You fall apart at the seams, I'll never know what it means

Try not to pull it apart, you're aiming straight for the heart

PRE CHORUS

You must be out of your mind, it was a simple design

You fuck it up everytime, how could you leave me behind

CHORUS

It's alright, It's alright

Cause I know what you want, but you'll just have to wait

If I had it to give I would give it away

I'm living it up while I'm falling from grace

There's no way, there's no way, that I'm running away

VERSE 3

You had to be the worst for me, I dont' know what to say so let me be

And now I find, you've left me behind, I don't know what to say so nevermind

YOU'RE MINE!  

CHORUS

It's alright, It's alright

Cause I know what you want, but you'll just have to wait

If I had it to give I would give it away

I'm living it up while I'm falling from grace

There's no way, there's no way, that I'm running away

There's no way, there's no way that I'm running away

There's no way, there's no way, that I'm running away
