lyrics

I wasnʼt exactly alone when she left me
Figured I wasnʼt unhappy to live with my own world
I tend to make my mountains out of molehills
Iʼve always made my goddesses out of you girls

And Iʼve always had the chance to say
That I never got to scream when I drowned in your sea
You know Iʼve always been lonely so I guess I just got used to it
But I guess I got used to dragging you down with me

So my sandcastle has been waiting for the waves
I carry lost love like some tragic disease
And I wonder why she never came back to put out the flames
But when I called her this was what she said to me

"It makes more sense to stay underwater
Itʼs not that hard to sing about being hurt
Itʼs kind of lucrative to write a love song
Because everybody else just canʼt get enough

Itʼs always easier to be victimised
Always blame the one who got you burnt
Itʼs kind of funny how things turned out for ya
Because everybody knows
The truthʼs just not enough for the show
Because everybody knows
The truthʼs just not enough for the show"

Well I'm aware I'm gonna die someday
So I might as well go down crashinʼ and burninʼ
Oh my Lord, can you help me out here?
Oh my Lord, why didn't you just pick up the phone?

Oh my Lord, why did you forsake me?
You know I carried my cross, I was bound in sin's chains
Oh my Lord, you just not listenin'
But when I was on my knees this was what He said to me

"It makes more sense to stay underwater
Itʼs not that hard to sing about being hurt
Itʼs kind of lucrative to write a love song
Because everybody else just canʼt get enough

Itʼs always easier to be victimised
Always blame the one who got you burnt
Itʼs kind of funny how things turned out for ya
Because everybody knows
The truthʼs just not enough for the show
Because everybody knows
The truthʼs just not enough for the show"
