lyrics

i set fire to my house while giving good advice
to an oil lamp that's spilt and sharing all it's light
with my furniture, it's burning, turning the darkness bright
you call that a release?

instantly unshackled from the things i love
but i still feel like the world is a silent judge
with the gavel raised and ready to convict me of
wanting to be free

you didn't stand a chance
i leave before the dance has only barely just begun
but we had fun

you're hoping for a moment of regret
that hasn't happened yet
and boy, i wouldn't hedge my bets
i'm bound to be the one you won't forget

used to look into your eyes and see a fire there
saw a universe emerge inside your worldly stare
but flames burn out and weakness leaves the landscape bare
the deed's already done

there was never any room for me to make a choice
when i heard the passion draining from your tired voice
your words had turned from holiness to blackest oil
they put me on the run

you're hoping for a moment of regret
that hasn't happened yet
and boy, i wouldn't hedge my bets
i'm bound to be the one you won't forget
