Stop casing the exits, they're still going to be there
Chasing away the remains of this evening
Let go and take the blame for an accident waiting
Stolen from men with their scriptures in hand

I'll stop to say goodbye on your last day around here
Shame just to notice things that are changing
Floods of applause and no time to be drowning
This bait is for taking and filling in time

Talk in those corners so far from my borders
Don't trust immunity that drinks to your health
Your eyes are away, I'll try hiding an iris
That's bet on reluctance to keep you in tow

We fed and enslaved and blamed all around us
Shame just to notice things that are gone
A storm and a warmth and a winter to ground us
Return to those men with their scripture in hand
