Lyrics

I Collide

Written By: Repeat Offender

I'm in two minds about this whole thing,
I find no redemption,
now these words replace all the pictures.

Its a vicious circle, round and round and up and down and deeper and down i go, but still no one notices.

CHORUS
If i drive all my patience away i collide,
I might drown in the wells that i made in my eyes,
Here i go again, im lost again, again.
I collide when...

Not a shy man at 21 i used find, that passing time was easy alone, cause i was never alone.
But here it comes again, number changed, move away, pack a day,
the revolving door replaced.
I can't believe i've seen so many people leave - or was i the one to wash my hands of them?

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

CHORUS

The Collapse

Written By: Repeat Offender

i want to be the bigger man,
i want to leave this where it stands,
always forgive , but remember...

Warned from far and wide,
dont trust you'll take the ride,
i was the one..
the defender...

i saw from the sidelines...

CHORUS
I saw you collapse,
I saw your charade,
and im watching you lose your own game.

Was i just another piece,
a place to plant your feet,
i will forgive, but remember...

Remember who you left
and laid them in your bed,
forever the one... the pretender...

i see the coward in you.

CHORUS

CHORUS pt 2
I saw the wind blow a gale
watch you run off the rails
and fail
fail and fade

BRIDGE
Im somewhere else now,
you are someone else.

CHORUS

CHORUS PT 2
