from The Bollands by The Bollands



You lay in a bed of nails when you saw me coming along
You used to be the best of us but you got sick of singing our song
You despise everything I am and everything I’m trying to be
Dreams and causes of things are running you out of the room
Your life was so much better when you were free without me
But you will never walk out because I am the one with the needs
Lay in your bed of nails that old chest nut does you well
Soon you’ll beat me, time’s your enemy
You say run
But I’m not holding on
Break your spell
Leave it in the background
And oh it’s true
The better things are you
You say the ways that I’ve manipulate all the situations
And cry till the tears run dry, but I was never holding on, you’re the one complaining
Rise up your self
That old chest nut does you well
And soon you’ll be free, but out of everything that’s selling, I’m the best that’s going
