LYRICS

I could listen to you scream
Pretty music to my ears
I could listen to it all day
If you want me to?

I could talk about my world
How you brought about ruin
I could talk about your greed
If you want me to?

I could look into evil
See a heart just like mine
I could throw away reason
If you want me to?

I could walk into darkness
Find the hole you crawled in to
I will be the intruder
If you want me to?

You can whisper your Lord’s Prayer
And pretend that it matters
But don’t you wish you’d just listened more?
You can hide in the shadows
And pretend I won’t find you
But don’t you wish you’d just listened more?

I could listen to more lies
About promises, you kept
Will you walk on water
Like you said you would?

I could make you my prisoner
But you were dead men talking
When you burned the oceans
Like you said you would

You can beg for God’s mercy
And pretend that He hears you
But don’t you wish you’d just listened more?
You can drown in your sorrow
And pretend you were helpless
But don’t you wish you’d just listened more?

This was always your one life
I won’t pretend that it matters
But don’t you wish you’d just listened more?
This was always your one home
I won’t pretend that I’ll miss you
But don’t you wish you’d just listened more?
