Darkness, Everybody

by Man Overboard

on Real Talk (2010)

I've been trying to escape but something keeps calling me
A feeling I can't shake the darkness has swallowed me
I can't move fast enough to ditch what has followed me
And lightning strikes everything that I touch
This is how it feels for me to be on my own
The sadness has cut me down to the bone
And it's so bad I don't think I'll make it home tonight

[Chorus]
There's not enough lights in your house that you could leave on for me tonight
There's not enough fights I could lose to justify how I feel tonight
And if this would come true, I wonder what's really real tonight
And if this makes any sense at all, then push my back up against the wall tonight

So try calling all your friends and asking what they have heard
You're looking for the gossip and hanging on every word
And I'm not mad, it's cute it's actually absurd
I can't believe someone loves me so much
I've been failing every test and late for the makeup
Left alone at your request as you do your make up
And I know that I won't make this alright before it's over now tonight

[Chorus]

And I know that this won't be the last time that I walk these streets and I hang my head
And I know that this won't be the last time that I walk these streets and I wish I was dead, yeah

[Chorus]
