The Tortoise and the Hare


I started out, I started ahead
I'll be the tortoise, you be the hare
While these waves are crashing over my head
And I'll save all I've got, for the end

You always said, you always said
You would come back for me; you would come back for me
You always said, you always said
You would come back to the start
Will you come back to the start

You always said, you always said
All this is make-believe, but you believe anything
You always said, the lies we read
Won't take us back to the start

We're wondering, the lion's den,
There right in front of me, Oh what a sight to see
The forfeits read, we're left for dead
Oh take me back to the start, will you come back to the start

I started out, I started ahead
I'll be the tourist, you be the mayor
While these waves are crashing over my head
And I'll save all I've got, for the end

So wade, in a sea of doubt
Wake, oh it's raining out
The sun will borrow and bleach it out
The chemicals in my veins

So run, where we can't be found
Away from all this sight and sound
The sun will borrow and bleach it out
The chemicals are what I've been feeling
