There's a shadow just behind me
 Shrouding every breath I take
 Making every promise empty
 Pointing every finger at me
 Waiting like a stalking butler
Who upon the finger rests
 Murder now the path called must we
Just before the son has come
Jesus, won't you fucking whistle
 Something but the past and done?
Jesus, won't you fucking whistle
 Something but the past and done?

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over
Why can't we drink forever
I just want to start this over

I am just a worthless liar
I am just an imbecile 
I will only complicate you
 Trust in me and fall as well
I will find a center in you
I will chew it up and leave 
I will work to elevate you
Just enough to bring you down

 Mother Mary won't you whisper  Something but what's past and done
 Mother Mary won't you whisper  Something but what's past and done

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over
Why can't we sleep forever
I just want to start this over

I am just a worthless liar
I am just an imbecile 
I will only complicate you
 Trust in me and fall as well
I will find a center in you
I will chew it up and leave  Trust me

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start things over
Why can't we sleep forever
I just want to start this over

I want what I want
