Out of the Fray

This song is by Career Suicide and appears on the album Attempted Suicide (2007).

How long will we pretend
It's been so long since we could defend
Our action and intentions start to compete
They collide and lead us to deceit

The right way the wrong way
Lead me out of the fray
Extinguish this dimming light
They'll never notice once we're out of sight
Is there a good time and a sad time?
Is there any way to wash off this grime?
We try so hard to get away
But some things about ourselves we just can not betray

But it's getting harder and hard to keep track
Of all the eyes seating down upon our backs

I'm helpful and helpless
The cause and solution of this mess
I'll have to resolve to reside
Not get caught on the wrong side
Gather and regroup ourselves
Still we end up like files on shelf
Though I sweat, bleed, push, and scrape
Constantly dreaming up a new escape

But it's getting harder and hard to keep track
Of all the eyes seating down upon our backs

All the bits and pieces that compound
Forming this bulging mass that weighs us down
Sometimes I feel like my life is not my own
Letting myself be guided by a fucking metronome
And I just want to skip a beat
Is this really such a feat?
Does this need to be a test?
Why must I be weighed against the rest?

The right way, the wrong way
Lead me out of the fray
Extinguish this dimming light
They'll never notice once we're out of sight
Is there a good time and a sad time?
Is there any way to wash off this grime?
We try so hard to get away
But some things about ourselves we just can not betray

But it's getting harder and hard to keep track
Of all the eyes seating down upon our backs
