lyrics

I told myself I'd live to gain by thinking on ahead
as it turned out I could only last a month 'fore I was dead

I didn't have the strength to read the book and take a leaf
I just waited for the fall to come and drop one down for me

venus, I need a plan
take me as I am or let me go
time to make a stand
to strike the silence down before it grows
out of hand

I told myself that coming clean would drive my demons out
then tell me why the light of truth casts silhouettes of doubt

they've killed me with survival speak, they've lured me in with fear
and they've led me down their stepping stones and now I'm never here

venus, I need a plan
take me as I am or let me go
time to make a stand
to strike the silence down before it grows
out of hand

I guess my death was merciful 'cause now my skies are plain
and still the morning comes to me, it's really all the same

and I won't have to think no more 'bout where the sun will stay
if you press your eyes up to the edge you'll see me walk away
