Shut You Out

Good Christians that wait until marriage for sex

Are the ones that keep secrets so close to their chests.

We all want a statement. We want to impress.

All I've got is The Lord; He's not at his best.

Yeah.

And I hate; you can't justify,

'Cause your money is God's and you're going to die.

I wanted to go, 'cause I want to believe,

But I can't ever find a reason, it seems.

And we've got it bad, but

I'll get it back

You'll see.

Breakin' a leg,

Taking your meds,

I think.

We've all got problems. How we

Just want to get away.

Our fathers pass in silence.

We'll find a place to stay.

You wanted apathy. I

Needed to make a friend.

I felt your heart beat through your

Letter you tried to send.

The world doesn't wait 'til it's time to

head out, cause

We'll leave you behind. Yeah we're shutting you out.

I don't want to go, 'cause I know you're naive,

And a bit hypocritical after you leave.

So look at me now,

I need you to know that I love you until you decide you can go.

You don't know ethics, your motives are weak, and I doubt Holy Ghost

Is looking for me.

Oh, you fell by the wayside.

Oh, you fell by the wayside.

I'll shut you out.

Shut you out.

We've all got problems. How we

Just want to get away.

Our fathers pass in silence.

We'll find a place to stay.

You wanted apathy. I

Needed to make a friend.

I felt your heart beat through your

Letter you tried to send.

And I don't know

What had bit me in the leg,

But I chased your ghost back home.

And you thought so

Up until the bottle emptied from

Our evening fights alone.

Shut you...

We've all got problems. How we

Just want to get away.

Our fathers pass in silence.

We'll find a place to stay.

You wanted apathy. I

Needed to make a friend.

I felt your heart beat through your

Letter you tried to send.

So keep coming home.

You shouldn't of asked if you wanted know. We're

Still by the phone.

This church is the last tie. I swear it's the last time.
