“Time To Waste” – Alkaline Trio

by deadmanwriting on 05/30/2008

There’s someone down below blowing you a kiss.
They watch from their windows
As all arms fall to their sides,
And all eyes fix on the death of tomorrow.
And you found everything you need
To make a life complete.
Completely revolting.
And they have safety and relief for sale up the street
I see you in line everyday

You had time to waste, but I’m not sorry.
Such a basket case, hide the cutlery.
I had time to kill, It’s dead and buried.
You’ve got guts to spill, but no one’s trust-worthy.

These creatures are waking up in these dark trees.
Awaiting like vultures.
And eyes rolled back turned white in time to feed
A salivating hunger…for you, and everything they need
To make a death complete… completely unnatural.
They salvaged the lives behind those dead eyes
And watched you while you sleep every night and…

You had time to waste, but I’m not sorry.
Such a basket case, hide the cutlery.
I had time to kill, It’s dead and buried.
You’ve got guts to spill, but no one’s trust-worthy.
