Asking

 

It’s not that I wanted this way

So I’m asking

And time it’s got a bitter taste

So I’m asking 

I know that the tide’s gonna change

I climb the rocks and I stumble on in vain

But I’m drowning this way

So I’m asking T

 

ake one for myself

For the road

And for good health

But it only numbs the pain

So I’m asking 

 

The edges have started to fray

So I’m asking

Choke every time I start to explain

So I’m asking 

I know that a monster awaits

I close my eyes and I reach in all the same

But I know it’s not safe

So I’m asking 

 

I took one for myself

Doesn’t everybody else?

Now I’m lying here awake

And I’m asking

Yeah, I’m fucking asking 

 

Don’t know what I wanted to take

I closed my eyes and I reached in all the same

But I’m drowning this way

So I’m asking 

Take one for myself

For the roadAnd for good health

But it only numbs the pain
