Before Braille - Venom By Memory

lyrics

you wanna quit this. you feel like you wanna quit this and just move on. you're afraid you just missed the green light. though sometimes slow vengeance is never late. so bury your hands and wait. your moment will come. in due time we'll hit the state line. we're running away tonight. punch out the girl. you want to punch out the girl to set things straight. what a difference bruised eyes can make. punch out the boy. you want to just give the boy advice he'll never take. well this love can't wait another mile. we're risking it all tonight. we're above the law tonight. it might be the first time that i've ever felt alive. we'll go on our borrowed light. complain if it ain't that bright. no one here gets out alive. don't cancel plans for a false alarm. if it makes you feel good it can't do harm. but if you live for now the future is a let down. i've got the right to investigate. a sweet revenge has to fool the taste. we laugh about it now. but can i fit your crown. if not then i'll go make my own. you'll never know where you are. till you admit where you have been. sometimes i just pretend you're dead. until i need you again. you'd like to change your past. i'll bet you almost can. despite the pride. the fear. the selfish decisions. strike a deal. like a match. in your kerosene hands. the addiction is growing strong. and all your thoughts are soaked in venomous memory
