Confessional Tale from the Mouth of Redemption

My heart is beating from me
My brain's betraying me tonight
Images constantly flowing
I'll be hating you til the morning light

I'll waste tonight thinking of you
And him committing your sins

Tomorrow will be a brand new day

Two years ago, we met
Together under a selfish bet
"He doesn't love you, so come on with me"
I knew back then this would come to be

If someone cheats
To be with you
You can bet your ass
They'll cheat on you too

Something died today
I see its corpse lingering in the waves
It's the shell of us
Wrapped in a rotten casket of wasted trust

I fell asleep while
Waiting for you to come
Back from your journey
And you're still not here

You said he was just a friend
Someone to keep you company
And from getting torn down
From the rest of the crew

Tell me what you mean
By he's only just a friend
When you've swallowed something
That's sacred

No way to trust you
Nothing to say
To me, you're still in Europe
And I'm still here

No way to trust you
Nothing left to say
Because I'm pretty sure you're lying
When you say sorry

I guess an excuse is that you're still young
When we were your age, we were all pretty dumb
But even if I had a thought quite like that
You know I'd never act

You made me swear I'd stay loyal
And off you went, flying like you were royal
You swore to me you'd do the same
Well, now I'm feeling pretty lame

You stabbed me with the same knife
You were so afraid was going to kill you
And now I'm floating...

I'm floating home again
I'm floating home again

If you're really looking to atone
Well, it's time to swim
I'm back in this boring town again
Alone, and you're still swimming

I'm floating home again
I'm floating home again
