lyrics

Eternity, it’s such a damn long time
a long time for regretting
civilizations come and go
but he doesn’t see me comin’ — no, he doesn’t see me comin’
so tired of our history
so tired of our history

If it’s all just another story
if it’s all just repetition
if it’s all just a chance to inflict pain
then I’d really like to stop playin’ the game
I’d really like to get out of this deal
break this cycle
replay that hand I’d win the bet
Hey, who do I talk with to get my check?

Maybe I’ll awaken — maybe I’ll make my escape
so tired of our history
so tired of our history
if I let ya go do ya think I’d be free?
if I let ya go do ya think I’d break free?

What if death is not defeat? not the ultimate failure
what if death just comes and goes?
but he doesn’t see me comin’ — no, he doesn’t see me comin’
spin the wheel once more — another story begins
I try to push it away
so tired of our history
so tired of our history

Lift my head from the earth
shake the years from my eyes
I look past the broken wreckage
I find you there in the bulrushes
