Fake Your Fight

from by Ryland Bouchard

lyrics

Take off my shirt and run through the field
Cover my eyes and hope I don't fall
Everyone else thinks they feel
When they can't leave the walls of their home

Cover your eyes and hope that you know
when it's finally your time to let go
Cover your eyes and hope that you know
when it's finally your time to let go

Take off your skirt and run through the mall
Cover your hopes with credit card debt
Everyone else tries to own
but when they pass there's nothing left

Hide your thoughts to keep your job
the beaten path is a shallow road
Hide your thoughts to keep your job
the beaten path is a shallow road

Take out your lungs and run down the street
Cover your health with ways to forget
Everyone else sounds so smart
but when you're sober it's spitting fat

Mask your feelings in sane thoughts
and drug your perception until you rot
Mask your feelings in sane thoughts
and drug your perception until you rot

Take out your heart from everything you do
Cover the unusual with ways to blend
Everyone else talks like you
in a monotone voice they praise dissent
Fake your fight with flashy clothes
the path to change is the longest road

Take off my shirt and run through the field
Cover my eyes and hope I don't fall
Everyone else thinks they feel
When they can't leave the walls of their home

Cover your eyes and hope that you know
when it's finally your time to let go
Cover your eyes and hope that you know
when it's finally your time to let go

Cover your eyes and hope that you know
when it's finally your time to let go
Cover your eyes and hope that you know
when it's finally your time to let go
