The Racing Rats




When the time comes
You're no longer there

Fall down to my knees

Begin my nightmare

Words spill from my drunken mouth

I just can't keep them all in

I keep up with the racing rats

And do my best to win


Slow down little one

You can't keep running away

You mustn't go outside yet

It's not your time to play

Standing at the edge of your town
With the skylight in your eyes

Reaching out to gods

The sun says it’s goodbyes


If a plane were to fall from the sky

How big a hole would it leave

In the surface of the earth


Let's pretend we never met

Let's pretend we're on our own

We live different lives

Until our covers blown

I push my hand up to the sky
Shade my eyes from the sun

As the dust settles around me

Suddenly night time has begun


If a plane were to fall from the sky

How big a hole would it leave

In the surface of the earth

The surface of the earth


Come on now

You knew you were lost

But you carried on anyway

Oh come on now

You knew you had no time

But you let the day drift away


If a plane were to fall from the sky

How big a hole would it leave

If a plane were to fall from the sky

How big a hole would it make

In the surface of the earth

The surface of the earth
