I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore

On pins and needles we are waiting for the fall

We count the days scratching lines on the wall

Wait in the wings at someone’s beck and call

 

No longer recognize the place that I call home

No longer recognize this face as my own

Somewhere, this fate, I lost control

 

We backed down

We took no for answers far too long

We felt those walls close around

 

I don’t want to be here anymore

I don’t want to be here anymore

 

I don’t want to be here anymore (be here anymore)

I know there’s nothing left worth staying for

Your paradise is something I’ve endured

See I don’t think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)

I’m listening with one foot out the door

And something has to die to be reborn

I don’t want to be here anymore

 

On hand and foot we answered every single call

And weathered every day like passing storms

But when they break, we will all be gone

 

Won’t back down

Won’t take no for answers anymore

These walls close, we pace back and forth

 

I don’t want to be here anymore (be here anymore)

I know there’s nothing left worth staying for

Your paradise is something I’ve endured

See I don’t think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)

I’m listening with one foot out the door

But something has to die to be reborn

I don’t want to be here anymore

 

The point where we break gets closer everyday

But where do we go?

But where do we go?

 

I don’t want to be here anymore

I don’t want to be here anymore

 

I don’t want to be here anymore (be here anymore)

I know there’s nothing left worth staying for

Your paradise is something I’ve endured

See I don’t think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)

I’m listening with one foot out the door

But something has to die to be reborn

I don’t want to be here anymore

(We need to let go)

Anymore

(We need a better way)

(We need to let go)
