Couldn’t keep our feet off grass,
couldn’t stop the sky from turning black.
Like we were twenty-two.

Then the rain began to fall
in a day it covered up us all
when we were twenty-three

You know that you can
take what you need.
just don’t love,
what you leave.

some of us we learned to swim
climbed our way up and covered up our sins
like we had days to go.

But nothing is forgotten while the circle never breaks
The rain will never wash away the evil from this place
so wipe that dirty smile off your face.

couldn’t keep our feet off grass
couldn’t keep our sky from turning black,
but we’re not twenty two.

Don't forget to learn to swim,
the water now, it reaches to your chin,
and there's nowhere left to go.
