lyrics

The traction on my shoes have been worn down to a fraction of what they've used to be.
So I can no longer hold my ground against your onslaught of insults.
I hope you're pleased with your results.

The insole of my shoe has so much more of a soul than me
You took away so much, there is so little left for me to keep.

So here's to the sun; rise my best friend, my greatest adversary.
I'll curse you for all the nights of sleep that you stole from me.
And I'll call the cops on you and you'll run away, just so you can rise another day.
Much to my dismay.

They say what goes around comes around to get you in the end
I can't believe I ever had the nerve to call you my friend.
Cause if you been treating all your friends the way that you've been treating me. I hope they all just get up and leave.

Sometimes you have to take a step back so you can view the big picture,
but you can't view the whole photo with me burning holes right through it.
I kept taking steps back until you were out of sight.
I hoped and guessed you'd let me leave and I was right.

So here's to the sun; rise my best friend, my greatest adversary.
I'll curse you for all the nights of sleep that you stole from me.
And I'll call the cops on you and you'll run away, just so you can rise another day.
Much to my dismay.

Much to my dismay.

I guess I was the special case
I wish I could've seen the look that was plastered on my face.
But I saw yours and it just made my night.
We stayed up all night, we wrote this.

So here's to the sun; rise my best friend, my greatest adversary.
I'll curse you for all the nights of sleep that you stole from me.
And I'll call the cops on you and you'll run away, just so you can rise another day.
Much to my dismay.
