Overtaking an Ambulance

lyrics

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

Where did all my patience go?
It’s right where I left it.
I saw a man in a minivan
Overtaking an ambulance.
Everyone says I’m paranoid
I hear them when my back is turned.
History is ignorance
And ignorance is some guy I met at a pub

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

We all need a little death
Tall tales for short attention spans
But now he’s just a dead guy
He doesn’t have any say in it
Open minded funeral
I’m glad you’re not my only friend
You’re free to live a lonely life
Now don’t you see it was freedom held you back?

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

Be excellent to each other, now
Those wise dudes from the future say
Now my brain is smarter than I am
I’m topical facting my life away
Is anyone still listening?
I have opinions on everything
But I’m helplessly crushed underneath
Those books I always meant to read

Leave us to our devices
Leave us to our false idols
Leave us to temptation
Then leave us alone

Then leave us alone
Then leave us alone
Alone
Alone
