TIRED/WIRED

LYRICS BY KELL MARTIN AND DAN ARNESON

 
 

I’m holding off old age and death
With nothing but a lost hope strongly roped around my neck
Growing older
Going nowhere and fast
And we both know, you and I, that nothing lasts

And does it make any damn difference
That we matched interests and had grand visions
With us smacked in it, as we sat wishing
That we two would handle this shit

And all of the fireflies have long gone
And I eventually decided to walk home
And I have lost count of the lies coming out of your soft mouth
And who tossed who out

It’s always the questions
Never the answers
All the confessions
Never for the glad things

In the end does anything really matter?

I’m tired
You’re wired
I’m lost
You’re found
Too long
Too gone
You’re all
I’m none

I’m tired
You’re wired
I’m lost
You’re found
Too long
Too gone
Too long

It got too old
The back and forth, as we passed the torch
And watched each other fold
And who knows why we grow too cold for one another
Holding on, trying not to go under

Oh, it’s all the same
We weren’t born in pain
It wasn’t all a shame
You weren’t my ball and chain

It was my own fall from grace
Flat on my face
That got me sitting here recalling the days

And all of the fireflies have long gone
And I’m so fucking sick of writing along
About picking the bones
Of it being my fault

That we reap what we sow
Redeeming our souls
‘cause what I’m seeing’s not close
Even by far
And all of it falls
Leaving the stars

And the horizon builds up
And I leave it all behind

I’m tired
You’re wired
I’m lost
You’re found
Too long
Too gone
You’re all
I’m none

I’m tired
You’re wired
I’m lost
You’re found
Too long
Too gone
Too long

And you can promise the world again
And call my name
When you can’t keep a word you say

Just the worthless game we play
To toss away doubts, and fake that it will be okay

And all of the fireflies have long gone
And the night breaks as the dawn comes
And the cold touch of a lost cause not worth the war
What can’t grow by raw force

There’s no time for regrets
What we put into it is what we get
And I could change and be your savior

But I wouldn’t hold my breath

I’m tired
You’re wired
I’m lost
You’re found
Too long
Too gone
You’re all
I’m none

I’m tired
You’re wired
I’m lost
You’re found
Too long
Too gone
Too long
