Now we are fighting with ourselves
Are you going back for someone else
I heard her talk about success
But I cannot sleep I cannot rest

They can't escape what is their fate?
You try to take blood from a stone
Redirected lines past orange cones
My parents are freezing right down to their bones

How the west was won
How the west was won

Now we are talking to ourselves
