lyrics

grasping at straws:

memories are like enemies who pretend to be your friend
tricking you into thinking you didn't do the things you did
and when the truth comes by with a pack of lies
and hands you all of your flaws

you're grasping at straws
reaching for stars
only to find
you can't reach that far
pulling at loose ends
like noose threads
ringing your neck
'til you're left
grasping at straws

fame's a fist full of little sticks you pick until they're gone
some are short, and some are sweet, but almost none are long
and when it was time to choose, you knew you'd loose
but just could not resist the draw

of grasping at straws
reaching for stars
only to find
you can't reach that far
pulling at loose ends
like noose threads
ringing your neck
'til you're left
grasping at straws

and now that you left us hangin' out to dry
it's hard to hold on, maybe i should try

grasping at straws
searching for god
gasping for breath
beating the odds
grasping at straws
reaching for stars
maybe i'll find
it isn't that hard
pulling at loose ends
like noose threads
ringing my neck 'til i'm...
