Songs > Piranhas > Lyrics

Turn your back in a forfeit way
Take out loans no one could pay

This reddish glint it gleams on black
Clings like piranhas to your back

Is this that trivial to you
It's not impossible to lose your grip
It's foolish things that people do
I understand I'm guilty too

If only for a moment I could stop the wheels from spinning
Would everything I've broken finally start to feel forgiving
You think all those things are worth your while
Are they waiting or just startin’ to pile up
If only for a moment I could stop the wheels from spinning

It's so informal at the seams
Remains too difficult to reach
Feels like it clogs my arteries
As we get stuck somewhere between
I'm not suggesting we give in
Or reconsider where we've been
This distance seems so commonplace
Apologizing to save face
To save face

If only for a moment I could stop the wheels from spinning
Would everything I've broken finally start to feel forgiving
You think all those things are worth your while
Are they waiting or just startin’ to pile up
If only for a moment I could stop the wheels from spinning
