Make it Out

Lyrics
Stop your hangin’ around here
You breathe this air like it’s poison
Why don’t you make your own sound dear\
You’re always just a prize that the boys won

Diggin’ up the landscape for lovin’
The shovel looks nice, but it don’t work right
All night don’t keep ’em in sight now
There’s no longer a sign here
That the world has survived outside these city walls
But I swear if you listen you can hear it call

Like a seed in the ground
Like you already found all of the love that you needed
Before you were born
Like a day in the sun
Like the first time you won over the heart of a stranger

Self-destruction and escape
They just aren’t the same thing
They just aren’t the same thing
You could never let me down
But I wanna see you make it out of this town

Stop your hangin’ around here
No more breathing the poison
Make your beautiful sound dear
Don’t ever be a prize that the boys won
I would give you all that I have
If I thought you would run like the city was under attack
No time for looking back

Let me voice be a sign here
That the world has survived outside these city walls
And I swear I hear it call
