jealousy was all the stars
like neon lights and speeding cars
and cigarettes were signals in the dark

promises were denim frayed
like sharpie markers tilt and sway
and kisses stolen, criminals would take

and come on (come on)
come on (come on)
if you don't mind, i'm trying to tie up constellations
so come on (come on)
come on (come on)
this time i won't stand for your damn insinuations

and you are not god (no, you never were)
i know you might think so, but you never meant a word you said
and you cannot see (paint all your own murals)
anything in front of you 'cause you knocked down all the road signs

alcohol is flavored scars
like knife blades drawn through streets too far
music and lyrics by the best of ours

tall tales are the brand new way
like candy in a shallow grave
i'm the stray that digs you up, high's all the rage

and come on (come on)
come on (come on)
if you don't mind, i'm trying to chase all your wolves back home
so come on (come on)
come on (come on)
this time i won't be left stranded here all alone, no

and you are not god (no, you never were)
i know you might think so, but you never meant a word you said
and you cannot see (only takes you so far)
anything in front of you 'cause you knocked down all the street lights

this monologue feels like an epitaph
but i'm sorry, forgive me if i laugh
turnabout's fair play
i'm here to stay
don't think that you can run me off

'cause you are not god (no, you never were)
i know you might think so, but you never meant a word you said
and you cannot see (beyond your tiny world)
where you're the sun and everything else is dead
don't call me when you crash.
