    Go your way
    I'll take the long way 'round
    I'll find my own way down
    As I should

    And hold your gaze
    There's coke in the Midas touch
    A joke in the way that we rust
    And breathe again

    And you'll find loss
    And you'll fear what you found
    When weather comes
    Tearing down

    There'll be oats in the water
    There'll be birds on the ground
    There'll be things you never asked her
    Oh how they tear at you now

    Go your way
    I'll take the long way 'round
    I'll find my own way down
    As I should

    And hold your gaze
    There's coke in the Midas touch
    A joke in the way that we rust
    And breathe again

    And you'll find loss
    And you'll fear what you found
    When weather comes
    Tearing down

    There'll be oats in the water
    There'll be birds on the ground
    There'll be things you never asked her
    Oh how they tear at you now
