backfire lyrics – mutemath

“backfire”

please tell me,
why are we,
trying so hard.

why worry,
it’s over,
we always fall right back,
to where we start.

there goes another one of our,
sure-fire plans,
it backfired again,
we try to think it through,
the best that we can,
i bet it’s gonna backfire again.

take what its,
given you,
how does that sound,
everything is,
all thought through,
and fool-proof,
now watch it all,
crumble down,
and down again.

there goes another one of our,
sure-fire plans,
it backfired again,
we try to think it through,
the best that we can,
i bet it’s gonna backfire again!,
backfire again,
it’s gonna backfire again!.

knives dont carry,
laws that vary,
they’re just what we fought on,
save me coffin,
scars are talking,
tell us where we are,
(where we are now)
where we are now,
(where we are now)
where we are now,
they ah! a ah! a ah! talking,
they ah! they ah,!
were telling them a story!.

there goes another one of our,
sure-fire plans,
it backfired again,
(sure-fire plans)
we try to think it through,
(yeah yeah oh!)
the best that we can,
i bet it’s gonna backfire again!,
(a ah! backfired again).

there goes another one of our,
sure-fire plans,
(sure-fire plans)
it backfired again,
we try to think it through,
the best the we can,
(backfired again!)
i bet it’s gonna backfire again.
