Count Me Out

 

Count Me Out
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
A bitter resignation ballad

Show me one more time the pretty pins stuck in your map
Pitch me your projections, share with me your stats
State your vision statement and your five year plan
Then count me out, out. Count me out, out.

Your bullet points are hollow and your preaching leaves me cold
I’d love to help you save the world if you could save my soul
But since you’ve dealt yourself the winning hand – I fold
Count me out, out. Count me out, out
Count me out. Count me out

Paint a picture of a brighter, better me
Help me help myself be all that I can be
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
Count me out, count me out

I’m wrapped around the ropes and my eyes are swelling shut
My back is on the canvas. Was this the deal we struck?
Is this a handshake coming or your final punch?
Count me out. Count me out.

Paint a picture of a brighter, better me
Help me help myself be all that I can be
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
Paint a picture of a brighter, better me
Help me help myself be all that I can be
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
Count me out,

Count me out
Count me out
Count me out
