Running In Reverse

There were icebergs accumulating
Floating down the street
Offenders assimilating
And counting the beat
There were targets on our backs
Wreaths at our feet
Sweetest damn girl
You ever did meet
Unidentified face down
Sinking in the creek
Blowing your inheritance
Inherently weak
We never tried thinking
Before we would speak
Square peg round hole
Just needs a little tweak

What’s the running order
(Running in reverse)
Where’s the gagging order
(Running In Reverse)
What’s the running order
(Running in reverse)
If I came last
Then who was first

We were found wanting
Not what we want to find
Putting on a brave face
And pretending not to mind
Caring is creepy
And we’re running out of time
Hating is easy
When you’re spinning your line
But it keeps getting harder
The more you keep trying
Accidentally told the truth
In between all the lying
All the dull lustre
Losing it’s shine
All that we could muster
Was a whimper and a whine
