4. State of Independence (3:37)
So I guess we’ve reached the point of no return
Only miles of empty highway left to burn
You longed for it, you followed it, you squandered it
And showed it no concern
And I guess that we were destined not to last
There were far too many scars left from the past
We meant for it, intended it, but the memory
Was branded on our hearts
And it’s over now

So you stand as the defendant
So silent and polite
But your lies are unrepentant
Like sirens in the night
And there could’ve been a way, should’ve been a way
To win without a fight
And avoid this state of independence

And you always wanted more than a run-around
Only I was never sure I could settle down
I toyed with you, avoided you, exploited you
As far as you allowed
But it’s over now

So you stand as the defendant
So silent and polite
But your lies are unrepentant
Like sirens in the night
And there could’ve been a way, should’ve been a way
To win without a fight
And avoid this state of independence

I don’t wanna lie, I’ll keep it inside
I’m not gonna fight or swallow my pride
Don’t wanna be right
When everything feels so wrong

So you stand as the defendant
So silent and polite
But your lies are unrepentant
Like thunder in the night
And there could’ve been a way, should’ve been a way
To win without a fight
And avoid this state of independence

So I guess we’ve reached the point of no return
