lyrics

DUMB IT DOWN

Another day without fiction, I keep it to myself.
I can handle the prescription, there’s no danger to my health.
For a second or a minute, pretty soon I’ll forget it.

I dumb it down when you’re not around.
I drown it out, like there’s no worry,
Every time I deny the truth.
I chalk it up to experience.
I do my best to make some sense
of what is left, living without you.

Tried to find it in a picture, to see where we went wrong.
Were we holding on to something that never came along?
For a second or a minute, yeah we never could get it right.

I dumb it down when you’re not around.
I drown it out, like there’s no worry,
Every time I deny the truth.
I chalk it up to experience.
I do my best to make some sense
of what is left, living without you.

It’s the one thing I’m not getting back.
It’s the hardest thing to lose.
