Bedtime For Bonnie

lyrics

An opportunity
A loophole in his interwoven company, which holds to him
It buries him, so he barely gets to see his wife and children
He wants more
Oh, he wants more
Patience is a virtue, but only for the weak, so he grabs the reigns
And pulls the horse down the path he sees

Nothing's gonna be the same again
Strap yourself in cause the life that your living
Is taking you away
And It's never gonna change
Isn't this what you wanted?
Isn't this what you needed?
Isn't this what you came for?
No

A blown safe, an open wound
Can't grab the green poison that kills you
The buzzer's shattering his clenched teeth
And the Blue, it calls him from the street
"Are you ready?"
Were you ever really ready?
Ski partners all dressed in black
Push the door aside and start the rat-a-tat-tat-tat

Nothing's gonna be the same again
Strap yourself in cause the life that your living
Is taking you away
And It's never gonna change
Isn't this what you wanted?
Isn't this what you needed?
Isn't this what you came for?
No

This is what you get
Cause it's all that is left
When you try to shoot the moon with a double-sided deck

And tell me was it worth it?
Was this the answer to your momentary dreams?
A nightmare can become more vivid than you expect
If you let it
