From the album, Bleed American:

If you’re listening, whoa.
Sing it back, whoa.

String from your tether unwinds (string from your tether unwinds), whoa, whoa,
Up and outward to bind (up and outward to bind), whoa, whoa.

I was spinning free, whoa,
With a little sweet and simple numbing me.

Are ya listening, whoa.
Sing it back, whoa.

So tell me what do I need (tell me what do I need), whoa, whoa.
When words lose their meaning (when words lose their meaning), whoa, whoa.

I was spinning free, whoa.
With a little sweet and simple numbing me.

Stumble till you crawl, whoa.
Sinking into sweet uncertainty.

(Are you listening? Are you listening?)

If you’re listening, whoa. (If you’re listening, are you listening?)
Sing it back, whoa. (If you’re listening, are you listening?)

I’m still running away, I’m still running away,
I won’t play your hide and seek games, your hide and seek games… whoa, whoa.

I was spinning free, whoa,
With a little sweet and simple numbing me.

What a dizzy dance, whoa.
The sweetness will not be concerned with me.
No, the sweetness will not be concerned with me.
No, the sweetness will not be concerned with me.
