Lyrics

Make a bet with me 
And I'll make a bet with you 
A little guessing game 
It's all worth the same in the end 
We sat like gentle kings 
The table stacked and drinks in hand 
We have everything, we could, ever want 

What the wager was 
Death between cousins and the fate of all man 
No restrictions made 
The cards were dealt before we played 
We never had a chance 
Our time is spent arguing like little kids 
Instead of thinking over everything we say 
And when it ends 
It all depends on selfishness 
Eating up every drop of heart in the land 
It's so insane to keep eating after you've bitten your plate 

I'm coming home to see what my wager has won 
You know it's always such a bitter thing to face 
I get nauseous thinking about everyone I love, everyone I know 
Lost in a grey tidal wave 
Or a big ball of flame 
And it's thoughts like these 
That make me believe in something to count on 
Something to count on, count on, count on, count on 
I"m counting on this 
Baby leave the lights on
