lyrics

I know you had a better way
Just settle down, it's gonna be okay
There's more than one path to a better day
It's coming soon, it's on its way

I know you had a lot to do
You had things to say, business to get down to
Sometimes it's work just getting through
Sometimes it's hard to try to talk to you

There's a fire in the attic
It's been burning all night long
We could run away or we could put it out
But we have to choose before very long
You're just talking static
And I'm almost always gone
And we could run away or we could put it out
But we have to choose before very long

In the afternoon I saw a tree
He was hanging out, he was living free
It might sound strange but it spoke to me
It said the quiet life, man that's the way to be

I turned my head and I looked at you
You were bouncing round like a kangaroo
I had to hold my tongue 'till I turned blue
It's a bad scene, but what you gonna do?

There's a fire in the attic
It's been burning all night long
We could run away or we could put it out
But we have to choose before very long
You're just talking static
And I'm almost always gone
And we could run away or we could put it out
But we have to choose before very long

There's gonna come a moment
Through the smoke and through the flames
When you're holding on with your fingernails
To the edge of a window pane

And with your arms fully extended
There's still twenty-five feet below
And you have to choose if you're holding on
Or if it's time for letting go

There's a fire in the attic
It's been burning all night long
We could run away or we could put it out
But we have to choose before very long
You're just talking static
And I'm almost always gone
And we could run away or we could put it out
But we have to choose before very long
