Lyrics:

I've seen them come and go.
I know your kind; you're the kind that doesn't stay.
Like a mirage in the desert when I am out of water,
You'll be gone and I'll be thirsting for someone far away.
I'll be drinking up my memories and mixing them with brandy all alone.
Time to pick your battles wisely.
I won't fight for anyone I've already lost.
Time to plan your exit kindly.
This is where we analyze the cost.
The world is spinning too fast,
or maybe I'm just thinking too slow.
Spent my whole life learning how to get good at letting go.
I'm trying to stay grounded, but the ground it keeps on shifting.
The earth is getting nervous, it seems mankind is drifting.
Children of tomorrow will be picking up the pieces of a wasteland.
Time to pick your battles wisely.
I won't fight for anything I've already lost.
Time to plan your exit kindly.
This is where we analyze the cost.
This is where we change our minds...
Save the world one last time.
This is where we analyze the cost.
