Count Me Out - Lyrics
Words and music by Angie Nussey

For quite a while now,
I’ve been living this life.
Hanging around
watching my friends die.

Thinking about fate,
finding it odd.
Questioning why
we’re existing at all

There’s some kind of spell
we’ve been cast under,
this craving for more
leaves no space to wonder.

This lifestyle I’ve chosen
has filled me with doubt
So I raise up my hand and say:
Count me out.

You see that fear inside my eyes
Count me out.
Well it’s time to say goodbye
Count me out.

I don’t care who’s wrong or right
Just go on without me, I’m sure you have doubts, I won’t judge, I won’t stop you, but
Count me out.

I’m not over the hill.
I’m not under it either.
I stand at the crux
like an underachiever.

I’ve watched myself shine
Gloat and then crawl
And realized none of it matters at all.

I somehow bought in,
to what seemed universal
living this life like it’s just a rehearsal.

Then one straw, two straws,
three straws of doubt
till I raised up my hands and said:
Count me out

You see this game I’m trying to win?
Count me out.
Well it’s time for it to end
Count me out.

I won’t buy those lies again.
What I once thought was normal
is now crazy to me
and I will not get down on my knees,
you can count me out.

Maybe you’ll catch me a little time later,
I’ll be a smiling old lady
in a broken-down trailer.
Pickling up cucs, and laughing with friends.
This new story starts
where that old story ends.

Count me out.
Oh these rules are overdone
Count me out.
We’re not foolin’ anyone
Count me out.
You see that fear inside my eyes.
Well it’s time to say goodbye

Count me out.
Count me out.
Count me out.

Count me out.
Count me out.
