Vindicated

VINDICATED (Dashboard Confessional)

hope dangles on a string
like slow-spinning redemption
winding in and winding out
the shine of it has caught my eye

and roped me in so mesmerizing and so
hypnotizing, i am captivated, i am

vindicated, i am selfish i am wrong
i am right, i swear i'm right
i swear i knew it all along
and i am flawed but i am cleaning up so well
i am seeing in me now the things
you swore you saw yourself so clear

like the diamond in your ring
cut to mirror your intention
oversized and overwhelmed
the shine of which has caught my eye

and rendered me so isolated, so
motivated, i am certain now that i am

vindicated, i am selfish i am wrong
i am right, i swear i'm right
i swear i knew it all along
and i am flawed but i am cleaning up so well
i am seeing in me now the things
you swore you saw yourself

so turn up the corners of your lips
part them and feel my fingertips
trace the moment for forever

defense is paper thin
just one touch and i'd be in
too deep now to ever swim
against the current

so let me slip away
so let me slip away
so let me slip away
so let me slip against the current

so let me slip away
so let me slip away
so let me slip away
so let me slip away

vindicated, i am selfish i am wrong
i am right, i swear i'm right
i swear i knew it all along
and i am flawed but i am cleaning up so well
i am seeing in me now the things
you swore you saw yourself

slight hope dangles on a string
like slow spinning redemption
