lyrics

Something about the way we die
Makes it hard to be alive
It just makes me wanna shine
But sometimes the light hurts my eyes

Everybody wants a knife
So they can carve the perfect man or wife
You can train yourself to love a lie
Like a bug flying towards the light

I'm a weapon of a friend, shoot to kill 'til I'm rusted
It feels like my lights burning out, so I'm just lying on the couch

Something about the way you smile
Makes me feel warm like a child
I can hear the movement slide
But it only makes me wanna write

I'm not what my parents bought
I'm not as smart as you thought

Became my parents only child
Now I'm just stoned all the time
They need me to be their light
But I've been glowing all my life
And I'm tired

If I am not my self
Then how can I be of help
To anyone else?

It feels like a lot of what a person is, escapes us
But that could just be me, projecting my own fears
Because I let so much escape me
I've already let so much escape me
And I'm sad for the things
I know I can't have back

If I am not my self
Then how can I be helped
By anyone else?
