lyrics

We're all wooden people walking by
Our experiences carve little nicks into our hides
We hold on to those scars until we die
And carve them into others, whether or not we try

So I am all my friends and they are me
I actually find that thought a little comforting
I think all my friends are pretty sweet
Even though they take their high school insecurities out on every human being
I guess that's just the way we'll always be
We don't let go of feelings very easily

Some people try to carve a bit too deep
The light that hides below the surface can be blinding
I think I'd like to stand up and be seen
And let the light that shines within me give life to everything

But the past has carved a funnel that all my problems fall into
I'm trying my very best not to catch you in the wound

School carved math and language into me
I'm everything my teachers ever wanted me to be
But now that I'm old, I've made my frame my own
Won't someone please just take a knife to me?
