You think
We can give you our hearts, our spleens, our blood
And somehow it won’t affect us
So you’re fine
And we’re bleeding out

And we can’t stop loving you
We try and we try
And you’re running and falling
Every day could be your last
We’re lying in bed, staring at the ceiling
Unable to sleep, wondering where you are
Hearts shattering a million times
While you smoke the rent and laugh and laugh

And you never see, you never see, you never see
The fallout
The tears that keep your boat from sinking
Are not the ones you cried

And when you’re through
And you’re cold and hungry and tired
You want a safe place to rest your head
But our shoulders are tired
From carrying the weight of your sin
Your life, your death and your pride
