If I feel my nerves slice open at the ends
When I sense there's something rippin' me to shreds
Another day; another massacre
Another page; another rape
Is goodness real or is it opium in my veins?
These paper walls of happiness don't stop the sounds of pain
I can't turn off all the pain
It keeps coming; all the pain
Eyes in magazines blank with pain
Tie me out where I can't run
Make me the bait
Bring it on; bring it on
I wanna sleep the sleep of babies in a womb
But even from afar I hear you crying in your room
There's a hundred thousand rooms
Hundred thousand wounds
Wake me up; drag me along
I'll stand and wait
Bring them on
I won't leave to save some artificial piece of mind
Turn away and make believe this shit is someone else's; not mine
Heart, heart on a sleeve
Yeah
(Guitar solo)
Heart, heart on a sleeve
Heart, hearts on a sleeve
This heart out on a sleeve
My heart; take what you need
(Guitar solo)
Ooh, I won't jade myself to make it through this life intact
Throw myself into the pain and dream
We all might make it back
