We were doomed from the start
As lovers are
Why am I doing this?
Digging my own grave
though it's shallow
I would lie in it
Work down in the basement
in the dark
after we crash your car
Hoping fast that the arrow hits the mark
so you know who we are

Please keep the reporters at bay
This is a matter of life and death, but I deal with things like this every day
Please keep the reporters at bay
You never do what I tell you to
You never do what I say

We've been hurting a long time
trying hard for this
We all have sizable scars
We got it
You'd break it all apart
We got it
We can make it work like this, like this, like this

Yes we are a bullet in the heart
and the message is sent
Always dragging your feet on the sand and the hot cement
Make a list of your favorites, write it down, make it legible
A problem we're always facing, we never rest
You either push or pull

Please keep the crowd under control
This is a matter of life and death and we're not prepared, we just want you to know
Please keep the crowd under control
This is the weight of my conscience
This is our all time low

We've been hurting a long time
trying hard for this
We all have sizable scars
We got it
You'd break it all apart
We got it
We can make it work like this, like this, like this

I see my baby
She's starry eyed
I feel my bones break all the time
I see my baby
She's starry eyed
She follows
Don't call me a god

I see my baby
She's starry eyed
I feel my bones break all the time
I see my baby
She's starry eyed
She follows
Don't call me a god

We've been hurting a long time
trying hard for this
We all have sizable scars
We got it
You'd break it all apart
We got it
We can make it work like this, like this, like this

We've been hurting a long time
trying hard for this
We all have sizable scars
We got it
You'd break it all apart
We got it
We could make it work like this, like this, like this

    General CommentI have the Beer: The Movie sound track and on the cd its really "Good To Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have To Do Is Die" which I found confusing. But hey, I guess they can do what they want.
