Hey whatcha' say,
An empty day
Won't you be brave
You're everywhere
Oh you disappeared though

A grave mistake
For Heaven's sake
Ya did it all for Jesus
Did ya think it all would please us?

If you step outside
I'll warn you from your suicide
This pain in your eyes
Don't do anything
Just pray for something better
There's always something better

Oooooh, take you home
Hear me
Trespassing

Hey, whatcha say (what you say)
Do ya think you could stay (it's a beautiful day)
Did you do it all for Jesus?
Did ya think it all would please us?

If you step outside
I'll warn you from your suicide
This pain in your eyes
Don't do anything
Just pray for something better
There's always something better

Well I can feel it inside
You got charm and we both know why
Don't turn your back to the sun,
Cause baby babe your gonna burn
My baby's gonna burn down yeah

She tried to tell me... you know
Its kinda weird she's got her mom's...
Thinking back i don't know if it was the right thing to do,
But...
It wasn't enough to hold her hand
It's freaked up

If you step outside
I'll warm you from your suicide
This pain in your eyes
Don't do anything
Just pray for something better
There's always something better
[repeat]

Take you on ...

I can feel it inside
You've got time to make up your mind
Turn your back to the sun
'Cause baby, babe you're gonna burn....

    General CommentI'm not 100% sure but I think this song is about Betty. Con said Betty was a girl at his school that "something happened to". Suicide is what the "something" like is becuase that's a cardinal sin and she would need prayers to help her get out of hell for it. I think whichever band member wrote it either tried to help her or was dealing with guilt over not noticing she needed help before she killed herself.

    General CommentIt's about a girl who has mental problems and wanted to die. She's secretly thinking how the world will be so much better off without her. The guy who's narrating strongly disagrees, really does not want her to go, who may be the only person the girl told her secret(s) to but he does nothing to stop her, because she made him keep her secret and he did not want to lose her trust in him. When she dies, he regrets not doing anything about it, not knowing that her problem was as serious.
