Promises
you learn to keep your distance
it's your best defense
and you never looked a bigger mess
an attitude
protects you from the world you view
but medicine protects the world from you

As though you had a good reason
as though you made a fool of them
they told you now that things are even
but you carry on the same old song
you carry on

Tell my why you ran away
what's the problem, you won't say
you're barely hanging on
from almost, always maybe safe
your family sleeps alone
but you're awake

Are you okay?
you promised us a reason
now you hesitate
and want to make amends
what happened to you?
the things that people cherish
you just throw away
as if you knew what you could have

As though you had a good reason
as though you made a fool of them
they told you now that things are even
but you carry on the same old song
you carry on

Tell my why you ran away
what's the problem, you won't say
you're barely hanging on
from almost, always maybe safe
your family sleeps alone
but you're awake
