You should have left well enough alone
Think of all the sleeping, out here dreaming of a home
A 30 year mortgage of their own
You should have let us stay healthy to work our fingers to the bone

You should have let us stay healthy to work our fingers to the bone

So what if it hurts?
We all deserve the right to die for something
But if they let you waste away on the waiting room floor
Just say there is no fear in this heart

You should have said you'll have to take what you can get
Instead of letting us stay desperate and just work ourselves to death
You should have let us stay healthy to work our fingers to the bone

So what if it hurts?
We all deserve the right to die for something
But if they let you waste away on the waiting room floor
Just say there is no fear in this heart

So what if it hurts?
So what if statis with a gracious smile is all you deserve?
What if the basis for care is what you can't afford?
You'll get a permanent place in a public ward

So what if it hurts?
So what if a place in my broken faith is all you deserve?

So what if it hurts?
We all deserve the right to die for something
But if they let you waste away on the waiting room floor
Just say there is no fear in this heart

There is no fear in this heart

    General CommentIts sound like a very political song, how the government or the system leaves you hanging out to dry

    General Commenti totally disagree, as i have "there is no fear in this heart" tattooed on my arm, my interpretation is completely different, to me this song is about going for all you can, wether it be love, friendship, a job, just generally anything that you want, and if you get hurt it doesn't matter because you've done what you've done for a reason, and we all deserve the right to die for something to me, means we all deserve the right to get hurt for a reason, and when it all crumbles down on you, just say there is no fear in this heart as in just say it doesn't matter, and so what if it hurts me? i've done this for a reason! that's what i think anyway...

    General Commenti think this is about the american healthcare system, specifically. if you cant afford to live, then you die, sort of thing.

    this would fit with the
    "What if the basis for care is what you can't afford?
    You'll get a permanent place in a public ward"
