Crawled across this glass -- Slept on these nails
Disappointment never fails
These bloodshot eyes focus on your flaws
Now reach for the shortest straw
Wide awake these nights -- Nightmares at ease
Now I've become an anomaly
Shortness of breath program destruct
Cotton candy framed a paper cut

Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back -- Back where it belongs
Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back -- Back where it came from

I swear on my mother's eyes
I had nothing to do with your demise
I'm lost without you
So let's propose a toast to the famine ghost

Open empty mouths -- All tied in knots
Memories I thought that I forgot
These stomach pains -- Strain of disease
Can't hear my prayers ignore my pleas
A mother's child -- A soldier's guilt
Smell the flowers before they wilt
Send a funeral wreath -- A folded flag
A yellow ribbon around a body bag

Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back -- Back where it belongs
Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back -- Back where it came from

I swear on my mother's eyes
I had nothing to do with your demise
I'm lost without you
So let's propose a toast to the famine ghost

Back and forth from work 40 hours til home
Every day the same this haggard life is my own
Hungry mouths need value meals
Supersize my future and these 18 wheels
I'm as blue as my collar and this bruise of mine
Hammer down Teamster bought box of pine

I swear on my mother's eyes
I had nothing to do with your demise
I'm lost without you
So let's propose a toast to the famine ghost

Pay it back take it back -- Back where it belongs
Pay it back take it back -- Back where it came from
