his heart is in the ocean
her mind is on the train
there's boxes in the kitchen
staggered pieces of the frame

she was moving forward
devoid of every outcome
no cigarettes, no doctor calls
no sex or drugs or alcohol

we are who we are
martyrs evolved
we are who we are
it's a fool's medicine

they will nickel and dime you
they will, in spite you
this machine will run your life
this machine complies
you were looking skyward
like her, like you, like i was
this dollar's worth a million now
your dollar's worth a try

you know it's all a lie
you'll wish that you had tried
you swore, like all your friends before
you'd never drink from this cup

and we are who we are
martyrs evolved
and we are who we are
it's a fools medicine
this is where the lies begin

you know it's time to settle down
you know it's down
