The plague
It came and stole my good fortune away
It's not the end, it's just judgement day
Crossed off the list
I must have some nerve
How could I show my face around here ever again

And it's not worth the silence
And it's not worth a friend
They say these things happen in threes

I braved the streets with 1, 2, 3 sheets to the wind
I'll see this one through ‘til the credits begin
It's worse inside
All the soldiers wives are wearing red
I hang my head on what could've been, could've been, couldn't be

And I was graced and forgiven
Now I’m given a second chance to fall
Given a second chance
And I was graced and forgiven
Now I'd give it all away
So hopefully I am safe for now

I'm to blame, I'll admit it
Now I'm given a second chance to fall
I’m given a second a chance
And I was graced and forgiven
Now I'm given a second chance to fall but it's just like the other ones
I know I'll just fuck it up

And it's not worth the silence
And it's not worth a friend
They say these things happen in threes

This is the dream that haunts your sleepless nights
You try to scream but can't escape the crushed windpipe
I'm so easy to attach, you're so eager to amputate
This is the one false move I made
That left me cursing the day I stopped at all to breathe
Pour yourself into this night
I've been holding out for this, all my life
Pour yourself into this night
I've been holding out for this, all my life.

    General Commentsolid song...don't really know what it's about though...perhaps failing relationships has something to do with it.
