Cold hands, sore feet
You've been walking for an hour on abandoned streets

Weak knees, and fresh scars
It's a struggle when you're losing track of who you are

The words you stole won't save your soul
They can only buy you time

Light a candle, or curse the dark
It's all the same to me
Start a fire, or drown the spark
And shake away the heat
Tell the truth or live a lie
Just don't close your eyes

Let down, and so spent
You've been holding up the world with your good intent

Help out, like you should
It's a burden that you never really understood

But Caroline, I'm doing fine
It's the others who are dying

Light a candle, or curse the dark
It's all the same to me
Start a fire, or drown the spark
And shake away the heat
Tell the truth or live a lie
Be a burden or a prize
Stick around or say goodbye
Just don't close your eyes

And you're breaking
But you're faking nothing's ever wrong
And concealing what you're feeling
Always standing strong

But you don't need
To act like you don't bleed
When you come falling down
Cuz there is no healing when you're not feeling
Anything at all
