I'll cut deeper into you with each careful incision
I'll cut away the tissue and excess pieces of you
I've taken up medicine and I've forgotten
What a full night of sleep means just to bring back what I can't
Just to find out that I'm cutting at the surface

And still I hold my head up high and tell myself I'll fix you
I close my eyes and turn my head away from what's left of you
I will not let go until I'm sure that you are
(As we breathe our lives away
We hold on to what we feel we can't replace)

There's no excuse because this life is in my hands
Though shaking helplessly, they must cut with precision
I hear "it's useless" whispered many times inside my head
There's no excuses, I'm responsible, not them

As we breathe our lives away
We hold on to what we feel we can't replace
As we breathe our lives away, as we breathe away

Just breathe in one more time
I swear that I could save your life

And still I hold my head up high and tell myself I'll fix you
I close my eyes and turn my head away from what's left of you
I will not let go until I'm sure that you are dead
As I breathe my life away, I hold on to you
