Driving by those trucker stops
The cheap motels made of concrete rocks
With a hole inside your chest
The size of a city block
And I remember the day
When you said you weren't afraid to die
I don't think you're brave for it
I just think you're more afraid of being alive

If I had the medicine
I'd give you the medicine
Cause I miss you son
I'd bring you back home if I was the one
But it's four and ten
In the belly of the four AM
And you're staring down the weekend
To silence the pain
And I'm wide awake
And there's blood on the promenade

Here's to waking up with that stone between your ribs
And you're lying down again
You just pretend you don't know what it is
When everyone around you says that you're not the one to blame for it
But you're the only one feeling the pain for it
So you're gonna take matters into your own hands

If I had the medicine
I'd give you the medicine
Cause I miss you son
I'd bring you back home if I was the one
But it's four and ten
In the belly of the four AM
And you're staring down the weekend
To silence the pain
And I'm wide awake
And there's blood on the promenade

    Song Meaning"Here's to waking up with that stone between your ribs" may refer to having a heart of stone, like in Ezekiel 36:26.

    "If I had the medicine
    I'd give you the medicine
    Cause I miss you son
    I'd bring you back home if I was the one"
    This may reference how God is the only One Who can administer a cure to our deepest ailments.
