You don't have to tell us we're dying
Just like you don't have to say that school gets out today
Don't got to tell us that we're not trying
'Cause we're all trying to keep our heads out from the dirt

There comes days we got nothing to say
Better speak up boy 'cause it's silence or cancer these days
And I won't choose cancer if you don't choose cancer
I won't choose cancer, okay
Sometimes tobacco wins

Well we sat and talked awhile about falling down the stairs
And how we can't believe it hasn't happened yet
Got me thinkin' when I do fall, I hope everyone is there
Yes I hope everyone is there

It'll be the last spill for awhile that you take
If your collarbone is still straight
And twelve miles east
There's a junk car dying in a parking lot
Had a cough and a whine and a wheeze
But you don't gotta tell 'em
That his engine block has rusted right through
He's out of ideas, what about you?
And you don't gotta tell him to get it towed
'Cause he knows, says he's on it

We'll keep on swinging and we'll keep on spinning
And your car will keep on wasting away

Well the sun shines down on this town
And the bricks hold in every little thing
The effects begin to sting
And I heist a drag from between your fingers
And the smoke feels hotter than the air
And that's been getting hot

There comes times you got nothing to add
But if you pick apart your life you'll find a reason it's bad
But you're not the devil and we're not the devil
And we're just a little bit mad
And sometimes you just need to breathe

You don't have to tell us we're dying
Just like you don't gotta say we're worth nothing at all
'Cause the truth is no one's better off the day we believe you
And your dishes might not get washed the day we believe you
