When we stand paralyzed
By the pulse of our hearts

When we know we need out
Desperation parading as love

When it's all too much
One more bend and you'll break

When the lies hurt like hell
I feel wrong; this feels fake

I want the strength to stand up
See this grief as a challenge

The change is constant but I want
I want to to take charge of it and

Walk with my head up
Throughout these days so long and painful

And wash these tears away
Get this heart beating for what's true

Hey

They say these lungs will help me through

When we close our eyes
To cross streets and freeways

When we have given up
On the comfort of friends and family

And the nights drag us
Through a silent misery

Of what we should have done
Differently, to not feel like this

I'm losing patience
With the void; each day with silence

And all those who run from consequence
Joke on; they always were dead

As long as I'm being honest
Yeah I'm a boy, and a criminal

Yeah the irony on our tongues
There's a heart beating for what's true

Hey

They say these lungs will help me through
