so
i don't want to stay
but i refuse to go
convinced it's better dying cold than brighter/happy on your own

so i play my role
claim my daily toll
i'm a thief who'll steal your youth for fear of the unknown
that
haunts
me

(chorus)
we can only make a mess now
we can only hold our breath now
we can only cause more problems
fall apart when we would solve them


so
are we even friends
are we even close
lately you just say things i don't ever want to know

push you off the ledge
then throw down some rope
you deserve much better things that i could give but don't
think
i
do

(chorus)
+
we can only make a mess now
we can only go to bed now
fall asleep on all these problems
wake up on them in the morning

(bridge)
and these dulcet tones
all these gifts i rewrote
no they don't hold up
no they don't mean enough
and the sounds we crave
well they're so hard to make
that are too hard to fake
that you need everyday

(chorus)
+
we can only make a mess now
we can only go to bed now
fall asleep on all these problems
wake up on them in the morning

i watched you die
just out of time
and i just stood by
