If you can’t feel a fucking thing
It’s time to change the way
That you spend all of your nights
And waste all of your days

The weight you lay
With words you sew
The growing pains
Of getting old

This is how we love our lives

If you’re still out there holding on
To all that once was
Sever all the ties
Just cut them off

The weight you lay
With words you sew
The growing pains
Of getting old

This is how we love our lives

I just want to let you know that
I swear
My hate outweighs my love
I won’t get caught on broken endings


It takes the bigger part of me
It takes the bigger part of you
It takes the better part of me

    Song Meaning"The concept for the lyrics to this song came from the idea that a person grows immensely during a time of grieving. The loss of a significant person or relationship in your life can completely change your perspective, and you can start to look at a lot of the things that you once considered to be paramount as trivial and meaningless. This can be depressing, liberating, or all of the above, depending on which way you look at it.

    Everyone in our band (now, and when the song was written) has experienced some form of major loss that has shaped who they are today, and I wanted to create a lyric that bound us together and acted as a theme song for the decisions that we have made over the courses of our lives, that have led to us being in a band together and travelling all over the place, throwing everything we’ve got at this project."
