- And now with the following collection of...

I'm above everything else
Saved the ones who shouldn't be
Hold on to them all so you'll
Find yourself away from me

Our lost faith strung out in a line
My most empathetic dreams of you
The sorry excuses on which we dine
When all my fears tell me it's true

Borrowed dreams of some imagined future
All wrapped up inside this borrowed hope

Don't manipulate the most
Beautiful thing you'll ever know
To the extent of saving your
Ragged torn out sickly show

Holding my head above the fold
Can't decide which side I want
I buried everything so deep in the cold
Now I step into the lies that I flaunt

Borrowed dreams of some imagined future
All wrapped up inside this borrowed hope

Pull it all away from me
Show me all the things I can
Never be allowed to see
It's all so far away

If you must have faith in someone
Trust that I'll push you away
If you must have faith in someone
Trust that I'll push you away

What am I if
The flies all stick to me?
What am I if
The maggots live in me?
What am I if
I'm closest to the stink?
What am I if
You're all that's real to me?

What
Am
I?

Teach me,
Just show me,
Break everything,
Flush it away

Teach me,
Just show me,
The starts already over
Break everything and
Flush it away

    General CommentI don't really think this song's any good, the ending is quite good but the first two verses and chorusy bit is absoloute shite, I guess it'll have to grow on me.
