I can barely move, I can barely see where we're going now
The road is washed out from the river that flooded just north of town
We stick, stick, stick, stick to the plan we laid out, but we know the saying
The best, best, best, best plans of both mice and men can go terribly wrong, they probably will

So please, nobody speaks, nobody get any smart ideas
If we don't have any heroics we may just get out of here
And home to your families by dinner time, safely and soundly sleeping
‘cause we don't want trouble, we'll take what we came for and we'll leave quiet, or maybe we will

Tear you up, take what you love, and burn it down, burn it down

Nobody moves, nobody moves and no one gets hurt
Nobody opens their mouth and we have nothing to worry about
We'll keep, keep, keep, keep you alive ‘cause we always need bargaining chips
We'll keep, keep, keep, keep you alive ‘cause you're pretty, and we need something to look at while we

Tear you up, take what you love, and burn it down, and burn it down
You swear to build, we swear to come and burn it down, burn it down

Weighing the cost of the love you make
Measure again, yeah
Feeling the weight of the bones you break
Break them again, yeah

Wandering the halls ( … … )
Sinking our teeth into the wall for blood
( … … ) in magazines

Break all the locks without the combination
I know where you hid it, I consider it mine
Went to the ground without a planning or feeling
And keep me alert until the next valentine

Please cut me up, cut me apart and make me
The lover you wanted when you were young and asleep
And I'm fine when your youth burns like coal from a bottle
The lover you wanted while you waited so long

Weighing the cost of the love you make
Measure again, yeah
Feeling the weight of the bones you break
Break them again, yeah

Weighing the cost of the love you make
Measure again, yeah
Feeling the weight of the bones you break
Break them again, yeah

Weighing the cost of the love you make
Measure again, yeah
Feeling the weight of the bones you break
Break them again, yeah

Weighing the cost of the love you make
Measure again, yeah
Feeling the weight of the bones you break
Break them again, yeah

    General Commenti think it's "went to the crowds without a planning of feelings"

    General CommentI've got some hypothesis of some things...
    after "went to the crowds without a planning of feelings" i hear "and keep me alert till the next (valentine?)"
    Then for some of the screamin i hear "Paying the cost of an argument...?" then "Feeling the weight of ???" I do not know if im right though...

    General CommentI hear "Weighing the cost of our love" ... Good song. Has anybody heard "Hands in the Sky (Big Shot)" by Straylight Run? This song really reminds me of it.... They're both pretty awesome songs!
