[intro] if i push this, i will survive if i play this, until i get it right [verse 1] i've sunk to this mess that i've been in i'm sick of waiting here in line waiting for you to come around to the way that i see this you have know its not a phase that i'll get through tonight [intro] or at least until somebody pulls me away if i push this, i will survive if i play this, until i get it right just give me one more chance to say that [chorus] I've seen it all before, I've heard all these same lines But I keep a flicker of hope still in my eyes I've made amends with all the records that I've left To sit and rot and fade away While I play this thing trying up hold on [intro/breakdown] or at least until somebody TRIES to pull me away if i push this, i will survive if i play this, until i get it right just give me one more chance to say that [chorus] I've seen it all before, I've heard all these same lines But I keep a flicker of hope still in my eyes I've made amends with all the records that I've left To sit and rot and fade away While I play this thing trying up hold on [outro] to a sound that i call home filled with empty bars and broken bottles where there’s a ringing in my ears that’s been there for quite some time and i never want to get it out

[verse 1] (i'd) been pushing away the things that i don't want to hear (i'd) been pushing away this all to get me out of here the news strikes and leaves this dead air all around wakes me from this state, complacency is... [chorus 1] gone are the days that we knew once before we'll never make sense of this always a scar in your heart that is shattered and bled on the floor having to tell you has killed what we had to live for [verse 2] (now we're) learning to live without the things that made us whole (now we're) learning to live without our eyes focused at all we try and take this day to day, i see the wear but you've broken more than you'll ever know [bridge] it seems so long ago, the last thing that he said to me was... i'm tired of all the tests i'm tired of all these endless needles i'm sick of all the stress i'm sick of all these faceless people telling me that i've got so damn much more left to live for if they could live minute in my head just to see what it's like because... [chorus 2] gone are the days that we knew once before we'll never make sense of this always a scar in your heart that is shattered and bled on the floor having to tell you has killed what we had to live for [outro] we take this all day to day but you've broken more than you know

[verse 1] i said i'm alright i said i'm ok why can't they see the same things that i see i've been giving my life to thankless few to get the fuck our of here and sing these to a room full of non-believers but i know somehow this all feels right [prechorus 1] cause i dont sing these songs about you and i don't hear the noise around you cause i don't wanna be a part of this scene [verse 2] lets think this one through lets think this one out i don't want to be the one to tell you i've giving my life to thankless few to get the fuck our of here and sing these to a room full of non-believers but i know somehow this all feels right [prechorus 2] cause i don’t sing these songs about you and i don't hear the noise around you cause i don't wanna be a part of this [chorus 1] cause i'll be here playing for no one i like it this way, this is where i'm from and if i play with no hope for tomorrow i pray that these rusted strings won't show cause i won't be giving this from my life much longer i know and they don't seem to see the same things that i see [bridge] and i said that i don't want to go and i've giving my life to thankless few to get the fuck our of here and sing these to a room full of non-believers but i know somehow this all feels right [prechorus 3] cause i don’t sing these songs about you and i don't hear the noise around you cause i don't wanna be a part of this [chorus 2] cause i'll be here playing for no one i like it this way, this is where i'm from and if i play with no hope for tomorrow i pray that these rusted strings won't show cause i won't be giving this from my life much longer i know [outro] cause they don't seem to see the same things that i see

[Verse 1] How many times have we laid still in this black room Looking through our dilated eyes to break through How many times have we Pulled apart the seams To this ugly mess [Chorus 1] And you've been pushing out reality Cause I don't think you ever want to know Why do you push me so hard When all I ever wanted was to help [Verse2] But we'll go our own way for years at a time Are you selling yourself on the street for a dime tonight i'll put this record on repeat in my ear As I walk down the street to realize what you have... [Bridge] (become to me) don't you see I've had enough of this shit (stop asking) I have my back up (against a wall) And there’s no turning back from this its been one hell of a ride but we all know how this ends [Chorus 2] And you've been pushing out reality Cause I don't think you ever want to know Why do you push me so hard [Outro] When all I ever wanted was to help help you out when all i ever wanted was to help help you out i've spent too much already on this and i don't think i'll ever get you out

[verse 1a] There's not a single thing I would content That I didn't want to see you with right up until the end cause I don't want to believe, that we all live to leave and carry on [verse 1b] Now There's little left for us to hold on to. There's little left that I would wanna listen to. I thought we left this long ago [chorus 1] We knew from the start that this would take us 2 decades They push and they pull but we still won't break away I will never lose my grip I know [Verse 2a] Look at these walls that I fortified for you I can break it down and start again, come up with something new But I know it won't go away We've come too far to lose [verse 2b] Now There's little left for us to hold on to There's little left that I would wanna listen to I thought we left this long ago [bridge] And I won't be the one to shoot you down I've come to compete and show how strong that we've become To show that we... [chorus 2] Knew from the start that this would take us 2 decades They push and they pull but we still won't break away But we knew from the start, this would end up in pieces with our hopes on the floor looking shattered and wasted As we knew from the start that this would take us 2 decades I will never lose my grip I know
