lyrics

spent my youth destroying what i own
spend five days a week finding my way back home
to you and everything i've grown to love
even our friends who end up smoking their brains to dust
melt that ring down to liquid gold
flood the house til the walls all turn brown from mold
we caught a ride that day inside a hearse
and woke anew inside the ashes of what could be worse

thinking over situations so haunting
you don't deserve that angel joining your family
or anything that you've been given in this life
one more mistake and you'll come home to a new wife

when we began we were so alive
now we barely even have the strength to die
after knowing love and loss and fear
i don't even wanna see the road that takes us here
when every demon came to show her face
and give a bad name to everyone in my good grace
dropped from my pedestal, we'll make it out
what empty mastermind hears prayers that are full of doubt

thinking over situations so haunting
you don't deserve that angel joining your family
or anything that you've been given in this life
one more mistake and you'll come home to a new wife
