Here's what we fell for
Here's how the stories always end
Without conclusion
With looser ends than we thought
We had started with
You know we'll try it again
When the pain of fucking up
Is faded by years of pretending
We never did
When the thrill of risk inflated this emptiness

When getting what you want
Is leaving out all that you need
It comes for free
And getting what you need
Is always gonna make you bleed

It's hard to let go
When burning brands melt to your palms
How can you say no
And walk away from it?
Here's what I'll never say
Here's what's always stuck in my throat
I used to mean it every day
Symbolic scars are nothing if not vaguely tiring
When the sun goes around
And it's still the same routines again

Everybody knows
It comes and then it goes
The high and the lows
My pride and my shame
The fault and the blame
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
