lyrics

take that medicine and throw it to the dogs, take the things you win and count them as a loss, weren't we shatterproof, weren't we tough as nails, did i matter to you, did i matter to myself?

by the kitchen door, by the kids that kicked us out, by the hidden whore who did things i think about, well she made her mark when she made up her maiden's mind.

we will sing less, we will drink more, and i'll barely know what for and when our time ends, we will call it friends and we will high five hands as we head out the door.

is our love a lie, is our love alive and well? am i gonna fry in the peanut oil pits of hell, cos i sure wanna die when i think how i hurt you, am i gonna fly to some joy beyond the blue?

so much better now, so much braver than before but you won't get her out, won't pull her through that door, she will stay in there, she will stay where you can't go, so make yourself scarce, cos the whole place is set to blow.

and that brass band keeps on playing and they hearken down my halls. and that brash sound is so hopelessly loud that i wanna sleep beneath its power, i think i get it now.
