lyrics

This is not what you had planned for
So help me understand more
About your broken hands

Bending backwards in a painful
Collapsing yellow train
Full of empty plastic bags

Pulling people off the train tracks
Begging them to stay back
Praying for a change

Giving up or giving often?
I refuse to close my coffin
If a coward lies inside

When I pressed my feet into the wet cement
It didn't hurt
I didn't stick
I never bled
I learned to see and hear and say the things
That I had never said
I learned to laugh at all those little things instead
I learned to laugh at all the people
In my head

God, I hardly have the patience
For awkward conversations
About my bloody arms

Laying paper on the table
Expecting to be able
To follow it along

Well I've been here ever since this
Familiar consequences
Are all I comprehend

Crawling out of the escape door
Believe me that I'd stay for
Anyone but them

When I pressed my feet into the wet cement
It didn't hurt
I didn't stick
I never bled
I learned to see and hear and say the things
That I had never said
I learned to laugh at all those little things instead
I learned to laugh at all the people
In my head
