Lyrics

You're in such a fucking hurry to grow up fast
When all I do is hope that I can make you last
And this world is so cold
But nothing is quite as cold as home
...
I been here for all fifteen years of your life
And seen so many more mistakes of yours than I would've liked
Sneak home after dark
Mascara run down your cheeks
You love them they treat you like a god damn piece of meat
...
For now we're just stupid kids
So we clench our teeth and grin
White-knuckled grasp on each other's hands
The way to follow this is more than just one of us could stand
We'd all be gone in a few months time
I'd stay for ya if the choice were mine
But I wish you luck
and I'll say goodbye
You got a long road ahead and it's paved with lies
Yeah she knows
She's alone
Yeah she knows
She's alone
She knows
She's alone
Yeah she knows
She's alone
Twenty years, twenty years and not much has changed
You got the same few friends
In the same low places
A whole life spend in the shelter of your basement
The world is cold and soon you'll know
But God don't you waste it
...
And man I hated you like the devil himself
But I bled your blood truer than anyone else
We'd never say die
But I'd always call mercy
You made me strong
But not without it hurting
...
And brother we've done our time as just stupid kids
We grit out teeth
Grit our teeth
Clench your fists and grin
Our whole lives spent trying to fake it
You bore the brunt of the fever with no hopes of it breaking
But it'll all be gone in a few months time
I'd stay for ya if the choice were mine
But I'll wish you luck
and I'll say goodbye
You've got a long road ahead and it's paved with lies
Yeah he knows
He's alone
Yeah he knows
He's alone
Yeah he knows
He's alone
Yeah he knows
He's alone
...
Strangers never felt so strange
Remember all the lazy days
Stomachs filled with our favorite things that kill
The voices we left on our bedside window sills
And they know
They're alone
Yeah they know
They're alone
We know
We're alone
Yes we know
We're alone
So we thicken our skin so we can make it on our own
