Lyrics

    The more that we take
    The paler we get
    I can’t remember what it is
    We try to forget
    The tile on the floor
    So cold it can sting
    In your eyes is a place
    Worth remembering
    For you to go and take this
    To smash it apart
    I’ve gone all this fucking way
    To wind up
    To wind up back at the start
    
    Hey the closer we think we are
    Well it only got us so far
    Now you got anything left to show?
    No, no, I didn’t think so
    Hey, the sooner we realize
    We cover ourselves with lies
    But underneath we’re not so tough
    And love is not enough
    
    It hides in the dark
    Like the withering vein
    We didn’t give it a mouth
    So it cannot complain
    It never really had a chance
    We’d never really make it through
    And to think I believed
    I believed I could get better with you
    
    Hey the closer we think we are
    Well it only got us so far
    Now you got anything left to show?
    No, no, I didn’t think so
    Hey, the sooner we realize
    We cover ourselves with lies
    But underneath we’re not so tough
    And love is not enough
