lyrics

Weak in the knees you fall
Breakdown from all the tension
Of measuring up to fill someone’s pride
Hoping to hide
To keep them appeased and away
And what do you gain
This distress, this strain it brings you such pain
Oh, such a game
Just playing their game of pain

My mind’s full of voices
Of un-thought out choices
Your winds busted through
And I fell down
Make it easy on me
Make it easy on me

Which of your words speaks of the truth
And why do I feel it’s for your pride

It’s time that you look
And see that I’m alive
It’s time that you think
Not knowing what I want
And if you can’t
It’s probably that you’re just confused yourselves

Tight in the chest you breathe
Forsaken of all your senses
Trying to feel
Through your own hands
And understand
What it is that you need
But they just intrude
And tell you out crude
Of how you should be
But you can’t see
Or feel free their way

Laughter of torture
And torture for laughter
Her pain is so deep
I cry her tears
Make it easy on her
Make it easy on her

All the abuse that she has faced
Gives her a strength that you can’t break

It’s time that you give
Some half of what you take
It’s time that you creed
She’s young she’ll make mistakes
And if you can’t
She’ll turn her back and make up for how you’ve lacked

I bet it’s hard to take after all these years
Of love, adoration, and countless tears
And you learn that your not as good as you thought you’d be
It hurts like hell
Oh, I know
I bet it’s hard to feel the love; the pain
Is deep within a picture frame
And you plea and you beg, but your son is away again
It burns your tongue
It’s been too long
Just some acknowledgement just may have
Made it all okay
Who’s to say what we did was wrong
I'd do it all again

It’s time that you look
And see that we’re alive
It’s time that you think
Not knowing what we want
And if you can’t
It’s probably that your just confused yourselves
