lyrics

Cancer brings me close
Wide eyes still whisper to the friends that are ghosts
Stop me if I say too little, too much
I don't mean to use your casket as a crutch
It's a promise broken time after time
I want to question every method, every reason, every rhyme
It's a shame proven day after day
Force-fed false hopes only to throw them up again

We played out and paid all our dues
And we still have so much to lose
We lay in the holes that we dig
Hammer another nail into my coffin
We've played out, we paid all our dues
What's left but life that we could lose
We play in the holes that we dig
We are only statistic

I brace for the storm every step through the door
Another cloud of ash to sink into my bones
Dead-end path
(Clip my wings)
A road with no exits can't fully grasp existentialism
Clip my wings before I have a chance to grow them
I will not grow them

We played out and paid all our dues
And we still have so much to lose
We lay in the holes that we dig
Hammer another nail into my coffin
They say everything is borrowed
Cast your wishes to the well
Who are they to judge the lives and deaths of all your sons and daughters
They said all was borrowed
This life is just a barter
I'll strap myself to disbelief and be the martyr
We are only statistic

I watched them put you in the ground in the rain
I saw an empty sky where heaven should have been
We are only statistic
(We have broken away)
