lyrics

When I think about me I could scream
Wanna hide out from this bad dream
And wait….so far, so far away

Turned it till it I had to face it
Life was fucked--I still embraced it
It still counts if you were wasted, yeah yes it does

I wake up and send her home, and
Shower off the shame all alone, I
Make sure that her cab is paid for

I said it for you, I'll say it for me
If I were God I'd never believe me
I said I got a lot to pray for

Stunning like a new face on the scene
I'm shooting up with gasoline
I can't say where it's gonna end? Is it ever gonna end?

Holiness is blood sweat and come
Evil's when it leaves you for numb
Love is inattention undone, yeah…yes it is

You're runnin' for that spotlight naked
Adolescent sheep with wolves’ faces
Clawing for the choicest placements

I said it for you, I did it for me
Say it to me, nice and slowly
Someone's got a lot to pray for

You're sorry for you, I ain't sorry for me
Cuz someone's got it harder, believe me
Someone's got too much to pray for

I'll say it for you, I said it for me
You can always make it harder believe me
Oh, we got a lot to pray for
