Tell me all your troubles and I will tell you mine
For a while we can hide away and escape the passing of time
But know that my words are bleak and not made to last
They fade as we speak
And I never quit when I should quit indeed
Catch my syllables as they
Fall from my mouth and go racing through monologues
Fueled by listening ears
All that guilt that we share
All that warmth that we need but that we cannot find
Keeps us bound together in defeat

But I have nothing to say that hasn't been said a million times before
I just slipped through the cracks of an already closing door
So don't waste your precious time on me
You say that I radiate light but I can't see whatever you see

Tell me all your heavy-hearted sorrows that you cannot bear
For a while we can hide away and complain about how it isn't fair
That our bodies are weak and not made to last
We die as we speak
And we're wide awake when we should be asleep
Watch the shadows as they
Creep over bottles and packs full of cigarettes,
Headaches and faint memories
And all the pain in my ribs
All the kindness that burns
Just like salt in my unworthy wounds
That brain-eating disease...

So don't waste your precious life on me
I will not leave but you deserve better than I could ever be.
