lyrics

We are sick
Of the silence of our brothers
And the dreams of our mothers
That never got to see the light of day
So let's take anything that we can
Have ourselves a grand weekend
Oh, we can leave it all behind
But now alone
I've got to see my problems through
It's kind of hard without you
Oh don't you see

When it all tries to bring me down
There's a sudden wind that wraps me
And ties me straight down to the ground
Like a kite hangs from its string
Please don't let go

And so you stare
Right through the shame that I have built
The fire I feed with my guilt
Because somehow you know
The pain I bare
The sound of dead air in the room
The years that I have consumed
To keep you from seeing

When it all tries to bring me down
There's a sudden wind that wraps me
And ties me straight down to the ground
Like a kite hangs from its string
Please don't let go

And so I've tried to find another way
To deal with the outcomes of my fate
That's always been the hardest part for me
And dealing with the tides that change
Oh fuck my face and fuck my name
That is not what I want you to see
To see
To see

And it all tries to bring me down
There's a sudden wind that wraps me
And ties me straight down to the ground
Like a kite hangs from its string
Please don't let go
