Before We Kill You

all the years of emptiness the day I lost control
all the people that I missed never thought to call
all the years of suffering lead up ‘til the musicians play
with all their understanding when they give themselves away
and all my outsiders I know we never seem to fit in
but all of a sudden now I realize they got so many friends behind them
so if there’s something tearing you up inside
write a song about when you die and it’ll revive you
you’re still alive you and there’s so much left to do
I said there is so much more you could do until they kill you
until we kill you
I don’t need you

and I miss my friends and the things they did for me and even though I felt deceived
somewhere along the way they fulfilled some type of need
we were charged with innocence that climbed above the strong mile
minute after minute with hesitating style
so if there’s something tearing you up inside
write a song about when you die and it’ll revive you
you’re still alive you and there’s so much left to do
I said there is so much more you could do until they kill you
until we kill you
I don’t need you
