One pair, the better kind of man When you stoke the coal to a white flame What better defender than the fighter in the light Hold steady and cut out every part of you that will die Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you (I can take control again) Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you (I can take control again) This is a sickness, I wanna tell the truth This is a sickness, I wanna tell you Unsealed the bottle bleeds in me And I only wanted to dream you more But here’s how your cripple keeps the peace I lean and the crutch holds down the floor You’ll never be taken by the hands who hold the door One body, one mind, and one starving lonely soul Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you (I can take control again) Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you Not gonna lie, gonna lie, I’m gonna hurt you (I can take control again) This is a sickness, I wanna tell the truth This is a sickness, I wanna tell you This is a sickness, I wanna tell the truth This is a sickness, I wanna tell you

It's like the morning never happened You say you heard me but you don't reckon The record's skipping, it's not broken Over and over again Mosquitoes find me the darkness I look so hard but I can't focus They find me and they rob me Of what I can't defend It's the principle of loving People take because they want it We give because we love them Over and over again The afternoon it hides for cover And in your eyes there's someone other Between the shades of information The sun speaks true, my friend Four walls can't hold back all your secrets If I don't bleed I don't believe it I see your ghost, but I don't fear it Over and over again It's the principle of loving People take because they want it We give because we love them Over and over again

This road is a long one But we don’t strike out alone Bitten by doubt But we’ve seen it all before There comes imitation Easy eyes to draw out the blooms Mine is a vacant room Sing for the rising song Of content and older sex Unfettered by garments Enshrouding a patient inner jest Could I ever play it? Chasing out the time and tune Ours is a vacant room You’ll enjoy finding out what your treasures are This is ours born and broke of its cynic heart Pieces shatter and slowly will come to rest Like so many moments past Says I of an artist He isn’t entirely giving his all Says you of a partner Pay with your life and call a draw It finds its own way there Little strifes and severed wounds And all for a vacant room It turns in the cradle Pacified and taken too
