Undress me like you mean it. I'm afraid I've seen it The pictures of yourself that you tore into pieces And threw on the ground like rose petals and ash Hoping God wasn't watching you then How he'd laugh You took the trip and lost yourself, addressed the need for help Abandoned everything you stood for. Go ahead and sit down I remember rainy days and laughing, don't remember how Compelled by death. Dressed to kill ourselves Baby, we're martyrs now But I backed out and you couldn't forgive me Cursed the world and my name to anyone who was listening Then you went and tried to overturn that open boat For questioning the sicking feeling still keeping your head afloat If that makes me a coward, I'm the one to blame I knew death would bring some closure, but it's not really the same as Stepping forward to combat that lonesome plague Afraid that martyrs never live up to their name. We needed change We swim like dead bodies Arms stretched out Face beneath the waves And if you watch The storm will stop And we'll find our way to the bottom I traced the freckles on your back until they spelled out run It was the softest warning that there ever was But I ignored it. Raised the tattered cloth above the hidden gem Was never one to take directs, dear, or follow them I built this bridge to stand, not to burn down or cross But the sentiment of hatchets in my back has never been lost You flooded both ends; I didn't make a sound Even if it killed me, I wanted to find middle ground And I did. So you mapped out the places you had been To prove you weren't afraid to lose the hell that you were stuck within I would've done the same, but to be completely honest There isn't treasure at ever X. I promise You cast off, a failed effort to escape the Splintered foundation sinking under your mistakes And as the current crashed against you, knew that you were lost And the sea gently whispered your name against the rocks We swim like dead bodies Arms stretched out Face beneath the waves And if you watch The storm will stop And we'll find our way to the bottom
