And it's too late to leave this life behind
Everybody's speaking using words they can't define
And it's not my choice but I embrace it nonetheless
You brag of your indecency like a monkey beats its chest
You brag of your indecency like a monkey beats its chest

And I don't care who you are or what you've done
Everybody equals out when all the songs are sung
We will sing them loud and we will sing them until we pass
You're shattering our innocence like a bullet through a glass
You're shattering our innocence like a bullet through a glass

So hey: I don't care if you go now or if you stay
Oh your back is bleeding, you're bleeding on me
That'll be the day when the sun falls down
The angels may weep but I'll hear no sounds but hey

I take that back I won't stop singing when I'm dead
I'll sing from the great beyond, I will echo in your head
And if you think taking your life will set you free
You've got something to learn, it's called humility
You've got something to learn, it's called humility

So hey: I don't care if you go now or if you stay
Oh your back is bleeding, you're bleeding on me
That'll be the day when the sun falls down
The angels may weep but I'll hear no sounds but hey

Gone! everybody's crying
Now you're gone
And everybody's missing you: from apathy to sympathy
This new found love is new to me
And I can hear you laughing in your grave
Everyone's forgiven
Now we're saved
Every single sin absolved
What's the point denying
When we all know we are lying to ourselves (and you can't keep that smile off your face)

Hey: I don't care if you go now or if you stay
Oh your back is bleeding, you're bleeding on me
That'll be the day when the sun falls down
The angels may weep but I'll hear no sounds but hey

Hey: I don't care if you go now or if you stay
Oh your back is bleeding, you're bleeding on me
That'll be the day when the sun falls down
The angels may weep but I'll hear no sounds but hey
