    When was it that you lost your youth or traded
    It for something more for them to use so jaded
    Why is it that you never said
    I love you more than just a friend

    I pray this gridlock never ends
    And when we get there just depends
    I found out recently that you are leaving
    For good I hope I softly tell me ceiling

    It's better now to be alive
    Sleeping is my nine to five
    I'm having nightmares all the time
    Of running out of words that rhyme

    Everything that you could never say
    Would never matter anyway
    I took a hammer and two nails to my eardrums long ago
    Before that steak knife took my eyes

    I looked up to the sky
    For the last thing I would ever see
    For the last time I'd cry
    When was it that you sold your life or wasted

    Every bite of that small slice you never tasted
    I guess I should be one to talk
    There's nights that I can't even walk
    There's days I couldn't give a fuck

    And in between is where i'm stuck
    From blocks away I heard somebody screaming
    That small child inside of you that you left bleeding
    You stabbed him up not once but twice

    Cubicles will now suffice
    Some say it's the roll of the dice
    I think they're wrong I know I'm right
    Every breath that I could barely breathe

    Could barely make it past my teeth
    I took a blowtorch to both of my lungs a long, long time ago
    Every step that I could take
    Every one more difficult to make

    Mr. Chainsaw came and took my legs a long, long time ago
    In case you're wondering I'm singing about growing up and giving in
    In case you're wondering we're singing about growing up
    About giving up and giving in
