If my head should slip beneath the surface, it's alright
Just take your hand and hold me under
If age should turn on us with laughter, it's alright
Remember that we'll burn together

Doctor please look at me, I cut deep but cannot bleed
The sun will burn and blister me, and I just peel away

If I should find you there above me, it's alright
I'm quicker than the blade you carry
If I should go before they're ready, it's alright
At least they won't have to worry anymore

Mom and dad please look at me, am I the boy you thought I'd be?
When I was young what did you see? Memory rots away

She asks me if this is going to hurt
Of course it will
I said teeth won't soften for promises
And your bones won't harden if your on your knees
I said if it makes you feel better,
They're just hungry
