[Verse 1]
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
Starved like a vampire chasing a vein
Cruel disposition, sickness I crave
Attention, attention, welcome to the stage
Your new sacrifice, come sharpen your teeth
[Chorus]
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey, prey, we’re prey for the sorrow
Prey, prey, prey for the sorrow
[Verse 2]
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
Sick validation, gut full of pills
Self-medication, it’s making me ill
Attention, attention, it’s all eyes on me
I’ll burn at the stake while you ache for the kill
[Chorus]
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey, prey, we’re prey for the sorrow
Prey, prey, prey for the sorrow
[Bridge]
Our new gods are empty like the holes in our heads
We dance upon the alter of envy and hubris
A scourge of narcissism reaps depression in black waves
If this is your salvation, you better pray
You better pray
You better pray
One, two, three, go
[Chorus]
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey, prey, we’re prey for the sorrow
Prey, prey, prey for the sorrow

Forced to cope with every roadblock
This drive placed in our way
On and on, we’re holding back
On and on, I’m trying to forget that
We’re two hours away from home
No signs of hope
I’m starting to think I’m coming home
I think my sanity’s closing with the day
I’d like to think that we move on
And on and on to better things
A night stranded in Cleveland was the only thing we needed to Get this fucking town on the move
(A ten hour drive, yet so close to home)

It’s not what you think
I just have this way of forcing words I never meant
And I’d like to think that there was weight
In the words exchanged or the way it felt back then
And I know that gets colder at this time of year
And I know that it gets colder when the lies fly by
Though I think you should know everything
I’m keeping this one in for good and that’s the way it ought to be
There’s many things I’d probably say I wouldn’t do but I did back then
I know I lied to you but it was better that way
And it doesn’t change the way you see right through
And I know that it gets colder at this time of year
And I know that it gets colder when the lies fly by
Though I think you should know everything
I’m keeping this one in for good and that’s the way it ought to be
And I know that it gets colder at this time of year
And I know that it gets colder when the lies fly by

I don’t give enough to take back what I own
My stories are told out of broken homes
I could be a bit better if I kill off this ghost
I’m alone
I bleed from the inside
And I won’t tell anyone
I’m nowhere to find
But I couldn’t care it all
Live like a ghost to keep me from talking
Til’ you notice where I’m at
Cause I couldn’t care at all
Nowhere to hide, and nowhere to run to when nobody listens
I’m just a liar that’s tired of trying
I’ll pick myself apart cause I couldn’t care at all
I’m sick of waiting

Maybe I’m too quick to guess
Throwing words again
I keep cutting ties with my peace of mind
So I can get this out
I keep cutting ties with my peace of mind
So I can get this out
At times I count myself out
Wait for days till I can be found
At times I’m just down and out
Wait for days till I can be found
Once I’m alive again
Once I’m alive I start to love again
But I still shut my eyes

I’ll sleep outside
Bury myself on a winter night
I’ll let you do the things you want to
I’d rather die alone if I have to
If you don’t mind I think I’ll stay at home tonight
My resolution says the things that I’ve been trying to
But I’m dying to you
So shut my eyes
And take my life
Sit alone and drown again
I’d like to take you up for taking me down
I’d like to take you up for taking me down
And I’d love to kill the mood to stay in solitude
Gets hard to see me through to stay in solitude
So shut my eyes
Take my life
Sit alone and drown again
Sit alone and drown again

If my lungs would motivate the words to come out
I’d probably say: “I’m dying to leave”
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt right
I’ve been counting down the days
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt right
This home isn’t home to me (I’ve never felt more alone)
This town is not a home (but I’ve never felt more at home)

Tear out my eyes
Bleed alive
I’ve fallen out of light
You’re a constant reminder of the sound My skin is stretched over lonely bones
Can’t help but choke with your hands on my throat
It’s hard to make up for your moves when they are set in stone
I assumed you were on your way
Another new face for every passing day
You say it’s temporary but you can’t escape yourself from past mistakes
You’re a constant reminder of the sound
Replace tonight with better things, and make my better days
I’ve got this kind of hate that I can’t keep put away
And what’s the point of waiting when you got nothing to lose?

I complicate you for your fellowship
Manipulate my fix, predetermine your sin
I am your only wish
My baby’s silhouette, she’s growing out of it
I could’ve savored it
Instead, I let it slip
I am your weight
A blessing from a family fugitive
I blame myself, I give my soul for it, I love myself for it
I’ve seen the aftermath of a once honest man
I am a product and you are just here to sell
A sudden spiral into me
You are blooming into disease
Feel the weeks turn into mold
A nail in your hands is the only thing you can believe
You are vast, you’re someone that I envy
Wash your hands until you are clean
Feel my arms around me
Sink my nails into something beautiful
I am immovable, you are disposable
I am impossible
Float in my firmament, the world as I see it
Nothing is certain but I’ve become permanent

Such minimal and worthless things I get myself into
I get myself in two
And paragraphs rest angry words onto a landscape
That sinks me down to a level much lower than that
Of an angry kid with loaded words and too many silences
And I am looking back on these past few years
I’ve led myself on to think I’m better than this
I can’t be better than this
Say what you wanted to say
The glory days have worn away
Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless
Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless
We’ve got it figured out or so it may seem
(Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless)
Maybe I just need some sleep
(Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless)
We’ve got it figured out or so it may seem
(Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless)
Maybe I just need some sleep
(Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless)
We’ve got it figured out or so it may seem
(Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless)
Maybe I just need some sleep
(Stranded, we aren’t the hopeless)

Another night out on the docks with the lights on
Steve’s trying to light up a fire in the backyard
I always told him that it’d never work for us
We’re growing up, it’s been the longest time
Since we’ve been downtown
Yeah, since we’ve been downtown
The winters over, yeah its been a few weeks
I’m counting down till, I’m counting down till now
Now that we have to go
Now that we have to go
Now that we have to go
All my friends think I’m just stainless
All my friends think I’m just stainless
Another night out on the docks with the lights on
Steve’s trying to light up a fire in the backyard
I always told him that it’d never work for us
It’s been awhile since we’ve walked down these back streets
I never felt so wrong in defeat
I always thought this can’t be good for us
Hanging out in parking lots and
Stealing shit from cars on the weekend
In the end we thought nothing was wrong
But, all my friends think
All my friends think I’m the one who’s wrong
Another night out on the docks with the lights on
Steve’s trying to light up a fire in the backyard
I always told him that it’d never work for us
It’s been awhile since we’ve walked down these back streets
I never felt so wrong in defeat
I always thought this can’t be good for us
And all my friends think
All my friends think I’m the one who’s wrong
And all my friends think
All my friends think I’m the one who’s wrong
Another night out on the docks with the lights on
Steve’s trying to light up a fire in the backyard
I always told him that it’d never work for us
It’s been awhile since we’ve walked down these back streets
I never felt so wrong in defeat
I always thought this can’t be good for us

And I hear you’ve ended up fine
And I heard you’re making out alright
I’ve heard you still don’t like the cold outside
And I’ve heard you still got trouble tracking time
And I’ve heard you said one time
That I never even fucking cross your mind
And I guess I’ll act like that’s fine
But you should know that you cross mine all the time

The city’s getting darker by the second
And we’re losing sleep and losing friends in time
Where did all the weekends go
The wasted time and youth
Thin lines again
I never knew just what I’ve missed
But it’s hit or miss this time
I’ve paid my dues now it’s time to get this right
I know that things are changing now
I know that things are changing now
I know that things are changing
The only place I know has turned on me
Take a look into the setting sun
(I know that things are changing now)
Take a look and who are you going to miss
(I know that things are changing now)
Take a look into the setting sun
(I know that things are changing now)
Take a look and who are you going to miss
(I know that things are changing now)
I know that things are changing now
I know that things are changing now
I know that things are changing
The only place I know has turned on me

I’ll kill you now, and I’ll be saved
If you heal your wounds, sing me off Sing me off
If I can’t choose, why would you? If I could bloom, so could you
What a sour tasting delight
A killing in front of your eyes
When you heal your wounds, sing me off
Sing me off
Sing me off
If I hear your ghost I’m a fool
If I slit my throat, would it be to use? Yeah I’ve been ashamed but I got away
I hope you heal your wounds, sing me off
Swallow me whole
Swallow me whole
If I’m still too young, break my chains
If my shades too dark, weep in vein
If I kill you now, will I be saved? If you heal these wounds, sing me off
If you heal these wounds, sing me off
When a favor’s too much to ask, an hour’s come and passed
When you heal those wounds, sing me off.

Just to review
She will a-break thru
Nobody stops her
No one can lock her down
[Pre-Chorus]
She is an ephiphany
Her electricity opens my days like she always knew
I feel like affinity, look at me, a deity
In all her ways, she’s a break-thru
[Chorus]
Under the sun, there’s nothing new
But she keeps it 100 in the shade
She’s a break-thru
It’s cold out there
That’s nothing new
But she keeps it 100 through the shade
She’s a break-thru
[Bridge]
She’s a break-thru
She’s a break-thru
She’s a break-thru
She’s a break-thru
[Chorus]
Under the sun, there’s nothing new
But she keeps it 100 in the shade
She’s a break-thru
It’s hot out here
And warm indoor
But she keeps it 100 through the shade
She’s a break-thru
[Outro]
She’s a break-thru
She’s a break-thru
She’s a break-thru
She’s a break-thru How’s it going? [Verse 1]
What’s up? The unreal cheekbone
She is so dreamy
That she got features on Fellini
Deadpan, unimpressed
Archimedes Palimpsest
Just hanging out all Julian Casablancas
[Pre-Chorus]
She is an ephiphany
Her electricity opens my days like she always knew
I feel like affinity, look at me, a deity
In all the ways, she’s a break-thru
[Chorus]
Under the sun, there’s nothing new
But she keeps it 100 in the shade
She’s a break-thru
It’s cold out there
That’s nothing new
But she keeps it 100 through the shade
She’s a break-thru
[Verse 2]
She is so wild
Middle-earth highbrow
Her line is Pablo but her color’s Fauves
What about it?
