Took the bow
Pulled the rope and kissed my standards goodbye...
No, it's not my dignity that has been lost, it's the companions of my true soul that I have let down.
I cry in the same tone still

it's terrible,
I promise it's horrible...
It will make you cry,
but worry not, you'll still be the same... in your tone...
You will still cry in the same tone
because pain, man, PAIN is still spelt the same.

we're fragile
and neither
wants to be
the first to
