Lyrics

I used to be such a burning example
I used to be so original.
I used to care, I was being cared for.
Made sure I showed it to those that I love.
I used to sleep without a single stir
'Cause I was about my Father's work.

Well Take me out tonight
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
A millstone around my neck
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

I used to pray like God was listening.
I used to make my parents proud.
I was the glue that kept my friends together
Now they don't talk and we don't go out.

I used to know the name of every person I kissed.
Now I made this bed and I can't fall asleep in it.

Take me out tonight
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
A millstone around my neck
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

Throw me that lifeline
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
A millstone around my neck
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

"They never hit the brakes..."
"There was no time to see..."
"He just ran out in the street..."
"Does anybody know his name?"
"I think I recognize him..."
(Sure it's him?)

"He sure as hell paid for that mistake..."
Woah
Woah.

So take me out tonight.
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
A millstone around my neck.
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.
To save my life tonight.
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
I'm my own stone around my neck
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give
