lyrics

What do you do with broken memories?
They parade by on display
It hurts your fingers as you try to pick the shattered pieces up
It gets harder everyday

And as you try to sing your love songs
The words stick in your throat
I say, "God alone will love you"
You say, "I wish he'd leave me alone"

I say, "tell me what's got you feeling sunk"
You say you'd rather stay home and just get drunk
These thoughts about the world just drag you down

Yeah, I hate you, you're the death under my skin
Yeah, I hate you, you're the lies that lie within
You know these twisted conversations I've been having with myself
Everyday

You ask why I'm so optimistic
About a life thats filled with pain
You say it's naive that I say that there's love inside all of your brokenness
If God's around why won't he say?

I say, "your mind's been corrupted by anger and fear"
You say my mind's just been sleeping these twenty-some years
A breath of perspective and get some sleep at night

Yeah, I hate you, you're the death under my skin
Yeah, I hate you, you're the lies that lie within
You know these twisted conversations I've been having with myself
Everyday, everyday

You say that I'm foolish, you say that I'm desperate and full of fear
But I know exactly who I am
You say that you're reason, but reason is twisted like everything else
I know exactly who I am
