This is the simplest song I could sing for you To let you know I've seen this happen before When the sun broke my door Announced I couldn't own the feelings I thought I'd known This is the saddest word I could breathe into To let you go…because I've seen this happen before When the wind swept by my door Announced I couldn't go Where your shadows weeped and moaned This is the saddest day I have known This is the most pain I have ever owned This is the saddest day I have known This is the most pain I have ever owned This is the last time I will ever try to bring you home because I've seen it happen before.

Why don't I just pull the plug Drop down onto the rug Blood splatters beneath my bed Don't matter cause I've lost my head Why don't I drive off the cliff Hit the pedal and make a wish Sip some scotch as I fly When I'm gone I'll be burning bright Wanna die but I can't do it… Wanna try but I can't feel it… Why don't I donate my blood So much I start to faint Mix it up like tomato soup and drink it down until you're through I think I'll tie my head out on a pole let the kids knock it around I played when I'm alive now I'll play when I'm away Wanna die but I can't do it… Wanna try but I can't feel it…

No matter how much I hold No matter how much I know Will I be, any less, Will I be, any less, Alone? No matter how much I try No matter how much I cry Will I be, any less, Will I be, any less, Alone? Hold my body down Drag my soul around Rip my skin clean Take away my needs No matter how much I love No matter how I wish Will I be, any less, Will I be, any less, Alone? Hold my body down Drag my soul around Rip my skin clean Take away my needs No matter how much I hold No matter how much I know Will I be, any less, Will I be, any less, Alone?

Is there a tree, Is there a sea that I can own when I feel weak? Is there a land, Is there a place that I can leave, when I'm in need? Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice that I can raise when I got no choice? Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice that I can raise when I got no choice? Is there a man, is there a girl that I can hold when I'm alone? Is there a time, is there a place when I will care where you go? Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice that I can raise when I got no choice? Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice that I can raise when I got no choice? Is there a sky, Is there a thought that will ever bring you home?

Desire don't bend, don't bend me down Past the point where I can make a sound I don't need To hold you down My lies don't end, end in my mouth I'm out beyond where I can turn around I don't need To hold you down This time don't end out, don't let me out Down from all sides it'll come around I don't need To hold you down
