lyrics

The life I see, the air I breathe
is just so thick
My shoulders bare the weight of these lies
in my eyes they stick

My constitution falls to pieces
every time I think
My skin it cracks and breaks
the time it takes to reach the brink

Shoot the boy down
shoot the boy down
pull no punches
squeeze the trigger
yet there is no sound

Shoot the boy down
shoot the boy down
shattered glass
we left the pieces burnin on...
the ground

The candy coat around your throat
makes your words so sweat

Caught of guard you pull my card
I raise the bass and you don’t miss a beat

The truth it's me that churned the sea
hiding stones down the coast

Our pretty lights and petty lies
have left us naught but ghost

Shoot the boy down
shoot the boy down
pull no punches
squeeze the trigger
yet there is no sound

Shoot the boy down
shoot the boy down
shattered glass
we left the pieces broken on...
the ground

We plant the seeds that grew the trees
that built this home

We burn the cars and salt the yard
and pack our bags with stones

Don't complicate the paper soul
of a golden doll

I hear the choir you open fire
and you watch me fall

Shoot the boy down
shoot the boy down
pull no punches
squeeze the trigger
yet there is no sound

Shoot the boy down
shoot the boy down
shattered glass
we left the pieces broken on...
the ground

BROKEN ON THE GROOOOOOOOUND!
