Lyrics

So when they get sick of you calling, and they just don't care if you're falling fast.

When all of those eyes are on you and the weight of it rests upon your back.

You slam the door hard as you run to your car and collapse.

And you never go fast enough to leave what has passed you in the past.

And they're pointing their fingers and rolling their eyes, making your struggle seem trite. Gushing with laughter and eloquent sighs; you don't want to break but you might.

And you won't let them in, and you won't let them see. Well, then how strong can you be?

When you look upon all your devices and you stop telling lies are you twice as scared?

'Cause everyone's sure they're honest and everyone's certain they're aware.

As they stumble and stagger like blind drunken fools down the stairs,

Waking up all of the neighbors and shouting about their selfish cares.

And they're pointing their fingers and rolling their eyes, making your struggle seem trite. Gushing with laughter and eloquent sighs; you don't want to break but you might.

And you won't let them in, and you won't let them see these moments when there's not a thing to believe in and all your decision are thrown in your face and everything's scattered and it seems out of place. And the only light visible is hazily streaming through cracks in the walls that you made.

And you won't let them in, and you won't let them see. Well, then how strong can you be?
