Against Me! – Scream Until You're Coughing Up Blood lyrics

You got to hold on to
You relied on to be there is completely fucked
There's a skeleton of loyalty hanging in the gallows of your heart
[no one wins this one]
And where are your friends?
Please help me through these years ahead.
Are we just drinking buddies
Playing with each other's dearest vulnerability?
That this is all we know?
So this is how it's gonna stay?
I think I
Would rather
Remember how it was and go our separate ways.
I don't feel anything
Unless we are living and dying for each other
Every second of our lives.

You thought that it would be,
You thought you were living for is comepletely fucked.
This is no place to be.
If we don't get out of here right now,
We're just gonna end up drunk, fucking,
And fighting and working machines.
If I have another cigarette,
If I drink another beer,
Sit quiet another time when I should've said
"Oh, this is too much.
There are things I never wanted to be."
This ship has sprung a leak
And I'll be damned if I'm going down with it.
Still breathing at any cost.
