I used to be such a burning example,
I used to be so original.
I used to care, I was being cared for.
Made sure I showed it to those that I love.

I used to sleep without a single stir,
'Cause I was about my Father's work.

Well Take me out tonight,
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
I'm my own stone around my neck,
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

I used to pray like God was listening.
I used to make my parents proud.
I was the glue that kept my friends together,
Now they don't talk and we don't go out.

I used to know the name of every person I kissed.
Now I made this bed and I can't fall asleep in it.

Take me out tonight,
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
I'm my own stone around my neck,
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

Throw me that lifeline,
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
I'm my own stone around my neck
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

Things that were had at the scene of the accident:
"They never hit the brakes..."
"There was no time to see..."
"He just ran out in the street..."
"Does anybody know his name?"
"I think I recognize him..."
(Sure it's him?)
"He sure as hell paid for that mistake..."

Woah,
Woah.

So take me out tonight.
The ship of fools I'm on will sink.
I'm my own stone around my neck.
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give.

To save my life tonight.
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
I'm my own stone around my neck
If you'd be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give
