So close to the coast, albatross round my shoulders
I felt like my wants were a dam in the river
I, I, I want to get back to sea
A breakdown is gonna set me free

I think that you are just like me

Your body is numb and your tongue it is tied, you are blinded
It's the steel on your skin and the love and the sin you're

Reminded
You used to be so sure and now you never are, are you?
It hurts like hell to let go but there is beauty when she breaks

Down

All of the lies that we told out of pity
Are perfectly white like new snow on a city
And lies are pretty when the truth is ugly
But when they melt, you'll end up feeling lonely

I think that you are just like me

Your body is numb and your tongue it is tied, you are blinded
It's the steel on your skin and the love and the sin you're

Reminded
You used to be so sure and now you never are, are you?
It hurts like hell to let go but there is beauty when she breaks

Down

There is beauty when we break down, down
There is beauty when we break down, down

Your body is numb and your tongue it is tied, you are blinded
It's the steel on your skin and the love and the sin you're

Reminded
You used to be so sure and now you never are, are you?
It hurts like hell to let go but there is beauty when she breaks

Down

There is beauty when we break down, down
There is beauty when we break down, down
