Rings of roses,
Tied round my neck,
Heavier than water.

Burn the new flesh,
Watch it turn red,
Heavier than water.

I can't stand to see you out there knowing what you did.
I can't stand to hear you talking like I don't exist.
I can't stand to live without you, anything but this,
Anything but this.

Take a deep breath,
Feels so weightless,
Lighter than a feather.

Looks like quick-sand,
Come take my hand,
Lighter than a feather.

I can't stand to see you out there knowing what you did.
I can't stand to hear you talking like I don't exist.
I can't stand to live without you, anything but this,
Anything but this.

Don't you want to see the light?
Don't you want to see the darker side?

Bright white angel light,
Don't you want to see the darker side?

Anything but this,
Anything but this,
Anything but...

I can't stand to see you out there knowing what you did.
I can't stand to hear you talking like I don't exist.
I can't stand to live without you, anything but this,
Anything but this,
Anything but this,
Anything but this
