It's the common reactor
It's the long way out
It's the stream of a motion blur
That swirls around til you drown

But I couldn't put it down

It's the colorless picture
In a heart shaped frame
The silhouette of a dough eyed girl
Who at one point had a name

But I couldn't put it down
No I couldn't put it down

Let's break the window panes
And separate the walls from all the nails
Cuz maybe if we're loud we'll stay alive
While everybody wants to join the fight
But now it's too late

Brush away all the memories
Keep the cries curbside
I'll be ashing on the images
That have all been caught inside

But i couldn't put it down
No i couldn't put it down
No i couldn't put it down

Let's break the window panes
And separate the walls from all the nails
Cuz maybe if we're loud we'll stay alive
While everybody wants to join the fight
Cut even if we barricade the door and seal it with the
Blood found on the floor
We're always going to cross the finish line
While everybody wants to run and hide
But now it's too late
