lyrics

I've got videos and pictures, I've got scars and I've got blisters
I have reasons to love people, And I have reasons to be bitter
I am tired, I'm exhausted, I'm beaten down and feel forgotten
My heart is weathered, it's been torn, but through all the pain it's never rotted

You told me "Boy, you can not break, oh no, for me you must stay solid"
But I've been drinking so much pain my body's convinced I'm an alcoholic
I've been in and out of doctors offices, because of stress
And I've been doing for so long what's wrong, when all I want is what is best

I promise I'll remember every day I feel content
And every word that comes out of my mouth will be words i always meant

So pitch a tent, and raise a toast, for all the memories and ghosts
That broke us down and built us up to bring us closer than most
And raise a glass, for the last, broken person that you passed
Because more than likely they are hurting more than you ever have

I remember when we used to always talk about growing up
And right around the time that I was 18, I'd make you fall in love
If I'da known that i was psychic, I would've made it my profession
And used the money to buy a mansion, and rid our children of apprehension.

But love is raw, love is tough, it isn't easy, it isn't fun
When all the world is resting on your back, because of things that you have done

And I've messed up, but i'm not a mess up, though sometimes I feel that's true
The things that keep me on the ground are things I thought that I outgrew

I am sick of being tired, and I'm tired of being sick
Tranquility is growing thin in me, and anxiety's grown thick

And I'm done, trying to remain
A false structure making people think that I will never break
And I'm done, trying to contain
All the pain that's rooted deep in me, cause I'm tired of being fake
