Black Heart Devout

Were down and out, black heart devout
Shattering, scattering, splinters in the wind  
Staring down our skulls into hollow eyes
Where were losing room for all our lies
 
And Im staring at you, through smoke stained glass
Watching you, as you fall on your ass  
Breaking knuckles on graffiti-d walls
Fucking 'those' girls in bathroom stalls  
 
Like your dick can save you from pain  
Like your whole sad life isnt circling the drain  
When all youve chased is sweet demise
Not caring that it'll be goodbye
 
'Cause love never really meant that much  
And what's love for, when you can fuck  
Every girl that buys that line
That you can show her a real good time
 
Were down and out, black heart devout
Shattering, scattering, splinters in the wind  
Staring down the barrel of a gun
And youre standing still while Im screaming RUN!
 
'Cause I don't really understand the words  
When there meaning has been deferred  
Saying, Cant get shot in the back, if you dont run
While you think this nihilism is super fun  
 
Like I want to stand here and watch you die  
While you spin me another Im okay lie
And the speed of your car is hitting insane
But I'll take the thrill if it will dull the pain  
 
Like playing chicken with a school bus, high
Standing on balconies wondering if we can fly
And I'll give you a push if you give me a shove  
Acting like I'm brave and tough  
 
Were down and out, black heart devout
Shattering, scattering, splinters in the wind  
Staring down the demons inside  
I think its about time I got off this ride  
 
'Cause my heart's backed up and locking down  
My mind screaming out in surround sound  
Searching the violence in your eyes  
Telling me you don't care if you die  
 
And I'm tired of pretending you're not a drain  
Tired of pretending we're not insane  
When you want this life with Hades touch  
Rolled up and smoked with all that stuff  
 
And I can't watch your self-annihilation  
'Cause we both know I'm not your salvation  
When you think it's safe to drink, fuck and drive  
Among all the insanity you can contrive  
 
Down and out, black heart devout
Shattering, scattering, splinters in the wind  
Staring down our skulls into hollow eyes
Giving into all our lies
