lyrics

I have a hard time
wrapping my head around
your lack of reaction and misplaced attraction to all tragedy has sown.

We're so tightly entwined,
so deeply seated,
but it's all location, region, and station when it comes to your minds.

How can you live like it's all the same?
How can you live like nothing has changed?

We're holding out
and making brilliant strides,
but as the months pass the shows of support fall too short where it counts.

Time has decayed
all recognition
While no eyes go unscathed in the face of such battered terrain.

How can you live like it's all right?
How can you live like we've nothing to fight?

I've carefully crafted every stock phrase just to keep this at bay,
but no matter how long I let it sink in, nothing can lift the stains.

How, by any stretch, can anyone please explain to me just
How in the name of all we've lost, tell me

How can you live like we're all clean?

I have a hard time living like I'm clean.
