Confessions of a Bound Soul

Brother, my brother,
How selfish was I
While you seemed to struggle,
I sat idly by

Brother, my brother
Yes, try as I might
I now realize
It was also my fight

Brother, my brother
Now look at your arm
It's cold and immovable
Lost all its charm

Brother, my brother
Now look at your leg
There's so much left missing
Yet not once did you beg

Brother, my brother
Though I lost more in mass
It is you far more haunted
By our mistakes in the past

Brother, dear brother
Listen when I say
I will stick by your side
Until this goes away

Brother, dear brother
Listen when I say
I will stick by your side
Until our final day

Stuck On The Lyrics Like I'm Stuck On You

You kill me...
You know you do
You kill me well
You rip my heart
Through depths of hell
I see the journals,
The logs,
And she misses you.
But not missing you all the same
She misses the feeling you give me
And I hate this feeling I get
Feeling like ever-prying,
Thought I let go the notions of potential failure
But I still think when you don't pick up
I still cry at night when you're all I think about
And nothing I forget
And the pain that rips through my bones like concrete through water
Is nothing compared to the pain of loss
Or the fear of the pain of loss
Or the pain of the fear of the pain of loss
And you won't get to see the tears I cry
So swallow me and spit me out
For hating you I blame myself
Then and there
I confess
I'll blame all this on my selfishness
Yet you love me
And that consumes me
And I will cut again
And do so willingly

Relationships that work are things that I can't comprehend

I Don't Blame You

I knew that you were in the way
I knew the lies between the truths
I knew that you would go astray
It was your fault but I don't blame you

She didn't mean to yell at you
She's just upset; she knows it's true
She knows that we have thought it through
It was your fault but I don't blame you

Our friends can't quite understand why
We ended quickly but they knew
I didn't want to keep living a lie
It was your fault but I don't blame you

Running Up That Hill

It doesn't hurt me.
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know, know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?
You, it's you and me.

But the bargaining power is gone,
Pointless
I have nothing left to trade...
Nothing worth enough
To make this barter work

And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
Say, If I only could, oh...

I almost hate her for this.
Even though she did it to me, and to you
Though you were too young to remember
I remember
And I know what it's like

You don't want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder.
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts.

I want to make it better,
I want to shield you again,
But you are there and I am here
And there is nothing I can do to stop it.
I can't fix this...
Tell me how to fix this.

Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?
You, it's you and me.
It's you and me won't be unhappy.

We've always been a pair,
Now I only feel like half
A single controller is by me where there should be two
I can almost feel your weight beside me
I can almost see your face laughing at me
I can almost hear you...

And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building,
Say, if I only could, oh...

I would tear through all borders
Driving 90 all the way
With no care for my own existance
If I had to die in order to reach you
I would do it myself.

You,
It's you and me,
It's you and me won't be unhappy.

Just let me call you
Answer the phone and let me hear emotions
Let me know's going on,
Because I can't see at the end of the tunnel
Without you to guide along

C'mon, baby, c'mon darling,
Let me steal this moment from you now.
C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
Let's exchange the experience, oh...

I would take this abuse
I can handle the pain.
I'm almost numb to it
And it can't be worse than the way I feel now
Being away...
Far away...
From you.

And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

But there are obstacles, brother
Things to get through
Things holding me back,
Hindrances attached to me like weighted chains
And it's taking me too long to undo them

So if I only could
Be running up that hill
With no problems...

Wait for me.
I'll save you.
Just give me time.
A little more time is all I need.

If I only could, I'd be running up that hill.
