you said you weren't all you used to hope so i peeled my skin off of my bones and draped it across your fragile frame sayin' "you can be me for a while if you think that might help" your new body fit remarkably well and you didn't need me anymore so i was left alone, naked and cold sayin' "don't mind me, i am just the ghost of someone long gone" let's throw it all away if you don't need me anyway i'll laugh out loud as it burns i gave you everything all that i had in me still i promise i'll always sing your song death will come callin' for us both but i am already a ghost what will you have to show to him? what have you done with your life in the skin off of my back? you threw it all away to prove that you don't need me i watched you laugh as it burned but i'd do it all again if just for the chance to mend the scars that i left in your mind and i swear right here and now that i always knew somehow that i could never be the one the world ends with you and me there's nothing else i can see so i'll sing your song 'till the day i die

Waiting 06:22

Who Isn't? 05:29
i don't expect to be the best at anything but i think i'd like to be good for something other than screwin' up every single thing itouch no matter how hard i try, my best just ain't good enough and who isn't waiting to be changed and who isn't praying to be saved it terrifies me to think that this is all i'm meant to be just some kind of stupid weed, good for nothing... and at night when i shut my eyes, but i can't shut off my mind i long for a time when i felt good for something and who isn't tired of waiting for change and who isn't tired of praying just to be saved if you're tired and you know it clap your hands if you're dyin' and you know it clap your hands well i'm tryin' hard i swear it clap your hands but i'm dyin and i know it clap your hands... i'm sick of waiting for someone to change in me what i hate and i'm sick of praying to some god who might not know my name and who isn't dyin' to finally change and who isn't prayin' that god knows their name... who isn't?
