They cut 'em off below They cut 'em off Just beneath the kneecaps Let me lying on my back They said it wouldn't hurt no The doctor said the infection was too deep For something like a skin graft Waking up at 2:15 I can still feel them underneath my hospital sheets I'm not standing on both feet I can still feel them bruised Inside my shrinking shoes They cut 'em off below I was hooked up to a morphine drip So I never even felt the knife A no-footed freak-show The nurses say that I'll be just fine Back to Life in no time flat Waking up at 2:15 I can still feel them underneath my hospital sheets I'm not standing on both feet I can still feel them bruised Inside my shrinking shoes

I don't know if I told you There's a light in your eyes It's a lot like gravity to me Sometimes you're the only thing that's keeping me here tethered to this spinning sphere I don't know if I told you When I wake up at 3 AM Next to you but all alone I listen to your breathing It reminds me why In the morning I have strength to rise God, I know life can be such a let down Counting all your stars alone Behind that desk with nothing to do But smile on cue and answer the phone I don't know if I told you There's a prayer in your kiss A letter straight to heaven's gate A thanks Sometimes it's all the faith I have to say I hope you'll never walk away I have to say I hope you'll never walk away God I know love can be such a let down Counting all your stars alone Behind that desk with nothing to do But smile on cue and answer the phone Smile on cue and answer the phone.

She opens her arms and she just flew away I know it's not right but I can't stand to wait. No I've never been to New York No east coast holiday No I've never been to New York Only L.A.

Faint 05:13
I'm down to this so faint and fleeting So tired of my wrists and ankles bleeding And all things coming in between you and me It's all jumbled up inside I've grown broken, faint and tired tonight. I tear it down, I cast it away Claw these eyes out, just to see your face Don't think I mind this kind of blindness I just want to see your face again. It's all jumbled up inside I've grown broken, faint and tired tonight. I'm barely here I'm hardly breathing The hull is breached My ship is sinking It's a slow drown I'm coming around this time I guess I'm ready to die.

Maybe you're just tired Maybe I'm just bored of the pomp and circumstance Of the drama and dissonance Yeah, we're still here. Not dead just ignored Holding on for dear life to hear Hanging on for that check to clear And it's all overdone And we're all underwhelmed Dumbed down, decaffeinated All my drum loops super saturated If you're sick of the rock, rock, rock and roll If you're drunk on the engine fumes Sugar sweet and market-driven Armor-plated and bullet-proof
