lyrics

Down the long white hall
into the common room
you ask for cigarettes
and the clothes I brought for you
you say "I don't mind the uniforms,
but they're not the same.”
and I know you think
I'm busy placing blame

They never asked for your surrender
but white flag’s flying high
Oh how I wish I could defend you
from all the demons inside

Off from group at six
sneak a quick smoke break
contemplate you day
see how much you can take
No they can't prescribe
just what you need
to take back your life
and reclaim the day
from the grip of night

No you can't escape
thoughts you think at night
scratch away the skin
knuckles turning white
You say you only do this for
a bit of control
over what is left
of this tattered soul

They never asked for your surrender
but white flag's flying high
Oh how I wish I could defend you
from the demons inside

I accept of me the faults and complexity
that make me who I am
And someday you will see
this world so differently
now please take my hand.
I think you know that we’ll survive this tragedy
just like we always do
Because so far as I can see
you are a part of me
and i'm a part of you.
