    The Little Things Give You Away Lyrics 06:23
    Wake in a sweat again
    Another day’s been laid to waste
    In my disgrace
    Stuck in my head again
    Feels like I’ll never leave this place
    There’s no escape
    
    I’m my own worst enemy
    
    I’ve given up, I’m sick of feeling
    Is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away, I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me
    
    I don’t know what to take
    Thought I was focused, but I’m scared
    I’m not prepared
    I hyperventilate
    Looking for help, somehow, somewhere
    And no one cares
    
    I’m my own worst enemy
    
    I’ve given up, I’m sick of feeling
    Is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away, I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me
    
    Put me out of my misery!
    Put me out of my misery!
    Put me out of my
    Put me out of my fucking misery!
    
    I’ve given up, I’m sick of feeling
    Is there nothing you can say?
    Take this all away, I’m suffocating
    Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me
    I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared
    But no one would listen, ’cause no one else cared
    After my dreaming, I woke with this fear
    What am I leaving when I’m done here?
    
    So if you’re asking me, I want you to know
    
    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    
    Leave out all the rest, don’t be afraid
    I’ve taken my beating, I’ve shared what I made
    I’m strong on the surface, not all the way through
    I’ve never been perfect, but neither have you
    
    So if you’re asking me, I want you to know
    
    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    Leave out all the rest
    
    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
    I can’t be who you are
    
    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    Leave out all the rest
    
    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
    I can’t be who you are
    
    I can’t be who you are
    Yeah, here we go for the hundredth time
    Hand grenade pins in every line
    Throw ‘em up and let something shine
    Going out of my fucking mind
    Filthy mouth, no excuse
    Find a new place to hang this noose
    String me up from atop these roofs
    Knot it tight so I won’t get loose
    Truth is, you can stop and stare
    Run myself out and no one cares
    Dug the trench out, laid down there
    With a shovel up out of reach somewhere
    Yeah, someone pour it in
    Make it a dirt dance floor again
    Say your prayers and stomp it out
    When they bring that chorus in
    
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    Just to throw it away, just to throw it away
    
    I bleed it out, go, stop the show
    Drop your words and let sloppy flow
    Shotgun, opera, lock and load
    Cock it back and then watch it go
    Mama, help me, I’ve been cursed
    Death is rollin’ in every verse
    Candy paint on his brand new hearse
    Can’t contain him, he knows he works
    Fuck, this hurts, I won’t lie
    Doesn’t matter how hard I try
    Half the words don’t mean a thing
    And I know that I won’t be satisfied
    So I try ignoring him
    Make it a dirt dance floor again
    Say your prayers and stomp it out
    When they bring that chorus in
    
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    Just to throw it away, just to throw it away
    
    I bleed it out, I’ve opened up these scars
    I’ll make you face this
    I’ve pulled myself so far
    I’ll make you face this now
    
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    Just to throw it away, just to throw it away
    
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    I bleed it out, digging deeper just to throw it away
    Just to throw it away, just to throw it away
    
    I bleed it out
    I bleed it out
    I bleed it out
    I close both locks below the window
    I close both blinds and turn away
    Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple
    Sometimes goodbye’s the only way
    
    And the sun will set for you
    The sun will set for you
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you
    
    In cards and flowers on your window
    Your friends all plead for you to stay
    Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple
    Sometimes goodbye’s the only way
    
    And the sun will set for you
    The sun will set for you
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you
    
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you
    
    And the shadow of the day
    Will embrace the world in grey
    And the sun will set for you
    In this farewell
    There’s no blood
    There’s no alibi
    ‘Cause I’ve drawn regret
    From the truth
    Of a thousand lies
    
    So let mercy come
    And wash away…
    
    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself
    To cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done
    
    Put to rest
    What you thought of me
    While I clean this slate
    With the hands
    Of uncertainty
    
    So let mercy come
    And wash away…
    
    What I’ve done
    I’ll face myself
    To cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done
    
    For What I’ve done
    
    I’ll start again
    And whatever pain may come
    Today this ends
    I’m forgiving what I’ve done
    
    I’ll face myself
    To cross out what I’ve become
    Erase myself
    And let go of what I’ve done
    What I’ve done
    
    Forgiving what I’ve done
    Turn my mic up louder, I got to say something
    Lightweights steppin’ aside when we come in
    Feel it in your chest, the syllables get pumping
    People on the street then panic and start running
    Words on loose leaf sheet, complete coming
    I jump in my mind, I summon the rhyme I’m dumping
    Healing the blind, I promise to let the sun in
    Sick of the dark ways we march to the drumming
    Jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping
    Fuck that, I wanna see some fists pumping
    List something, take back what’s yours
    Say something that you know they might attack you for
    ‘Cause I’m sick of being treated like I had before
    Like it’s stupid standing for what I’m standing for
    Like this war’s really just a different brand of war
    Like it doesn’t cater to rich and abandon poor
    Like they understand you, in the back of their jet
    When you can’t put gas in your tank, these fuckers
    Are laughing their way to the bank, and cashing their check
    Asking you to have the passion and have some respect
    For a leader so nervous in an obvious way
    Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
    And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
    In the living room, laughing like, “What did he say?”
    
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    
    In my living room watching it, I am not laughing
    ‘Cause when it gets tense, I know what might happen
    The world is cold, the bold men take action
    Have to react to get blown into fractions
    At 10 years old, it’s something to see
    Another kid my age drugged under a Jeep
    Taken and bound and found later under a tree
    I wonder if he had thought ‘the next one could be me’
    Do you see the soldiers that are out today?
    They brush the dust from bulletproof vests away
    It’s ironic, at times like this you’d pray
    But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday
    There’s bombs on the buses, bikes, roads
    Inside your market, your shops, and your clothes
    My dad, he’s got a lot of fear, I know
    But enough pride inside not to let that show
    My brother had a book he would hold with pride
    A little red cover with a broken spine on the back
    He hand-wrote a quote inside,
    “When the rich wage war, it’s the poor who die”
    Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
    Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
    The rest of the world watching at the end of the day
    Both scared and angry, like “What did he say?”
    
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    
    With hands held high into a sky so blue
    As the ocean opens up to swallow you
    Are you lost in your lies?
    Do you tell yourself I don’t realize
    Your crusade’s a disguise?
    Replaced freedom with fear
    You trade money for lives
    I’m aware of what you’ve done
    
    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced
    
    I see pain, I see need
    I see liars and fiends
    Abuse power with greed
    I had hope, I believed
    But I’m beginning to think that I’ve been decieved
    You will pay for what you’ve done
    
    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced
    
    Thieves and hypocrites!
    Thieves and hypocrites!
    Thieves and hypocrites!
    
    No, no more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced
    
    No more sorrow
    I’ve paid for your mistakes
    Your time is borrowed
    Your time has come to be replaced
    
    Your time has come to be replaced
    Your time has come to be erased
    My insides all turn to ash
    So slow
    And blew away as I collapsed
    So Cold
    A black wind took them away
    From sight
    Another darkness over day
    That night
    
    And the clouds above move closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing
    
    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    Because my path has lost direction
    Somehow
    
    A black wind took you away
    From sight
    Another darkness over day
    That night
    
    And the clouds above move closer
    Looking so dissatisfied
    And the ground below grew colder
    As they put you down inside
    But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing
    
    So now you’re gone
    And I was wrong
    I never knew what it was like
    To be alone…
    
    On a valentine’s day
    On a valentine’s day
    On a valentine’s day
    On a valentine’s day
    
    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    Because my mind has lost direction
    Somehow
    
    I used to be my own protection
    But not now
    Because my mind has lost direction
    Somehow
    Let me apologize to begin with
    Let me apologize for what I’m about to say
    But trying to be genuine was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between
    
    Let me apologize to begin with
    Let me apologize for what I’m about to say
    But trying to be someone else was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between
    
    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing that’s worse than one is none
    
    Let me apologize to begin with
    Let me apologize for what I’m about to say
    But trying to regain your trust was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between
    
    Between my pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing that’s worse than one is none
    The only thing that’s worse than one is none
    
    And I cannot explain to you
    In anything I say or do or plan
    Fear is not afraid of you
    But guilt’s a language you can understand
    
    I cannot explain to you
    In anything I say or do
    But hope the actions speak the words they can
    
    For my pride and my promise
    For my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing that’s worse than one is
    
    Pride and my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing that’s worse than one is none
    The only thing that’s worse than one is none
    The only thing that’s worse than one is none
    Telling me to go
    But hands beg me to stay
    Your lips say that you love
    Your eyes say that you hate
    
    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubt in your faith
    What you build you lay to waste
    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubt in your faith
    All I’ve got’s what you didn’t take
    
    So I, I won’t be the one
    Be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone
    Alone with all your secrets
    And regrets
    Don’t lie
    
    You promised me the sky
    Then tossed me like a stone
    
    You wrap me in your arms
    And chill me to the bone
    
    There’s truth in your lies
    Doubt in your faith
    All I’ve got’s what you didn’t take
    
    So I, I won’t be the one
    Be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone
    Alone with all your secrets
    And regrets
    Don’t lie
    
    So I, I won’t be the one
    Be the one to leave this
    In pieces
    And you, you will be alone
    Alone with all your secrets
    And regrets
    Don’t lie
    Water gray, through the windows, up the stairs
    Chilling rain, like an ocean everywhere
    
    Don’t want to reach for me, do you?
    I mean nothing to you, the little things give you away
    And now there will be no mistaking
    The levees are breaking
    
    All you’ve ever wanted
    Was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water, I do
    
    Hope decays
    Generations disappear
    Washed away,
    As a nation simply stares
    
    Don’t want to reach for me, do you?
    I mean nothing to you, the little things give you away
    But now there will be no mistaking
    The levees are breaking
    
    All you’ve ever wanted
    Was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water, I do
    
    All you’ve ever wanted
    Was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet underground,
    
    Now I do…
    
    Oh, oh…
    
    The little things give you away, the little things give you away
    (All you’ve ever wanted was someone to truly look up to you)
