lyrics

You should always try to take your steps inside
Footsteps that you find and see if you can make them bigger
You’ll often find you can’t
The ones before you walked
In shoes so God damn big it is impossible to fill them
And why, why do we always give up
Why, why do we always give up

My parents know this guy
Who is blind in both his eyes
The only thing he’s ever seen are glimpses of his future
The people stand in line
To see what’s on his mind
They’re finding new ideas and then new ways to prostitute them
And why, why do we always give up
Why, why do we always give up

So put your fingers deep inside your pockets
See how much money you can find
Spend it all on cigarettes and cheap alcohol
And watch yourself go bloody on the inside
And watch yourself go bloody on the inside

Just because you’re right doesn’t mean that I am wrong
When I made that mistake I landed in the arms of God
He made me dig a grave which is way too small for me
Now I question his existence every time I fall asleep
And that, that’s why I always give up
That, that’s why I always give up

So put your fingers deep inside your pockets
See how much money you can find
Spend it all on cigarettes and cheap alcohol
And watch yourself go bloody on the inside
And watch yourself go bloody on the inside
