Brave as a Noun

Album: People That Can Eat People are the Luckiest People in the World (2007)
  • I could go off the deep end
    I could kill all my best friends
    I could follow those stylish trends
    But God knows I could make amends
    But Ive got an angry heart
    Filled with cancers and poppy tarts
    If this is how you folks make art its fucking depressing

    And its sad to know that we are not alone
    And its sad to know that theres no honest way out

    Im afraid to leave the house
    Im as timid as a mouse
    Im afraid if I go out Ill outwear my welcome
    Im not a courageous man
    I dont have any big lasting plans
    Too cowardly to take a stand I want to keep my nose clean

    And its sad to know that were not alone in this
    And its sad to know that theres no honest way out
    In this life we lead
    We could conquer everything
    If we could just get the brave to get out of bed in the morning
