  • Catch me laughing
    Catch me drinking past the dawn
    Catch me singing
    Catch me beaming open armed

    Don't watch me weeping
    Don't watch me weep into my palms
    Don't watch me leaving, i'll be gone

    Kiss me mother, kiss me father
    Fore I go
    Don't want to leave you
    But I'm sorry I can't hold

    And you see me, through the roses
    Through the lights and the smoke and the screen
    I'm no one better
    I'm no better than you and I'm scared
    Just searching for truth

    It's not easy, just being human
    And the lights and the smoke and the screens
    Don't make it better
    I'm no stronger than you and i'm scared
    I don't know what to do
    I'm scared
    That I can't pull through

    In the weak of my soul
    The temptation to look inside my wrist—it grows
    The cut is waiting
    The cut is waxing in its hold
    The clutch of nothing
    The curse of wanting
    Takes me whole

    And you see me, through the roses
    Through the lights and the smoke and the screen
    I'm no one better
    I'm no better than you and i'm scared
    Just searching for truth

    It's not easy, just being human
    And the lights and the smoke and the screens
    Don't make it better
    I'm no stronger than you and i'm scared
    I don't know what to do i'm scared

    But we can pull through
    Together, together
    Together, we can pull through
    Together, together
    Together, we can pull through
    Together, together
    Together, we can pull through
    Together, together
    Together, we can pull through Writer/s: Gerrit Welmers, Samuel Herring, William Cashion
