Dying

Album: Audio Secrecy (2010)
  • It's only common sense so please don't take offense
    I gotta say what's on my mind
    'Cause all this bitterness has made me second-guess
    And I've waited all my life
    You know it's true, it isn't me, it isn't you
    I can't be your man
    But here's what I don't understand

    If I can't live without you
    But I can't breathe when I'm with you
    What are we really doing here?
    I don't wanna live without you
    But God only knows what I've been through
    'Cause dying is all we're doing here

    You leave me suffering 'til I can't feel a thing
    It's all I got when I want more
    If I waste one more day then they can take me away
    'Cause it'll be worse than it was before
    You know it's true, it isn't me, it isn't you
    I can't be your man
    But here's what I don't understand

    If I can't live without you
    But I can't breathe when I'm with you
    What are we really doing here?
    I don't wanna live without you
    But God only knows what I've been through
    'Cause dying is all we're doing here

    If I can't live without you
    But I can't breathe when I'm with you
    What are we really doing here?
    I don't wanna live without you
    But God only knows what I've been through
    'Cause dying is all we're doing here

    Oh, if I can't live without you
    But I can't breathe when I'm with you
    What are we really doing, what are we really doing here?
    I don't wanna live without you, I don't wanna live without you
    'Cause dying is all we're doing here Writer/s: COREY TAYLOR, JAMES ROOT, JOSH RAND, ROY MAYORGA, SHAWN ECONOMAKI
