The Pin

  • I would give what's left of me away
    Twist and turn just to hear you say
    That you still think I'm beautiful
    I'm worth a chance
    Even still today

    The battle plan has left me weak and worn
    Into directions, I feel like I've been torn
    We used to live without the shame
    We used to love without the blame

    We're going up and down
    Hold on
    We're crashing to the ground
    And anytime you kneel
    I'll open up again
    You reach inside of me
    And then you pull the pin
    And then you pull the pin
    Oh, you pull the pin
    And then you pull the pin

    We're doing penance for all our petty crimes
    On our knees, oh we're just killing time
    First we bend and then we break
    And I don't wanna be too late to change

    Oh, I saw your light when I looked into the mirror
    And then the past began to disappear
    You know my lies were full of fear
    And can you still forgive me, dear?

    We're going up and down
    Hold on
    We're crashing to the ground
    And any time you kneel
    I open up again
    You reach inside of me
    And then you pull the pin
    And then you pull the pin
    Oh, you pull the pin
    And then you pull the pin

    Your words can lift me up or crush me to dust again
    Can't tell if we are flying or falling to the end
    Your words can lift me up or crush me to dust again
    Can't tell if we are flying or falling to the end

    We're going up and down
    Hold on
    We're crashing to the ground
    And any time you kneel
    I open up again
    You reach inside of me
    And then you pull the pin
    And then you pull the pin
    Oh, and you pull the pin
    And then you pull the pin
