Wear it like a tourniquet
Promise that you won't forget but you do
Parade it like an injury while you mock the mysteries
But they're true

Why get it right when you only end up carrying the blind?
C'mon get it wrong and let yourself get shattered into song!
Maybe you've been even all along

Made it back from 13 hells
One last secret left to tell
Oh well

They crow about their tourniquet
They promise that they won't forget
But they do, but they do
They treat it like an injury
While you mock their mysteries
But you do what you should do.

Why get it right when the next step is up and out of time?
C'mon get it wrong
Let yourself get shattered into song
Even you've been even all along

Been hearing 13 bells
One last secret left to tell

Awww Hell

Its covered you in scars
You've fallen out of Light
But it isn't what you are
What you are is out of sight
You come from the stars
You fell into this life
Now its just what we are...
