lyrics

GET SOME SCARS

I was coming down fast from where once was wonder
I was coming down fast, black dog on my back.
I was coming down fast from where once was wonder,
I was coming down fast.

The night was cool and bleeding black
As you crawled out across the glass - oh oh!
With my blood and bones and feathers in your teeth.
I swear to God the Ghost and Father sometimes it’s just so much harder
So much harder to hold your breath than to breathe,
But it comes so easily.

Oh while we’re young yeah, let’s go out and get some scars
Because when we’re older we’ll wear them to tell us apart.

No this feeling won’t last, so we sink to a slumber
Singing “every balloon you blow up I burst”
No this feeling won’t last so we sink to a slumber
Screaming “you killed me first”.

Where once was wonder is now the feeling of weeping like the water wheel That just keeps turning till we’re numb - "blue summer, no dice son”
Set these controls for that blue moon just like you did when I was cruel
But if we’re going up and up and up we aren’t coming down too soon.

Oh while we’re young yeah, let’s go out and get some scars
Because when we’re older we’ll wear them to tell us apart.

When I get to the gutter I get up and a show you the scars that I won on my way to the bottom. When I get to the gutter I get up, I get up and I show you the scars.

Oh when we’re older, let’s meet up and show the scars we got when we were young, we’ll need them to tell us apart.
