A boy is born Wrapped up in her arms Protection from a world In a world he can’t disarm Until… Their eyes meet Their lives collide And they hide from harm The boy and the tearaway I’m a tearaway We’re two halves of the same The boy and the tearaway Two lives entwined And held within a shell One ends up in heaven While the other hides its frozen face in hell Their eyes meet Their lives collide And they hide from harm The boy and the tearaway I’m a tearaway I’m a tearaway today Then another, I’m me

A dawn, a frail light Stole upon the morning Casting shadows of the pretty things That hide in the dark Is it his back that’s breaking in half? No it’s not his place to show them the door This is not how we do it here boy We’re all the same Everything he lived for passed away Everything he lived for came… Dancing out of the doldrums Standing taller, made of ember Breathing in the fallout from the wars His downy lip lifts up in anger Forms a blank expression, calmer Wonders if he’ll grow up pure and young No it’s not his place to show them the door This is not how we do it here boy We’re all the same Everything he lived for passed away Everything he lived for passed away Can he pretend he’s the modern man? When this is all he understands His eyes are shot and they’re fucked from drugs He lifts his hand to cover up his mug We’re all the same Everything he lived for passed away Everything he lived for passed away

There comes a point in time When the tables are turned So ill defined are the measures of life and death combined Into something between our states of mind Man proposes, God disposes Everything’s lost that He knew life owed us Where are the bright new worlds As the old disown us now? A plan to fill a void In a life hollowed out by being employed In a station to sink a hope that’s buoyed By the promise of life Unkempt, destroyed Man proposes, God disposes Everything’s lost that He knew life owed us Where are the bright new worlds As the old disown us? Now we’re sorry for The way we acted out the things we saw We’re sorry for The way we failed, the faces we once wore We’re sorry for The way we danced, the way we kissed, The things we grabbed, the things we missed Those empty hearted promises Enlisted in the dust encumbered floor A glance and not a trace Proletariat eyes look out the face Of a classless man Born to waste his time Fitting in a lonely place Man proposes, God disposes Everything’s lost that He knew life owed us Where are the bright new worlds As the old disown us? Now we’re sorry for The way we acted out the things we saw We’re sorry for The way we failed, the faces we once wore We’re sorry for The way we danced, the way we kissed, The things we grabbed, the things we missed Those empty hearted promises Enlisted in the dust encumbered floor
