Song Lyrics Appreciation Day #1


Our Hell
by Emily Haines

First went, room is hard to find
We're paralyzed, we apologize
Our hell is a good life

Last went wrong, where's my prize?
Under the lights
Can we call it in, we'll be on the road
Can we stop?
When we stop
My back will turn your face toward the fence

What if what it was it isn't now?
What if what it was it isn't now?

All this weight is on, it's worse
We're moderate, we modernize
Til our hell is a good life

Oh, we know what to forget
How to do right
Colouring in the black hole
Can we stop?
When we stop
My hands will shake, my eyes will burn, my throat will ache
Watching you turn from me towards your friends

What if what it was it isn't now?
What if what it was isn't?
Punishment to stall, it's done
What if what was in was missing out?
What if what it was it isn't now?

There's a pattern in the system
There's a bullet in the gun
That's why I tried to save you
But it can't be done
It can't be done
