Bang bang go the coffin nails Like a breath exhaled, Then gone forever. It seems like just yesterday How did I miss the red flags raised?
Raise these back to the days we left. We braved these bitter storms together. Brought to his knees he cried, But on his feet he died.
What god would damn a heart? And what god drove us apart? What god could...
Make it stop Let this end. Eighteen years pushed to the ledge. It's come to this, A weightless step. On the way down singing, Woah, woah.
Bang bang from the closet walls, The schoolhouse halls, The shotgun's loaded. Push me and I'll push back. I'm done asking, I demand.
From a nation under god, I feel it's love like a cattle prod. Born free, but still they hate. Born me, no, I can't change.
It's always darkest just before the dawn. So stay awake with me Let's prove them wrong.
Make it stop. Let this end, Eighteen years pushed to the ledge. It's come to this, A weightless step. On the way down singing, Woah, woah.
The cold river washed him away, But how could we forget. Gathering some candles, but not their tongues.
And too much blood has flown from the wrist, Of the children shamed For those they chose to kiss. Who will rise to stop the blood. We're coming for, Insisting on, a different beat, yeah. A brand new song.
Woah, woah. Woah, woah. Woah, woah.
Make it stop. Let this end, This life choose me I'm not lost in sin The bare I stand of who I am I'll plan to go on living
Make it stop. Let this end, All these years pushed to the ledge. The bare I stand of who I am I'll plan to go on living
