well how many times do i have to tell you?
do as i say, not as i do.
but i know that you don't hear me.
you're so far gone, it's like never knew me.

well i'm still sending up my prayers,
but are they listening up there?

and how small were we down below?
did you think you'd pull that trick and that we'd never know?
and did you think that you were brave
as you flew away with those wings I made?

and i'm still sending prayers to you,
but the smog's too thick and they can't break through...

and now your wings are melting fast.
you're covered in sticky wax.
you're so far gone that you can't turn back,
and from here... i guess it's just down.

and what was it like as you fell?
did you think you'd bust right straight through
and go on straight to hell?
or was there a moment
when you thought you were


from Sweetheart, Keep Your Chin Up, released March 1, 2009
