lyrics

Everything I know...
Means to exist? Or to an end?
Forcing me back
Promise me you won't leave me like this
I know you can't promise me that

Oh, everybody knows somebody, knows somebody, knows somebody

Wears you like a coat
Tatters and fray
The pattern would be all the rage
Collar at your throat, nice and easy
The strangle should strengthen with age

Feel your bones break

Aching and crying...
Aching and crying...
All the while knowing...

That you can't help but feel so alone
What a harrowing cycle
And you can't wait to kneel and atone
For the rust on your bible

Oh, everybody knows somebody, knows somebody, knows somebody

Promise me you won't leave me this way
Oh, it isn't your promise to make
Somebody show me how to cope
Make this easy
Not anymore....ever awake

Feel your earth shake

Aching and crying...
Aching and crying...
All the while knowing...

That you can't help but feel so alone
What a harrowing cycle
And you can't wait to kneel and atone
For the rust on your bible

Oh, everybody knows somebody, knows somebody, knows somebody
