Sit back and watch it burn
A love like ours grows taciturn
So many things get left to learn
Seems all we do with spite
Just to hurry home
Or pray you're right
Cut slowly lower, capture near in sight

If it's all the same to you
Should we expect a faith renewed?
Still stiff and underused
Won't sleep the clouds away
That final straw it took to break
Fell hard and wide awake

Maybe it's not real
You're made of steel lately
Stake your goodbyes
On something sure
When pulses slow
You've known it the whole time

The odds are stacked again
Reluctant hours spent pressed to skin
We both know where you been

Maybe it's not real
You're made of steel lately
Stake your goodbyes
On something sure
When pulses slow

Sit back and watch it burn
Those other scars aren't my concern
Really don't care what you've heard
Can't mime the strength today
It's all for naught if that's the case
Sincerely, such a waste

Maybe it's not real
You're made of steel lately
Stake your goodbyes
On something sure
Not over
Baby, this might heal
You're all ideals
Don't it show
We've known it the whole time
