Maybe my suitcase should wait at the station

Maybe they should fill my guitar's coffin with dough

So pour me a glass of emotionless wine

Maybe I cry just so you can feel

Maybe I feel just so you can cry

If I saved you from your dying corpse

Oh how I wonder if you'd need me more

And if I held you at death's dismal embrance

If I brought you back would you give me a break?

Would you say empty apologies which you never intended to mean?

Would you admit to your lies or tell everyone I was making a scene?

Could you bare the infliction of pain which you made me endure

Just so you could calm your nerves?

If I forgave you of things you convicted me of

I'd hope you could spare me just a bit of your love

But if I did unto you as you did unto me

You would never know trust and you would never be free

The chains in which you bound me by would never hear a tearless night

And even if they all forgot your allogations it wouldn't make things alright

I'll wear a shade of crimson

To harbor all my sins in

To remind me of my shame which you so visciously and brutally proclaimed

But you should know that you have

Only yourself to blame

So maybe my suitcase should wait at the station

Maybe they should fill my guitar's coffin with dough

So pour me a glass of emotionless wine 

Maybe I cry just so you can feel

Maybe I feel just so you can cry
