lyrics

Just look at those shelves boy, see how they're only filled with memories.
and look at your frame boy, you're empty and i can't fill you up with stories.
i know she's your friend boy, she held you up when you took your very first two steps,
but this is the end boy, believe me when i tell you that she knows it's for the, best.

Chorus.
Sometimes you gotta let someone you love deep inside of you, side of you,
call her by name and she'll come without thinking she'd die for you, die for you,
she's your guardian, she's giving in, oh oh oh.

So c'mon girl, don't act like you've never been on this walk before,
don't you whine girl, you won't have to worry once i lead you out this door,
you're beautiful now girl,
you kept us safe with your every living breath,
but this is the end girl, i tied the knot, on the rope around your neck...

Chorus

Choking through this toxic mist, slowed by all of the obstacles that we hit,
stifled life in grey and brown, the bridge ain't far where we used to cross into town.
knotted again just in case, the choice is made, we must not waste.
she sees it suddenly betrayed, pendulum twitch into the calm decay...

Chorus

Outro:
Put it over your shoulder, you know this isn't over,
don't forget, don't forget your grace boy,
you're not a four-leaf clover,
well it's an old rule, this give and take is bearable,
don't forget don't forget her face boy cause every angel is terrible
