lyrics

Just a counseled verse and a half-hearted sermon
We are not the means to an end
Just a practiced excuse and an empty muse
We are not the means to an end

Head in the river, pale and thin
We keep to ourselves, strapped to the cars we were born in
Now half-underwater towards a baptism grave
It's not enough to say, "I wish I were brave."
So head on down, oh, head on down.

Tell me what you think about growing older
And how it's never going to change,
Hasn't the sun washed over you with a new face?
Build this bridge to the end, lead these steps with our names
I was so broken, oh, I've been where you've been
With nothing really left to show
I know, our wilted hearts will sing a new hymn
Sinners come from the earth, thieves come from the sun

We are not the means to an end
We are not the means to an end

Feet first, bewildering bleak
We weren't really destined for such pageantry
Body in, scalloped relent
We took advantage of immortal sin
Head on down, oh head on down
It's quite the crutch when we're begging for it now

Tell me what you think about growing older
And how it's never going to change,
Hasn't the sun washed over you with a new face?
Build this bridge to the end, lead these steps with our names
I was so broken, oh, I've been where you've been
With nothing really left to show
I know, our wilted hearts will sing a new hymn
Sinners come from the earth, thieves come from the sun

I need you, to need this more than I do

Speak to me with flesh un-sewn
For now I'll crawl inside your home
Beneath your bones to make a change, to take away everything

Just a counseled verse and a half-hearted sermon
We are not the means to an end
Just a practiced excuse and an empty muse
We are not the means to an end

Thieves come from the sun
