I used to be such a burning example
I used to be so original
I used to care, I was being careful
Made sure I showed it to those that I love

I used to sleep without a single stir
'Cause I was about my father's work

Well Take me out tonight,
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
My own stone around my neck,
Be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give

I used to pray a God was listening
I used to make my parents proud
I was the glue that kept my friends together
Now they don't talk and we don't go out

I used to know the name of every person I kissed
Now I made this bed and I can't fall asleep in it

Take me out tonight,
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
My own stone around my neck,
Be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give

Throw me that lifeline,
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
My own stone around my neck
Be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give

Never hit the brakes
There's no time to save him
He's run out in the street
Anybody know his name?
I think I recognize him
Sure it's him?
Running from that mistake

Whoa

So take me out tonight
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
My own stone around my neck
Be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give

To save my life tonight
The ship of fools I'm on will sink
My own stone around my neck
Be my breath, there's nothing I wouldn't give
