You can hold her hand
And show her how you cry
Explain to her your weakness so she understands
And then roll over and die

You can brave decisions
Before you crumble up inside
Spend your time asking everyone else's permission
Then run away and hide

You can sit on chimneys
With some fire up your ***
No need to know what you're doing or waiting for
But if ever anyone should ask
