lyrics

Speak if you want
But say it as if you were dining alone
Cut from your tongue
Make it seem real like you feel it in your bones
With all that you spew
Make sure youre saying something
Or stick to the truth
Like being honest gets you off

Martyrs are gone, martyrs are hard to find
Don’t open your mouth if you cant cross the line
I want to be strong; I want to be good this time
I want to try to make it better now

Telling Stories
Does it make you happy?
Oh you fooled me
Don’t think that’s a good idea

Sing if you want
Let it all out like you want to be free
Act like you’ve won
And everyone else is just swimming in a sea
Of cold apathy and lazy scribes

Martyrs are gone, martyrs are hard to find
Don’t open your mouth if you cant cross the line
I want to be strong; I want to be loud this time
I want to try, so you can hear me know

Telling Stories
Does it make you happy?
Oh you fooled me
Don’t think that’s a good idea
For you to pawn yourself off or
Sell your soul until you get caught
With nothing else and no one but yourself

All and all you’ve had your fun
Wash it off when the day is done
All and all you’ve had your fun
Martyrs are gone, Martyrs are hard to find
Don’t open you mouth if you can’t cross the line
Martyrs are gone, Martyrs are hard to find

Telling Stories
Does it make you happy?
Oh you fooled me
Don’t think that’s a good idea
For you to pawn yourself off or
Sell your soul until you get caught
With nothing else and no one but yourself
