A Broken Record

I should clean this pen
Probably this paper too
Too much dust on these words
They've all been said before
So no one wants to listen
In fact
No one
Wants to hear them anymore
They're like a broken record
We're like a broken record
Keep making the same mistakes
Over and over again

I'll play you
This broken record
May not like it
But you're going to hear it
I'll heal your
Self-inflicted
Blinded eyes
I'll hold your head straight
So you can't look away
See it
For what it is
Throw away your lies

We don't even dream anymore
Just work our lives for
Some blood money
Too concerned with
Our bright lights
Can you live in the dark?
Could we live in the dark?

I'll play you
This broken record
You may not like it
But you're going to hear it
I'll heal your
Self-inflicted
Blinded eyes
I'll hold your head straight
So you can't look away
See it
For what it is
Throw away your lies

And when we die
We'll be forgotten
They'll build
Over our graves
But we still got life
And I'm going to play
This broken record so loud
They'll be cracks in the floor

Maybe it's the truth
We can't
See
Maybe it's the lies
We
Want
Maybe it's the truth
We can't
See
Maybe it's the lies
We
Want
