lyrics

Funerals are for the living, nothing here is for the dead
We have reached the time and place to fill ourselves with regret
Sympathy is for the weak
I’d rather stand on my two feet than to let my last breath be wasted on apologies

The rain is getting harder here
The lights will flicker, signaling a call to arms, a battle cry
Knowing time’s not on my side
If I have to die, just let me die

I wonder how I would be
If I moved forward on this one way street
No tears to cry or breaths to hold in, just moving forward until the end

Funerals are for the living, nothing here is for the dead
We have reached the time and place to fill ourselves with regret
Sympathy is for the weak
I’d rather stand on my two feet than to let my last breath be wasted on apologies

(I am trying to be strong, I am trying to be strong)

In this handshake-line procession
With all these "I'm sorry for your loss"-es
It's as empty as this casket and I'm just here
In a room with way too many flowers and I'm choking on the air
And I try to hold my breath but my eyes tear

You never wake up, never go to sleep
You're just lying on your back and it goes
On and on, and on and on, and on and on, and on
