Lyrics

How young are you gonna be when you die?
I guess I’ve never really thought about that
You're dying when you start thinking like that
All I know is time is undefeated so far

Get right with god before it's time
I hear the telephone works both ways
Think he could make a little effort someday
I got an awful lot going on with the things that I can see

And what I see are reasons that I bleed
And the blood I give to her, and her
That's all there is

It's only love that keeps us here
This food and these drinks they’re all poison
And life is death
So die well with some good distractions
At the end there is only love

Separate these lies like there's a truth
How do you know and who the hell told you?
You've all been lying since you murdered my youth
I know you're gonna take what's left
But you'll never see me run

No here I am
Can you see what's in these hands?
It's everything I need to see to breath to feel

It's only love that keeps us here
This food and these drinks they’re all poison
And life is death
So die well with some good distractions
At the end there is only love

I lie awake on this earth
I lay with all that I love
And all I need on this earth
Not what’s below or above

It's only love that keeps us here
This food and these drinks they’re all poison
And life is death
So die well with some good distractions
At the end there is only love
At the end there is only love
