Norma Jean — Songs Sound Much Sadder lyrics

We are smashed men, still moving.
We've tried everything in the book.
No stranger, to failure, death with a steady heartbeat.
Scratching into any surface it wants.
Joy and beauty rejected so many times.
A world of hurt, a heart of false hope.
While we thought that we were learning how to live, we have been learning how to die.
I should have known, we will be legends.
Our hopes and dreams and our worst nightmares.
Our worst nightmares have now come true.
Tonight when this deep sleep falls on men.
Driven by an instinct more powerful than life itself.
From honor, and hope, from hope and devastation.
Overfed and unconcerned
It came with teeth and claw
Oh, hated form of emotion
You have become so obvious.
My friend, the fatal habit of being myself.
Ok, there's hope.
Step down with all your friends.
