lyrics

Waits around, for someone to take her from this place
Another nose bleed, half­cocked, she's just bugged eyed
Good things come to those who wait, but they've been up for six days straight Breaking Skin Waits around, for someone to slap him in his face
Hangs around with people he calls friends
He can't even make out words, he's on some shit but she's seen worse
Breaking Skin
Don't wait up for me, we're all dying, anyway
Go and light this match up off my skin
Said oh no not again, oh no not again, oh no not again Time to wake up now
Time to wake up now
Waits around, for someone to take her from this place Another nose bleed, full­cocked and now she's fucked Shoulda found her way home, room full of people all alone They're breaking skin
She don't wanna be here no more, said she's had enough He don't know if he loves her more than he loves these drugs When it's time to go she don't wanna walk up out that door They're breaking skin
Don't wait up for me, we're all dying, anyway
Go and light this match up off my skin
Oh no not again, oh no not again, oh no not again Time to wake up
Most beautiful things come from shit
Most beautiful things grow from shit, and I'm waiting
Most beautiful things come from shit
Most beautiful things grow from shit
You won't leave when it’s time to go, you will see we've been here before Bandaged up, broken down, light me up, how's that sound
Knock the crown off my head, the shadow of a man and it's the shell
Of a human punching bag mixed with booze and crystal meth
The amphetamines, all the dreams, the solar system seems in reach
You can clean anything with a sponge and bleach
but I can't figure out how to clean my sheets
I was trippin' 'til I found my savior in a bottle
Now I'm dripping wet with candle wax covering clothes I borrowed
You call it rock bottom, I call it Tuesday
Plant shit, something beautiful has gotta happen today It's gotta happen today, it's gotta happen today
Most beautiful things come from shit
Most beautiful things grow from shit, and I'm waiting Most beautiful things come from shit
Most beautiful things
