We're dying a slow death
We're wounded but we won't wear a patch
We live for the bleeding
And wear every scar like a badge

Except for the losing we've won
At never quite knowing we're done
We torture ourselves
With 10,000 cuts

We're up then, down again
Everything between us is extremes
We get it together
Then were tearing apart at the seams

We advance then retreat
For the sake of our feet
That get tired from marching so long

And these knives and these shields
Are the weapons we wield
We won't fire a gun cause it's wrong

No, we'd rather feel
10,000 cuts

Here's my white flag, I surrender
These tactics are wearing so thin
Oh, the battle has its splendor
But what's the point when nobody can win?

So I'll make the next move
Without something to prove
Because baby, it has to be done

Yeah the future's unclear
And the end might be near
But it feels good to lay down these arms

Cause we need to heal
These 10,000 cuts
Yeah we need to heal
These 10,000 cuts
