Lyrics

You took one for the team, and none for yourself
As the needle screamed one more hit for your health
A lesson learned well, I guess that’s what it takes
After all we’re all human, we all make mistakes

Did you know that we’d miss you, and let ourselves sink
To our knees in the taverns drowning in drink
Did you see your life’s fabric unfurl
As you laid blue on the sofa dead to the world?

Time is a lie
And sooner or later everyone you love must die

And I don’t feel like talkin’ anymore

Looking back I can see now how fragile we were
Thinking we were invincible, and couldn’t get hurt
But like a plate I was shattered when my heart hit the floor
As your ashes were scattered and you were no more

Time is a lie
And sooner or later everyone you love must die

You took one for the team, and none for yourself
As the needle screamed one more hit for your health
We had to learn somehow, I guess that’s what it takes
After all we’re all human, we all make mistakes

And I don’t feel like talkin’ anymore
