alibis lyrics – marianas trench

from the scr*pes and bruises
to the familiar abuses
i’ll kick and scream but it never changes anything

i could spill my guts out
wearing my best little girl pout
and i almost missed it
but n*body said that this was gonna be easy

this is not the man i hoped to be
and i’m just trying to stop the bleeding
i don’t know how to word it
i just started to deserve it
and all my, all my faces are alibis
and me, i’m half the man i wanted to be

most times it all comes out wrong
i don’t know the words but i’ll hum along
there’s nothing famillar here anymore
to anyone or anything left to feel alive

and i still taste that sickness
and it makes me crazy without it at best
but i’m in the same place i used to be
but i’m trying harder not to be

this is not the man i hoped to be
and i’m just trying to stop the bleeding
i don’t know how to word it
i just started to deserve it
and all my, all my faces are alibis
and me, i’m half the man i wanted to be

so what am i? what am i? so what am i?

and all my, all my faces are alibis
this is not the man i hoped to be
and i’m just trying to stop the bleeding
i don’t know how the words go
i just started not to say no

don’t want it, don’t get it
i know you won’t regret it
don’t surface, don’t surface
and i feel so d*mned worthless
another day is gone and all my faces are alibis
all my faces are alibis

and me, i’m half the man i wanted to be
