hospitality lyrics – funeral for a friend

forget the letters just sleep sound tonight
pull back the covers without a fight
but as we dance by emergency light
i fail to swallow my tongue
and i’m still here bleeding

so pull this switch and see my body twitch
oh, as we dance on this memory
a light left blinking on it’s own
and my blood is flowing
down through this machine
in hope and desire in hope i expire

[chorus]
turn off this machine
cause this is the only thing that’s keeping me alive
turn off this machine
cause this is the only thing that’s keeping me alive

so pull this switch and see my body twitch
as we dance on this memory
despair has devoured me whole
a seed wont grow from this soul
this pill wont cure my disease
can’t you kill this beating heart

[chorus]

please nurse my batteries are running low
please nurse oh i think i’m running low
left here swallowed by this fear
that you will always keep me here
to close your eyes and pray for this to go away

cause i’m not angry, tired or sore
more of a man than i was before
is this the cause i’m looking for?

i plead forgive me
cause i’m no martyr
is this the cause that i’m looking for?
[x2]

cause i’m not angry, tired or sore
more of a man than i was before
is this the cause that i’m looking for?
[x2]

i plead forgive me
cause i’m no martyr
you’re not the cause that i’m looking for
[x3]
