i was a prayer lyrics – alkaline trio

i am waiting ’til there’s nothing left
i’m a prayer, all you see is breath
i am empty, i am skin and bones, i’m a ribcage
well, i’m out the door with apathy
but i’m coming home with sympathy
i am realized, i am shamed, i choose to stay here

you got a sign, so i paid the ransom
you felt sorry, so i felt the wrath come
had a nice grip on my life ’til you twisted my arm
my arm

there’s a song i love so much i stole
every precious note i took, i sold
now i spit out words, do you see my lungs on the dance floor?
to a hopeless cause, i sold my soul
a romantic plastic piece of sh*t you can mold
until i break into chokable pieces

you got a sign, so i paid the ransom
you felt sorry, so i felt the wrath come
had a nice grip on my life ’til you twisted my arm
my arm

and i open up like the back of a book
i ruin everything with just a quick look
and i settle down like a rocket explodes
hit the ground, but how far out who knows

you got a sign, so i paid the ransom
you felt sorry, so i felt the wrath come
had a nice grip on my life ’til you twisted my arm
my arm
