millstone lyrics – brand new

i used to be such a burning example,
i used to be so original.
i used to care, i was being cared for.
made sure i showed it to those that i love.

i used to sleep without a single stir,
’cause i was about my father’s work.

well take me out tonight,
this ship of fools i’m on will sink.
a milestone around my neck,
be my breath, there’s nothing i wouldn’t give.

i used to pray like god was listening.
i used to make my parents proud.
i was the glue that kept my friends together,
now they don’t talk and we don’t go out.

i used to know the name of every person i’d kissed.
now i made this bed and i can’t fall asleep in it.

well take me out tonight,
this ship of fools i’m on will sink.
a milestone around my neck,
be my breath, there’s nothing i wouldn’t give.

throw me that lifeline,
this ship of fools i’m on will sink.
a milestone around my neck
be my breath, there’s nothing i wouldn’t give.

never hit the brakes
there’s no time to save him,
he just ran out in the street
anybody know his name?
i think i recognize him
sure as h*ll paid for that mistake

woah.

so take me out tonight.
this ship of fools i’m on will sink.
a milestone around my neck.
be my breath, there’s nothing i wouldn’t give.

to save my life tonight.
this ship of fools i’m on will sink
a milestone around my neck
be my breath, there’s nothing i wouldn’t give.
