lyrics

She was not above faking
She was not above leading on
It was not above bleeding, not above choking - not above death.

Carefully proceed my friend
Your next words could be ringing in your ears for years
Carefully proceed my friend
I can only break so much
So much before I’m broke

I am not above begging
I am not above change
but I can overcome her
I can over love her
I can over take her
I can over

Carefully proceed my friend
Your next words could be ringing in your ears for years
Carefully proceed my friend
I can only break so much
So much before I’m broke

You falter
You stumble
You’re always
Giving up the ghost
It crumbles
It buckles
You're always
Giving up the ghost
This world is cruel and unkind
I'm the one calling the shots this time
I won't fail
I won't choke
I won't be
Giving up the ghost

It was not about science
It was not about pain
It was about mercy
About safety
About a cancer

Carefully proceed my friend
Your next words could be ringing in your ears for years
Carefully proceed my friend
I can only break so much
So much before I’m broke

You falter
You stumble
You’re always
Giving up the ghost
It crumbles
It buckles
You're always
Giving up the ghost
This world is cruel and unkind
I'm the one calling the shots this time
I won't fail
I won't choke
I won't be
Giving up the ghost
