when i was alone
i thought about it
i thought long about it
cause when you're alone you've got time
there time is on your side

at first swallow the pill is bitter
the pill is bitter and you know that pains sure to come
you'll bleed til your hollow
but there's no other way to go

so when you're alone
you should think about it
you should think long about it
or you can ignore your darkening shadow
that's closing all your doors

everyone knows facades run shallow
but make us thick and slow
and i will admit
i'm getting tired of putting on a show

it's ok to be broken
you haven't lost your value
