When We Were Free

When I'm a child again
I'll cut my body open wide
So when I get older I will know
That I got everything that I could get from this old life
I'm not looking backwards anymore

When I hear sirens
I'll call everybody close to me
So when I get notified they'll see
That I said everything that I could say when we were free
And there's nothing hanging from my teeth

This colored condemnation
Makes for useless conversation
It's such an empty affirmation
"I want it now"

When I'm a shadow
I'll float under you and fill your room
So when the lights come on we'll know
That I did everything that I could do to stay with you
I've always had a hard time letting go
