Stop (Live)

I know a sickness, so ancient and cross
No crucifix could ever fix enough
But in the basement of a church
These people, they talk
There is a line that must be walked
If you wanna make it stop
Then stop

I know a place where the future is denied
I know a hand that twitches inside
For some of us the glass is filled with lights
But if the honey makes you sick
Honey, there is a line
Must be walked
If you wanna make it stop
Then stop

Lie down
You don't have to talk
Slow down
Slow down
It's not your fault
Just look around
There's so many more of us
So many moreof us
And you are not alone


Call in the backup and the backup comes
But nobody can help you if you won't
Inside your chest your heart is just hurt
Behind your eyes a need replaced a want

I know a sickness so ancient and cross
A crucifix could never fix enough
I know a past when the future is lost
I know a line that must be walked

There is a darkness and there is a light
And there is a choice
For a balance to be made every night
A weakness must be lost
If you want it to stop
