lyrics

We were just kids
When it all started happening
Caught in the tempest
Abandoned and reckless
and family
And then I learned how to sleep
Falling fast in your arms
The screams getting duller, their ammunition
Disarmed

I can't believe you could understand
The concept of killing a losing hand
Clenching to dreams I would dare to forget
The blood in my hair and the blood on the steps
The Blood in my hair and the blood on the steps
Blood in my hair and there was nothing left

We are just kids
And this is really happening
Alone, unprotected, ignored and defenseless
and family
And then I learned how to breathe
Erase the scars from my arms
Calm and collected, I woke up and turned off the car

I can't believe you could understand
The concept of killing a losing hand
Clenching to dreams I would dare to forget
The blood in my hair and the blood on the steps
The Blood in my hair and the blood on the steps
Blood in my hair and there was nothing left

Hold on so I can let go
For once an anchor in this undertow
Pull me in so I don't wash away
In the current of these memories

I can't believe you could understand
The concept of killing a losing hand
Clenching to dreams I would dare to forget
The blood in my hair and the blood on the steps
The Blood in my hair and the blood on the steps
Blood in my hair and there was nothing left
