How We Begin

lyrics

We drink straight from the bottle and so we begin
Lay our lives on the table as we're stumbling in
And we’re humming a flame that’s burning within
The light will catch us…

Buy the drum, bang a run
Buy the smoke by the gallon
Grab the rope by the throat
Buy the tale, sell the hope

Grinding my teeth
This is not how we end - this is how we begin
My hands are weak
This is not how we end - this is how we begin

It's cold in this water - does it hurt to live?
Was it worth getting wet? We all learn to swim
Taking turns as your savior as we swallow our sin
We're just treading water...

Buy the drum, bang a run
Buy the smoke by the gallon
Grab the rope by the throat
Buy the tale, sell the hope

Grinding my teeth
This is not how we end - this is how we begin
My hands are weak
This is not how we end - this is how we begin

Grinding My Teeth / My Hands Are Weak
