Savior, savior
Suffer as one
Separate as three
You’re always gunna get her
Blood in the water
Wept or turned
Anguish with a bad back
Wine in our collective mouth
What we excluded defining us
Goddamn you’ve got me
Something about the way you move
No one loves a martyr
But they remember them
Accused with fire
Hold them close in times of need
Martyred on your behalf
Unwilling to sacrifice television or comfort
I’ll leave myself to the lions
The pride of my hometown
Whispers keep me together
Momma knows best
As you tear at me
A comment at a time
They’ll believe when I come back
I’ve got the scars to prove it
