Got to hold all the pain
Leave it alone
Might go away

Slow the sound
Look around
There's no one holding you down
No one but yourself

Got to have all the pain
Set it down
Might run away

Hold out
Look around
There's no one holding you down
No one but yourself

You wanna feel
hollowed out

There's a knot in your side
And it's been there your whole life
And you like it that way
If you kept all your parts
Then you wouldn't feel hollowed out
But you like it that way
Yes you like it that way
