Opening You

I wanted to open you

I wanted to pierce through your crust

But you're so, so cold

You won't let me blow away the dust

I walk barefoot in the rain

I walk barefoot in the rain

I'm somewhere over the rainbow

But you're somewhere underneath

I want to show you out

Of this dull, cold metal sheath

I look straight into the sun

I look straight into the sun

This strain must be released

It must be tossed into the air…

We have to rip each other's hearts out

Until there's nothing left but care

I'll pick a fight

I'll scream and yell and fret

I'll say things I'll never mean

And then live to regret

But I'll know I've let it out

But I'll know I've let it out

Go on, hit me

Give me all you've got

Beat me to a guilty pulp

And leave me there to rot

Just so you'll finally let it out

Just so you'll finally let it out

This strain must be released

And this is the only way

So I'm guilty and I'm bleeding but

I've said what I have to say

Then we'll rise from our anger

Because we'll cling to our devotion

And the cards will all be played

And we'll be sick of this commotion

Then we'll reach our hands in friendship

Weary, nothing holding back

And remember that friendship is

Despite all that we lack

So please, will you just let me

Undo the friendship from the past

So we can weave something else

Something that will last?

I need to do something

I need to break you through

And this is the only way

The only way to open you
