How will you fare when you see me cry?
How will you fare when you see me smile?
How will you fare when my body starts to die?

How will you know if I'm born to lead?
How will you know if I'm born to bleed?
How will you know if I'm good enough this?

Take my ears. Take my eyes.
Teach my vocal cords how not to lie.
Take my razors. Take my knife.
Teach me how to stay alive.

How will you be when you see me go?
How will you be? I'll never know.
How will you be when my mother's all alone?

Make sure to tell the story
of how I loved eternally,
and how that became the end of me.

Take my lungs. Take my heart.
Tear my body apart.
Take my organs. Leave the noose.
Give away everything that someone else can give a better use.
