Hopeless (Prime Cuts Ver​.​)

lyrics

Our DNA unravels like a doll in the wind
Wrapped up in razor wire waiting to begin
The question why are we forsaken and alone
The wind will dry our skin - the sun will bleach our bones

That sickly green hue shows us who we are
We're atavistic - not going very far
An effigy strung up - on display
A failed belief that we deserve a brighter day

You know you'll never feel this
You know you'll never need this
You know you'll never be them
You know you'll never see when...

Chorus:
Hopeless
Like animals to slaughter
Hopeless
They need us to obey
Fuck this
Come hell or high water it doesn't even matter cuz we're dead anyway

And then this darkest hour - gets darker everyday
Injecting validation in ant rotten way
Now you succumb to this - for you know you have been told
Everybody in the gutter waits to die alone

In this my weakest hour - clinging to desperation
Smile like you mean it and pray for isolation
In this my weakest hour - clinging to desperation
Smile like you mean it and pray for isolation

Don't look - don't touch
Don't need - too much
Don't say - you will
Please don't - stay still

Can't see - can't breathe
Can't have - can we?
Don't wait - too long
We can't - go on

CHORUS

Can you feel hopeless with me?

You know you'll never feel this
You know you'll never need this
You know you'll never be them
You know you'll never see when...
