A deathbed promise - Strangers

Straps on her heels
For some crumpled dollar bills
A body full of pills
So she doesn't have to feel
The still eyes that sit in silence
And the hands that are prone to violence
Beaten down by the men that she trusted

She's running away from her life
No longer to be the victim
She says
"I'm carving myself out the picture, but leaving a stain only you could remember
I'm putting this all behind me, but leaving a stain only you could remember."

The fingerprints of kin
Draw the stories in his skin
Revulsion latches on
And worms its way in
It worms its way in
It's so disgusting
It's so disgusting


He's running away from his life
No longer to be the victim
He says
"I'm carving myself out the picture, but leaving a stain only you could remember
I'm putting this all behind me, but leaving a stain only you could remember"

We could be the change
(Change)
We could be the change
(Change)
We are the strangers
That you don't see
We are

Running away from our lives
No longer to be the victims
We say
"We're carving ourselves out the picture, leaving a stain only you could remember
And putting this all behind us, leaving a stain only you could remember."
(You could remember)
