lyrics

I lay awake for several hours
Thought of all the plans we’d laid
How we would topple all the towers
With the music we had made
And we would reach the stars together
And we’d pick one for ourselves
Let the bigots keep their heaven
We’re much happier in hell

So let us drink
Let us drink
Let us laugh until we cry
Let us stroke each other’s
Swollen pride…

I've bit my tongue so many times now
That it’s getting hard to speak
The truth you're seeking in the darkness
Is a game of hide and seek
You talk to strangers for a living
But can never phone a friend
I hope you’re happy, hope you’re happy
I hope you’re happy in the end

So let us drink
Let us drink
Let us laugh until we cry
Let us stroke each other’s
Swollen pride…

If you want it that bad it’s yours
Just take it
I don’t want it back
If you need it so bad
It's yours.
Just take it, just take it.
If it hurts this much
You keep it and hold it
And I’ll wish you luck
If you’d kill for it
Really kill for it, be careful
It might kill you back.

So let us drink, Let us drink
Let us laugh until we cry
Let us stroke each other, stroke each other, choke each other

So let us drink, Let us drink
Let us laugh until we cry
Let us stroke each other, stroke each other, choke each other

So let us drink, Let us drink
Let us laugh until we cry
Let us stroke each other’s swollen
And foolish… 
Pride…
