about

Though this song is quite personal, the lyrics are molded to the story of the Hunger Games. If you read that book before the movie and memes, you'd probably write a song about it, too. Great story in my opinion.

lyrics

Mommy, sorry for the things that I've done
You bury your cross to announce that we've lost,
But I promise that we have won
Find me, Bind me
I'm a victim of recycled lies
We should be on our way
Thank you for the buffet
Eat and run, we don't have much time

Now here I stand on a wobbly stone
Naked and covered in leaves
Scared of what lingers behind hungry fingers
Only God knows what hides in these trees
Bone, Fallen stars
Alone, With nothing but your scars

Daddy, sorry for the things that I've sung
You're easily bruised and I think I've confused
Your red lips for my fiery tongue
Find me, Bind me
I'm a victim of recycled lies
We should be on our way
Thank you for the buffet
Eat and run, we don't have much time

Now here I stand on a wobbly stone
Naked and covered in leaves
Scared of what lingers behind hungry fingers
Only God knows what hides in these trees
Bone, Fallen stars
Alone, With nothing but your scars

Scared of what lingers behind hungry fingers
Only God knows what hides in these trees
