lyrics

My faith is born of failure
I know what I know
It drags me down but I tow that line
With a sorrow heavy soul
and, a stone among the coals
there is no escape now from the fire

Don't choke, Don't choke
Move away from me and breathe better
Don't choke, Don't choke
My heart reads like the weather
Don't choke

I was born to a veteran
bitter and dis-eased
I still crawl in the shadow he cast
His violent life left its mark on all our hearts
We buried him with a hole in his chest

Don't choke, Don't choke
Move away from me and breathe better
Don't choke, Don't choke
My heart reads like the weather
Don't choke

At the table of the master
There are birds, beasts and bread
The wine in the cups that flow over
They pour down around my head

With our hearts just how they are
All cut and beat to shit
Our minds, they flow over
Until all we see is black and red
A tightening of the chest
Hold your breath and count to ten
The room is thick with the burden
of wrongs we can't amend

Don't choke, Don't choke
Move away from me and breathe better
Don't choke, Don't choke
My heart reads like the weather
Don't choke
Don't choke, Don't choke
Move away from me and breathe better
Don't choke, Don't choke

my heart is under the weather
