Anthem for the weak

my friends don’t like you much

i’m a victim to your touch

running ‘round hands free

but you got a hold on me

 

you keep me stuck in bed

when you linger in my head

screaming your profanities

i’m gripping tight to the key, the key, the key

 

i try to ignore everything you say

but i’d have to forget my own name

 

you’re writing anthems for the weak

i don’t wanna hear ‘em but i’m weak

i’m black and i’m blue and i’m tired of singing with you

you’re writing anthems for the weak

i’m hooked on every word because i’m weak

well my mouth won’t stop moving but every song feels out of tune

 

i don’t go outside

i don’t like the sunshine

you told me too many times that it will burn my eyes

my eyes my eyes

 

i’m not good at guitar

you say that i won’t go

far

for some reason i listen

i always seem to listen

 

i try to ignore every word you say

but i’d have to forget my own name

 

you’re writing anthems for the weak

i don’t wanna hear ‘em but i’m weak

i’m black and i’m blue and i’m tired of singing with you

you’re writing anthems for the weak

i’m hooked on every word because i’m weak

well my mouth won’t stop moving but every song feels out of tune

 

you’re writing anthems for the weak

i don’t wanna hear ‘em but i’m weak

i’m black and i’m blue and i’m tired of singing with you

you’re writing anthems for the weak

i’m hooked on every word ‘cause i’m weak

well my mouth won’t stop moving but every song feels out of tune
