  1. Suffer Well

From the album Consider Your Cage

Lyrics

Suffer Well

When you give up the run
Lay down the fight
Take on me
And my particular line of sight
See, the clock turns
You don’t get those hours back
So why struggle, baby?
Why push against the fact

That you and me
Suffer well
You and me
Pray, baby, tell

All of this
Is just a taste of the evidence
Smolder inside

They will load the guns with misery
March you toward the fires
Bearing every good intention Hell requires
And once there the reaching hands of dust
Draw faces in the flame
And the day you die depends on who you blame

Take your own advice
Lay down the knife
A mess of particles in space
Pretending love is something we devised
The clock turns
And I will only be here
Until the light divides
Could be just enough time

For you and me
To suffer well
You and me
Asleep where we fell

And all of this
Is just a taste of the evidence
Smolder inside
