lyrics

Old friend, it's been so long.
Is your head still stuck among the clouds?
Old friend, it's been too damn long.
Is the hummingbird still caged in your wild wild heart?

Are your eyes still red from the storm?
Are you still trying to break these rules and run?
Is that blood I see on your brow?
Would you mind if I took my liberties with you?

Oh we try and try to break and charm.
These well thought excuses make us justified,
To step upon each other's back,
To throw the first stone, to throw the first stone.

These dreams have turned into nightmares.
Are you happy now, are you really happy now?
We've all been hungry for these anthems and heroes.
You were always the first, the first to go

And be hundred miles away to find,
These liars and oracles, do they justify?
Well, step up brother and be first in line
To throw the first stone.
Well, here's your first stone.

Oh we try and try to break and charm.
These well thought excuses make us justified,
To step upon each other's back,
To throw the first stone, to throw the first stone,
To throw the first stone, to throw the first stone.
