Brendan Steere - When I'm Stoned Lyrics

Give me a word: two syllables
Into my ear, and set me
Loose into the darkness of the street
I cannot trust my instincts or my feet
Let it be soft, let it be ours
Inside a room, the morning
Hours were made for counting your mistakes
I give what I can, all else you will take
[Chorus]
And when I'm stoned I want to die
And when I'm stoned I want to cry
And when I'm stoned I see your eyes
[Verse 2]
And if I'm a pawn in bigger games
What can I do? It is so strange
That people hurt each other still
A carving knife, a bullet, or a pill
If they have souls, they have no hearts
Deaf to our cries, deaf to our art
Power never leads to love
I hate them all, but hatred's not enough
[Chorus]
And when I'm stoned I want to die
And when I'm stoned I want to cry
And when I'm stoned I see your eyes
Cuz when I'm with you, things just stall
There's no one dying, none at all
And I realize we're all very small
Very small
