Joke about nothing and you'll be forgiven
The laughs are just dying out one by one
The lonelies are coming to gather their forces
Left on a string, the emptiness forges us on and on
On and on

A weakness so strong you could wrap your arms around it
Smothered cheeks and smothered arms
Sad but it's not, maybe just for a moment
Why won't you hold me? Why won't you carry me on and on?

No more patient
On and on
No more patient

Simple you might think but wary of reason
You give up on what you think's dying out
Your words aren't funny, your poetry's false
Maybe they'll like it, maybe they won't

You can face them on
No more patient
Face them on
No more patient
Face them on
No more patient
Face them on
No more patient

Hey there young man come understand
The ways you need to heal
I see your stress come take our test
Come on this shit is real

You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help

I went downtown to look around
And see how people feel
This lady beckons me to come
And "Son, why don't ya kneel?"

You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help

We let you in, we see your face
And then we slap you on the wrist
And when you try to leave, it's much too late
'Cause we've got you on the motherfucking list

You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
You need help, you need help
