lyrics

Be kind – you know that you could hurt me
Be kind.
Behind your back is an arrow
And behind my back is a wall.

But I am part of the problem.

In my tin mirror, I can’t see clear enough to tell a saint from a criminal.
So don’t you paint me a liar – don’t you blame what you hate – don’t you play me the fool.
‘Cause I know when I’ve spoken too soon.

Running out of clocks to count the times I’ve run out of keys and found locks on the doors.
The iron’s made of ashes – the iron’s made of ashes.
And the shadow – it grows and grows and grows, I fear…

I am part of the problem.
Age makes everything harder.

In my tin mirror, I can’t see clear enough to tell a saint from a criminal.
So don’t you paint me a liar – don’t you blame what you hate – don’t you play me the fool.
‘Cause I know when I’ve spoken too soon.

I am part of the problem.
