"Stick Together"

we say goodbye at the beginning of the night
when the rest of this little town will turn out their bedroom lights
we say goodbye before we hit the road
because the paths we take are not the ones that everybody knows
we say goodbye with this fear in our hearts
of the people who will do their best to tear our worlds apart
we say goodbye not knowing the next time
we will meet and if theres a chance that we will be alive
cause we dont know how far they will go with us this time

so lets tell each other that we love them whenever we can
lets keep each other safe as we possibly can
be careful keep quiet most important of all
dont push the ones you love far enough for them to fall
cause when we fall we cant stick together
and we have to stick together

we have secrets we have treasures we have our plans
but they can never be measured by the ways of consequence
cause we cant be sure how fucked up the state decides to react
so we burn notes encrypt our messages and find it hard to trust
every single person that we are desperate to love
cause those outside our circles are always the enemy to us
and we dont know how far they will go with us this time

i see that you are hurting i see that you've been beaten
i see they cut you deep into your very existence
if you need to take some time
if you need to get away
we can all work together to find somewhere warm and dry to stay
cause this will never be safe
and this will never be easy
and we will need to call our parents to let them know we're still breathing
but if we hold each other near every step of the way
then maybe it'll be better, maybe it will be better

so lets tell each other that we love them whenever we can
lets keep each other safe as we possibly can
be careful keep quiet most important of all
dont push the ones you love far enough for them to fall
cause when we fall we cant stick together
and we have to stick together
