lyrics

Josie was a little boy,
Well he never slept without his toys
He never left that room
Never bit more than he'd chew.
Summer came too fast one day
And the children ran so far away
from dingy, dusty school light
Out into the day

I'm sorry for the world
I'm sorry for the tubes in your arms
Simple pleasures robbed from us
I'm sorry for the stars
and the wishes you ask of them
That won't ever come true,
though I could never tell you that

Josie was a little boy,
well he read his books and did his chores.
And he wondered about the sky,
and how the Earth is round but we're all flat inside.
And one day death kicked in the door,
Took Josie's breath and all we lived for
Was crushed to carbon rubble in the cages of our chests.

I'm sorry for the world
I'm sorry for the tubes in your arms
Simple pleasures robbed from us
I'm sorry for the stars
and the wishes you asked of them
That never did come true,
though I could never tell you that

I'm sorry for the world
I'm sorry for the tubes in your arms
Simple pleasures robbed from us
I'm sorry for the loves,
and the lives you cannot make
And the hearts you cannot mend
and the ones you cannot break.
