It's the quiet things that no one ever knows
The things that no one ever shows
And so the story goes

We lay it all down
And take the punishing blows
One after the other
Coming from a brother
A mother or a father

It doesn't seem to bother
The world keeps spinning
But we're all ending

Twisting fraying
Betraying
The friends we've held for years
Who've wiped away our tears
Stabbed in the back
No turning back

We lay it all down
And take the punishing blows
One after the other
Killing our brothers
For the sake of another

We leave these words here at the alter
Promises to God to try not to faultier
Walk out the doors and forget we spoke them
Like religions just a celebrities trend

This may very well be the end
And we're all about breaking
Never learned how to bend
Take our hearts and tie them up
Still frayed we come undone
And destroy the ones we love

We lay it all down
And take the punishing blows
One after the other
We lay it all down
For the sake of another

I wrote this from inspiration I found in the song The quiet things no on ever knows by Band New. Originally wrote it to match the rythem of the song but decided to just keep the first line and write from there. Hope you like it.
