[Verse 1]
I learned to starve and beat this animal
Until I found out I lived in a temple
Got such a temper and keeps the temperature
Rising till the water is boiling

[Chorus]
Have to live on the edge that's bleeding
My broken teeth are teaching me something
I'm not so sure what matters so much here
Will matter at all in the hereafter

[Verse 2]
I thought I could write
I thought I'd trade it for another life
Now I realize songs are fossils
No one wants to watch a suicide I decided
To keep digging up more bones

[Chorus]
Have to live on the edge that's bleeding
My broken teeth are teaching me something
I'm not so sure what matters so much here
I'm not so sure what matters here
I'm not so sure what you think matters so much here
Will matter at all in the hereafter

[Bridge]
I can't handle anymore cruelty
My hands are burned and scarred from holding way too much already
I've been way too hard on me
Please be gentle, be gentle please

[Chorus]
I'm not so sure what matters so much here
I'm not so sure what matters here
I'm not so sure what you think matters so much here
Will matter at all in the hereafter

In the hereafter...
The hereafter...
In the hereafter...
