To break the silence, break the ice
To break taboo, to pay the price
You wanted more than you could bear
To see the signals in the air

Sat on an A-bomb to keep the pace
Shuttered the soul in, a downward face
Retired the heirlooms, it’s not her place
To decide

Her younger sister sits and stares (she’s got a new drug and her friends got theirs)
Their every thought laid open bare (they’re bought but she just don’t care)
She likes to hide just like her friends (she wants what she can’t defend, yeah)
And disavow what’s left to them

And when she resurfaces, and her eyes get clear
That’s when she knows she’s not an anyone, yeah she’s someone’s anyone
Yeah when the needle’s pulled out, of her thirsty veins
That’s when she knows she’s not an anyone, yeah she’s someone’s anyone
