A Beating Heart & a Bottle of Rum Lyrics
A beating heart, a bottle of rum
One is strong, the other numb
One’s convinced the other’s the cure
But these poisonous veins just won’t make me pure

Trapped behind closed walls
Wanna shatter it all
Struggling to stand tall
But it’s just further to fall
You can’t really live unless you live in the moment
But this moment I’m dying
And so I have two things

Tell me of a place where everything’s right
And if it comes before death then I’ll be there tonight
Because I’m watching the world come crumbling down
And as my friends are talking I’m watching the ground

So let me off this ride
I think I lost the guide
This life has taken sides
Guess I’m left out this time
You can’t really live unless you live in the moment
But this moment I’m dying
And so I have two things

My friend’s dad was dying
While his family was watching
So now everyone’s crying
And my friend is sobbing
And in some far away country
Money takes dreaming
So a young girl’s hungry
And the solution’s demeaning
So I’m drinking my sorrows away
And they’re leaving me slowly
But they’ll be back tomorrow
Where they will be haunting me closely

You can’t really live unless you live in the moment
But this moment I’m dying
And so I have two things
A beating heart and a bottle of rum
