One More Time with Feeling

Lyrics (fan transcription):
your stitches are all out
but your scars are healing wrong
and the helium balloon
inside your room has come undone
and it's pushing up at the ceiling
and the flickering lights it cannot get beyond

oh, everyone takes turns
now it's yours to play the part
and they're sitting all around you
holding copies of your chart
and misery inside their eyes is
synchronized and reflecting into yours

hold on, one more time with feeling
try it again, breathing's just a rhythm
say it in your mind
until you know that the words are right
this is why we fight

you thought by now you'd be
so much better than you are
you thought by now they'd see
that you had come so far
and the pride inside their eyes would
synchronize into a love you've never known
so much more than you've been shown

hold on, one more time with feeling
try it again, breathing's just a rhythm
say it in your mind
until you know that the words are right
this is why we fight

this is why we fight
