i'm not looking for revenge. i'm not looking for a reason. i just know this is the end. i just know, i'm so low. you won't ever change a thing. and i'm sick of all your screaming. those thoughtless things you said to me. apologies without a meaning. i'm not looking for revenge. i'm not looking for a reason. i just know this is the end. i just know, there's no hope. i had to pack it up and leave. i won't miss these memories. it's not too late you said to me, “please come home.” no, i don't think so. i'm not looking for revenge (falling out, falling out). i'm not looking for a reason (falling out, falling out). i just know this is the end (falling out, falling out). i just know, i'm not home (falling out, falling out). (you were looking for a way out anyway) i'm not looking for revenge. (telling me that it's over every other day) i'm not looking for a reason. (you were looking for a way out anyway) i just know this is the end i just know, i just know. fading, fading out. fading, fading out. you're finally fading, fading out. fading, fading out

lost in tide. for the thousandth time. we're building us. in the moving dust. i know it's cold on the outside. in every inch of the inside. and now when only rain is over you, it's all above the view. you know i'll always see you. here it goes. for the thousandth time. we're building us. i know it's cold on the outside. in every inch of the inside. and now when only rain is over you, it's all above the view. you know i'll always see you. i know it's cold on the outside. in every inch of the inside

we lost it all. we let it go. we disassociate from everything we know. we're pessimists. we're cynical. first to fail but last to know. we're all so fucked up but we're scared to let it show. it comes in fits. it starts and stops. a full accounting that wrote us off. burning down from the inside out. we try to medicate ourselves. a simple truth we can't admit. too apathetic to give a shit. gave it up. we all just quit. we're all so fed up with a world so full of shit. we're ill prepared and compromised. too numb to care so we don't try. don't understand it but we know the reasons why. we've been so bitter. pulled so tense and left so anxious. we're fucking pissed. burning down from the inside out. we try to medicate ourselves. a simple truth we can't admit. too apathetic to give a shit. drink it up. breathe it in. and swallow handfuls of all these pills. blacking out. watch it burn. the hardest lessons we never learned. it comes in fits. it starts and stops. a full accounting that wrote us off. we've been so bitter. pulled so tense and left so anxious. we're fucking pissed. a simple truth we won't admit. we never really gave a shit. drink it down. breathe it in. and swallow handfuls of all these pills. blacking out. watch it burn. the hardest lessons we never learned

surrender to the sound we're beautiful. our roots are strong and they wanna see us fall. we do what's right, we're not alone. their force is strong but together we stand tall. in the streets the city sings. a sound so loud you just cant shut it out. you and me and everyone. an undying bond. imagine the freedom it's love. the aimless. the voiceless. wake up to the sound. our roots are strong and they wanna see us fall. we do what's right. we're not alone. our roots are strong and together we stand tall. the hopeless. the ruined. there is no one to blame but yourself. you are responsible. now your roots have been unearthed. you have been detached. and life is rolling by on a movie screen. the moment you seek the release, the awakening from this dream. it can't be done on your own. you are paralyzed. you are dying but not living. but your veins they're connected. and blood runs through whether you try or don't. the paper king in his castle. the friend on a rooftop. are you the seed? could you brake through the pavement? wake up the aimless. wake up the voiceless. we're beautiful and in the streets. a sound so loud you just can't shut it out. imagine the freedom. its love

I’m so excited. I feel incredible. I’m always ready. Cause I’m infallible. You wanna catch me. You better watch me burn. My heart will tremble. I'm so insatiable. I’m always thirsty. I’m so predictable. Can you tame me for just one night? I'm in love and I don’t want to run. Cause I can see that you’re one of them. I’m in love and I cannot stop. Cause I can feel that you’re onto us. I’m so excited. I feel incredible. I’m always ready. Cause I’m infallible. You wanna catch me. You better watch me burn. My heart's in trouble. I'm so insatiable. I’m always thirsty. I’m so predictable. But can you tame me for just one night? Your hands around me and I’m feeling warm. I feeling older but I’m getting young. I can’t scratch every itch around. I wanna break everybody’s sound. I’m so excited. I feel incredible. I’m always ready. Cause I’m infallible. You wanna catch me. You better watch me burn. My heart's in trouble. I'm so insatiable. I’m always thirsty. I’m so predictable. But can you tame me for just one night? I am the dead and young. Can’t’ stop the dead and young. Can’t tame the dead and young. I am the dead and young
