Used to think you'd save my life But I don't think that anymore Used to watch your soul shine But I don't get that anymore Used to never wonder why but now I'm lying on the floor Yelling to thin air, ‘this is not what I signed up for’ While you were sleeping I thought this out meticulously. I'm so depleted I almost didn't say anything Don’t wanna need it but it’s second nature Used to think you'd save my life But I don't think that anymore Used to watch your soul shine But I don't get that anymore Used to never wonder why but now I'm lying on the floor Yelling to thin air, ‘this is not what I signed up for’ Don’t wanna need it But it’s second nature to me. I couldn’t beat it It outruns me so easily I'm so depleted I almost said nothing.

We got off to a bad start. Didn’t even notice that your heart Was laying there on the blacktop Just twitching with no sign it could stop We got off to bad start. We don’t know all the lines but we play the part Makin cases to bruise hearts Never broken but not filled to the top. Get away from the stray gunfire, babe You could stay, make a change but it’s still a shame. On the train up in flames til the last stop We got off to a bad start We got off to a bad start Take a minute and let think how this could smart. It’ll do more than leave a mark Change the picture for everyone involved But it could for some great art You know it and I know it Get away from the stray gunfire, babe You could stay, make a change but it’s still a shame. On the train up in flames til the last stop We got off to a bad start

Been awake for a week now baby Capsizing the fleet, yeah maybe Make it stop. Can't make it stop Jackhammer in the streets all day Couldn't catch but a wink for safety Shake it off. Just shake it off. We’re not trying to make the world a better place, evidently. We’re just in it spinning around all day, consequently. Ain't much of a change here lately Settled in to a blissful day dreaming mode Just keep em closed Taking it to streets and maybe We can make it thing and say we didn't know How far we'd go We’re not trying to make the world a better place, evidently. We’re just in it spinning around all day, consequently. Valentine No one else but you when I’m just killing time One foot then the other and we’ll be alright I know it We’ll just stay off the road Been a day for the books now baby Someone's calling to make the movie I would go. We both would go We’re not trying to make the world a better place, evidently. We’re just in it spinning around all day, consequently. Valentine No one else but you when I’m just killing time One foot then the other and we’ll be alright I know it We’ll just stay off the road Valentine Just one day a year that I can make you mine We’ll stare down the fear and it’ll be alright I know it We smile and we explode.

Lost, crippled, and made to suffer fools. My friends been breaking every rule. Fine time to make some new ones anyway. You’re listening, I’m talking. Stay with me. You say you’re taking me to school. There’s nothing I can learn from you. Fine lines in sand will show us what we need. One side’s the right one and one makes us bleed. Do you deny what you believe Is what you’re wearing on your sleeve? You wouldn’t lie to me, would you? So why are you lying to you? Lines look like lanes to certain doom. Do you deny what you believe Is what you’re wearing on your sleeve? You wouldn’t lie to me, would you? So why are you lying to you?
