lyrics

you won't understand
that every struggle
makes us stronger
it's just another distraction
but it's something in the way
we're avoiding destruction
only barely
you won't bend or break
when every second
takes us farther
into a world of malfunction
but we do it anyway
wind us up watch us run
this world that you will break

lay awake
every minute every hour
all the time you waste
I can't wait to
get away
from a state of expectation
to a sweet escape
you will never
know me
i was built to seize the day
show me
nothing that could make me stay
there’s nothing left

I can't believe
all the time I've spent on these
worthless thoughts wishing
that I'd never found them

we'll fight the expectations
we're more
than simple minded patients
in your ward
when running to salvation
we may fall
to see there's nothing left
for us

with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time
with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time

we killed the world
can you see?
can you see?
with no regard
who are we?
who are we?

the same
let you down
won't comply
take your crown
the same
let you down
won't comply
now's the time for us
our day

never let me our cause
this debt will hold me down
a freedom lost in this paradox
it's a trap to make me drown
burn me live yeah
you might as well

you won't understand
that every struggle
makes us stronger
it's just another distraction
but it's something in the way
we're avoiding destruction
only barely
you won't bend or break
when every second
takes us farther
into a world of malfunction
but we do it anyway
wind us up watch us run
this world that you will break

and I will lay awake
with the choices I have made
and do we stand for change?
if we made
the buildings up so tall
than we can burn down
and rebuild it all

let the people
light the fire
we're all so sick of segregation
we'll have the chance to make
a better generation

with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time
with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time

the same
let you down
won't comply
take your crown
the same
let you down
won't comply
take your crown
now's the time for us
now's the the time for us
it's a moment in our lives
we can try
to be better
to be something new
something new

let the people
light the fire
with all the building coming down
and the king has lost his crown
what a pity
the death of a liar
let the people
light the fire
let them
rebuild
