1.
We’ve been lulled to sleep by petty dreams We’re in love with things that we don’t need We’ve let our beating hearts be ripped from our chests Yet we wonder why nothing feels relevant If there’s a nice thought in your head I wouldn’t believe it if I heard it And you say we’re so close We’ve been lulled to sleep by petty dreams We kill ourselves for heartless shiny things We’ve let our beating hearts be ripped from our chests Yet we wonder why we can barely breathe Everything is loud Everyone is unsettled Still we’ll dance for them And this never ends And this will never be over Until we break the cycle
2.
These quiet suicides and constant compromise With every single breath I wonder what’s left to give Let’s just call this what it is I’m a terrible liar I can’t live like this Still I tried dying a bit Because it was what you wanted These quiet suicides one heartbeat at a time With every single breath I wonder what’s left to give There’s a small death in denying who we are Let’s just call this what it is I’m a terrible liar I can’t live like this Forget this dying bit I’ll never be what you wanted No more quiet lives
3.
I can’t figure out how to describe it I can’t tell what we’ve become I just might steal your words because mine are escaping me Always just out of reach Yet it looks so close Take things halfway Take things halfway Still it looks so close I don’t want to whisper I don’t have nice things to say I’m not sorry I’ll never be what you want me to be Don’t want to read between read between the lines Why won’t you just say say what you mean I don’t want to whisper because I don’t have nice things to say I’m not sorry I’ll never be what you want me to be Always just out of reach Yet it looks so close I’m spending another night Singing along with my favorite songs Because it makes me Because it makes me Feel more alive
4.
I don’t know anymore What are we building up? I’m missing the logic Things don’t seem so black and white Still we have something to say The old rules hold no meaning Does this make us revolutionaries? Things don’t seem so black and white Call it ego or good intentions But we know enough to speak up when something is wrong We will speak up It won’t be long before we stop asking why And start yelling “burn it down!” Is this the place to point out things aren’t right Is this the right time to be wrong? Is this wrong? Someone else can worry about the future Because we’re acting right now We’re acting right now
