We build empires of our downfalls
And monuments of our flaws
And we tell ourselves it’s just a means to an end
But where’s the end to this means
And when can we trade in our day jobs and move on to our dreams

And I’d stay up all night
And I'd stay up all night
And I'd stay up all night
Just to find something worth staying up all night for
Just to find something worth staying up all night for

We build mountains of our madness
And factions of our passions
And even entropy will see them fall apart sometimes
‘Cause it takes more to make something real
Than obscurity in the things you steal
And I’ll spend my whole life looking for those lines
So now that life’s become a series
of ink blots on receipt backs
And the censors in me delete months at a time
And the consequence of honesty
Resulting in obscurity
Looks better than an end result
Built of false intent and lies

And I’d stay up all night
And I'd stay up all night
And I'd stay up all night
Just to find something worth staying up all night for
Just to find something worth staying up all night for
