Fuck dwelling on past romances; they've moved on, there's no second chances. We know these streets like the backs of our hands. I would love to live in the now, but we can't, we never knew how. We're drawing maps of descent until we know where we stand. Let go of all that regret, quit your job, embrace the debt. (We've been tattered and we've been torn) And that's the reason we were born. (We've been deceived and strung along) And that's the reason we were born. (We're pushing on, weary though we are, we're pushing on) Diamond lanterns, burning bright, we are the match that ignites. Fuck dwelling on past mistakes, fuck giving, it's my turn to take. We know these streets like the backs of our hands. What a tangled web we weave when we try to live our dreams. We're drawing maps of descent until we know where we stand. Diamond lanterns, burning bright, we are the match that ignites.
