Start up the engine
Let's get out by heading away from here
And there's no next year for me here
Take hits and pass it
And let all the ashes fall to the floor
Once you have it all you still want more
Take my innocence away
Would they even notice either way?
My visions blurred
Can you tell that I'm a kid that was not into going to church?

The stars are burning out tonight
Do you think we'll stay this high?
And watch our favorite ones outside
Before this turns to black
Let's burn away our past
And set this cruise control for crash

Start up the fire
Let's burn this place straight down, down to the ground
If no one makes a sound then I say
Let's use my lighter
In life we're the writers to our own books
I've written mine on lies and catchy hooks
Let's dance around the mess we've made
Call someone up, let's score an eighth
To sit and relax
There's nothing we can do about the past

The stars are burning out tonight
Do you think we'll stay this high?
And watch our favorite ones outside
Before this turns to black
Let's burn away our past
And set this cruise control for crash

Someone sees smoke, call 911
Let's let this burn until it's done
Don't walk away
Let's let them see the mess that we became
Sirens flashing, here's the cops
Don't blame this on not having jobs
But dreams, and I see things
Cause I'm not afraid to think outside the box
And now I'm shaking
I hope I'm making perfect sense
So place your bets to see where I end up
And oh my god this place is so messed up
And rip me apart to see my insides
Compose myself, I'm not secure
And don't believe (don't believe) a single thing that you have heard
And throw my pride into this fire
My confidence is dead, I'm tired
Who's giving up? (I'm giving up)
I won't burn out, I'll just burn up
And I was raised on excellence
Always taught to look my best
I don't wanna be just anybody
I don't wanna be anything you forget
Villians die and heroes live forever
Tragic endings get remembered
I don't wanna be just anybody
I don't wanna be anything you forget...

And I won't be someone you forget
So don't forget
Just don't forget
And I won't be someone you forget

They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end
They won't forget you in the end

    General CommentThis song is so fitting for my life...full of ups and downs, and the growing urgency.....

    yeah, literally about hating your life, and deciding that you need to do something to end it. Especially in the end, you hear about how things were supposed to go one way, but are heading in the opposite direction, which is both terrifying and thrilling. The most important thing is that you are not forgotten, which is made evident by the last chant.

    General CommentI think this is about hating being in a place that feels like hell... someone needs to leave because they basically feel like life is worth nothing anymore and wants to get high and burn their memories...

    i can relate to it perfectly... being down and thinking the place your in is messed up... and wanting to die... it's very poignant to me...
