"I Have Better Things I Want to Do Tonight Than Die" as written by Michael Tyler Welsh, Nathan Edward Parrish, Andrew Michael Lane, Andrew Glen Rector, Christopher Daniel Walker, Jeremi Blake Mattern and Juan...
This is my blood
These are my veins
Do you see what runs through it
Don't you ever think I could lose it
This is my blood
These are my veins

I want to trace my life
In wet cement
At least my footprints
So everyone can see
this wholehearted misstep legacy
but we all know it's too fast to dry
my legs are getting tired and old
and I, I'm ready to die

This is my blood
These are my veins
Do you see what runs through them
Don't you ever think I could lose it
This is my blood
These are my veins

Anthems of hope
and misguided fears
Is how I'll remember
These past few years
With bittersweet melodies and desperate dreams
Our stories are amazing
But we fall apart at our seams
(it seems) despite all of my failures
I am not afraid of these present times
I will rise just like the phoenix,
Burn my name across city skies

Take your lives,
Make your legends,
Pass them on, pass them on
Open my eyes,
Tear my throat,
We carry on, we sing our song

We're not home yet

To all the sharks
And all the flames
We have taken down your names
It's our turn, it's our turn
