The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy blending in the crowd. The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy following the crowd.

And when you come back down now girl.(2x)

When you were a young girl did you wanna be something more baby. But now you feel your so lost and your burning up inside. Yeah

We’re clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down.(2x)

I cant pretend I’m happy when…….. and now I know its pointless. I’m constantly on a down and I’m tired of waiting. Climb to the top we climb to the top and now you're falling again.

The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy blending in the crowd. The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy following the crowd.

And when you come back down now girl.(2x)

When I was a young boy I wanted to be something more baby but I cant dance no and I sure as fuck cant sing. We’re clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down.(2x)

Why do we play into this motive. What are you waiting for tonight. You wonder, you wait and you cant get through this without a line. Now. Climb to the top we climb to the top and now you're falling again.

Lets break it down.

Every thing’s so jaded baby fathers trying hard to keep up with the Jones' and his wife’s so dirty baby sexing up every Tom, Dick and Harry in town. Lets go!

I can't pretend I’m happy when…….. and now I know its pointless. I’m constantly on a down and I’m tired of waiting. Climb to the top we climb to the top and now you're falling again.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy's boyfriend
    how whenever they go out
    all she care about is how she looks
    and what everyone think of her

    that shes just following the crowd
    and trying blend in with everyone
    rather than being herself

    and the "climb to the top" part
    i think hes talking about their relattionship
    how they tryto be together and work things out
    but shes always falling becuase
    shes too busy worry about everything esle besides love

    hahaha sounds like high school all over again


    and the part "i can't pretend i'm happy when and now I know its pointless. I’m constantly on a down and I’m tired of waiting"

    i think that her boyfriend is going to break up with her
    becuase hes can't take her anymore
    she doesn't care about them
    she only cared about how she looks
    and what everyone esle thinks of her

    but hahaha this is just my opinon
    i'm not sure if thats what everyone esle thinks lol

    but yeah i LOVE this song
    its awesome!
    very catchy beats

    General Commenti think the guy in the song is tired of his chick being such a party girl and getting around while living such a secular life. and he's done putting up with her and trying to make things work
