Another state won't change your face.
It's a million in one shot, so give it your best shot.
I'm playing along, come play with me.
I can't say what you want to.
Drama helps us get through.
Will you give up?
Or should I start the countdown and shimmy 'til the ball drops?

I'll be right here, I'll be right here.
This poison called fame, and the veins of the insane, says that we could be heroes.

Family heirlooms, dead man's fortune.
Forgive me for leaving.
I'll be sure to send what I don't deserve back home.
What a place, like heaven on paper.
Dad was my hero.
Dinner with the neighbors all fell apart.
With love that I felt the fear, the hell, I feel in...my heart is my home, my heart is my home.

I'll be right here, I'll be right here.
This poison called fame and the veins of the insane, says that we could be heroes.

Without emotion, all we live for is undying trust,
and we lose it in each other as we lose another year.
All we have is each other, all we have is each other.
And we lose it in each other as we lose another year.

    General CommentAh no comments! Y has no one ever heard of American diary? Oh well lol. Ironically enough, i think this songs all about leaving their hometowns and going on tour to play with the band. To me, its about the sacrifices they have to make and the people they have to leave behind for the million in one chance their music will be discovered. The we could be heros line seems to mean that they don't wnt the fame for selfish reasons, only so that more people can be inspired. Too bad clearly line NO ONE on this site has probably ever heard of them lol

    General CommentMore people than you think know about these guys. Very few take the time to say anything. But I think that you're right. This song is about the beginning. They are starting to fly. They've just taken off even tho there are things that they have to leave people behind. But there are so many more people that they will meet and things they will discover.
