We'll keep our eyes so close to the sun
That we cannot see all the damage we've done
To not just ourselves
There is no way we'll make it
I know we're going under as well

And we'll keep our ears so close to the beat
That we cannot hear you
And we won't move our feet
To the sound of it all going down in flames
Let's put this fire out
Let's put this fire out

Well, well
We're a heartbeat away from hell
I know, and it's easy enough to tell
You know we are a heartbeat away
From having no heartbeat at all

So let's keep the taste locked up in our teeth
We won't let it seep out
No, we won't let it leak
You can't let it show
So maybe you just play your role
In making sure that nobody knows

Well, I bet we get caught up in every way
She said, "I read it on your face all the same."
Let's get so fixed on our problems and stay
Let's put this fire out
Let's put it out

Well, well
We're a heartbeat away from hell
I know, and it's easy enough to tell
You know we are a heartbeat away
From having no heartbeat at all (x2)

Just say you need it just as badly as me
All we ever wanted was to be happy
And just say you need it
Just so we see we were wrong

So it seems that all the casual conversations
And all of the intimate situations
Were just figments of our imaginations
When, in all reality, all we were doing
Was just lying to pass the time
And dying to pass the hat from her hand to mine

Well, well
We're a heartbeat away from hell
I know, and it's easy enough to tell
You know we are a heartbeat away
From having no heartbeat at all (x2)

    General CommentTo me it's about guy and girl that don't really care about anything but each other; they don't even care if they go to hell as long as they're with one another. It's a really sweet song and kick ass at the same time.
