look out i'm exploding in my head
gotta break out the windows are all busted
open the door gotta face what's out there
are you ready we need you to be there
wake up do you think it will be the same
look ahead in a year what have we gained
i'm still lost, you still don't know my name
but i guess that's the nature of the game

i wanna yell (i wanna yell but there's no breath in my lungs)
i would write (i would write but there's no ink in my pen)
no going back (no going back now the damage is done)
this battle's over (this battle's over but the party has just begun)

if you play with fire you might get burned
work real hard if you wanna get ahead
and if you fall asleep with a gun in your mouth
you might just wake up with a bullet inside your head

i've got thoughts in my brain
but my tongue's all out of words
so here i'm gonna break down
at the end of your sword

oh no here we go again what's wrong with me
i speak again and again i just misspeak
what's this for, are you trying to help me
i wish you'd back off with all the questioning
messed up why is all of this all so hard
i wish in real life you could really just push restart
we're still lost, still not eye to eye
better count our losses and say goodbye
