Am I going too fast
I never wanted to waste the gas
You wanted to go there
I wanted it too
And now we're all in a cast
They say in Heaven the first shall be last
But that was a comeback
For people who dream that we're angels
We're so vain

I know it's never the same
We'll never be that golden
Everything was arranged
But now the party is over
I know it's never the same

Every crime needs a victim
(Maybe it's you maybe it's me)
Now it's time that we picked one
(I hope that it's you I hope that it's me)

I wanna go too fast
I never wanted to wait to relax
I just couldn't do that
And now the moment is past
Like a stone that's been thrown through the glass
And all that's left is a trace of the place we used to call home base
I see it in your face what a waste
We'll never be the same
We'll never be that golden
Everything was arranged
But now the party is over
We'll never be the same

We are a tale of two cities
Lost, drowned in a world of self pity
Can't you see we're not winning
Lost, drowned in a world that keeps spinning

In a world that keeps spinning around

    General CommentThe speaker believes he/she has finally seen past the lie that is heaven and the promise of eternal life after death. Death is simply death and don't hold back in regards to living life in fear of jeopardizing your chance for eternal happiness after death. Coming into this belief, he/she thinks that if by chance they are wrong in their belief that there is no longer any hope for themselves anymore to be happy at last. The speaker then dwells into the thought that all those who claim to believe in live after death and 'god' can not help but question their beliefs as he/she has and everyone now shares the same fate, whatever it may be. Everyone aspiring to be an 'angel' is living a lie.
