"Temple of Doom" as written by Michael Tyler Welsh, Nathan Edward Parrish, Andrew Michael Lane, Andrew Glen Rector, Christopher Daniel Walker, Jeremi Blake Mattern and Juan Manuel Lopez....
Please, please, please
don't tell me
Dreams they don't come true
because I've been casting fortunes
into wishing wells
and my return is long overdue
Possibilities are possibly
the only thing
The only thing to keep this empty heart beating
The only thing to keep this broken corpse breathing

Do you believe in luck?
In my experience there's no such thing

But it's a long walk home
and this road is only a shadow
We are failures we are kings
We are hollowed out memories
We are bridges over dirty water
We're burning on and on and on…

Please, please, please
just tell me
This is just a dream
because I will never wake
I'll sew my eyes shut
Stitch my lips
just in case
Use my tendons for thread
Hold my breath till I am dead
I will sleep till this heart stops beating
I will sleep till this corpse stops breathing

You know, I'm starting to believe
You've got me down on my hands and knees

Do you believe in luck?
You got me down on my hands and knees

I've opened my eyes and I have found
Hope in lungs
that will never let me down
