I've been carving down the days on my bedroom door
Teeth are all but gum,
Takin' a beating from grinding when I'm sleeping.
I busted out the boards on my window sill,
Nails shut to keep me here, I'm dying.
Nothing can stop me from trying
To crawl my way out this grave,
Before I decay I will make a clean break..

And burn it down, I'll burn this town behind me
And run until I cant breathe.
Im breaking out,
I'll bury all my mistakes
And rebuild until my back breaks.

Consider them convinced I'm a luncatic.
Eyes are wide and crazed,
I'm feeling hell bent on wreaking havoc.
I sent a stack of bricks through the neighbors house,
Watch them as they spill into their yards,
They dont know how lucky they are.
They swat the vultures aside
And swear they're alive, but just look in their eyes

Burn it down, I'll burn this town behind me
And run until I cant breathe.
Im breaking out,
I'll bury all my mistakes
And rebuild until my back breaks down.


On my gravestone for all to see, it reads,
"I took this city out at the knees" at least.
On your gravestone, covered in leaves, they'll read
nothing more than "Rest in, Rest in peace".

(Nothing more than
Nothing more than
Nothing more than
Nothing more than)

And burn it down, I'll burn this town behind me,
Run until I cant breathe.
Baby, I am breaking out,
I'll bury all my mistakes
And rebuild until my back breaks down (down).

Rebuild until my back breaks..
Rebuild until my back breaks..
Until my back breaks.

    General Commenti'm too lazy to send the corrections to the "team of moderators."
    someone else can?
    (and btw, this is from the booklet. some of the words in the song aren't in the booklet, but i feel like i'll get bitched at if i put them in, or leave them out. lose/lose situation, i guess? score).

    General CommentREBEL NIGGAS! yea im just seeing this as being a personification of teenage rebellion.
    Which makes sense, because every one of their songs are meant to be relatable to teens.
