I look around, 'round 'round, look around and look it over.
I take it up, up, take it up and take it over.
Traded in who I've been for shiny celebrity skin.
I like to push it, and push it until my luck is over.
It never stops, stops, never stops,
Well, you better.
I think it over prima donna,
You don't wanna sever.
All the works to impress,
Charming girls out of their dresses,
And smiling pretty,
Well pretty will swallow you forever.

Step one, step two, step three repeat.
And I pray at the church of asses in the seats,
I disappear behind the beat.

When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear,
I'd never guess how we ever could have got here.
You can say what you say when the lights go down,
So shake shake shake, and shut your mouth.

I wonder why, why, I wonder why, why I outta,
Let you wreck, resurrect whatever you wanna.
I can't depend in the end you know I thought you were my friend.
Just stop, just stop, just stop,
I think I got it.
Sorry, you,
Sorry me,
Sorry every in between,
Sorry everybody here will never be somebody clean.
There's a piece of me they're throwing back at us,
And they will buy you and sell you for celebrity status.

Step one, step two, step three repeat.
And I pray at the church of asses in the seats,
I disappear behind the beat, yeah.

When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear,
I'd never guess how we ever could have got here.
You can say what you say when the lights go down,
So shake shake shake, and shut your mouth.

When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear,
I'd never guess how we ever could have got here.
You can say what you say when the lights go down,
So shake shake shake, and shut your mouth.

Look around, 'round,
Look around, 'round,
Look around.
Look around, 'round,
Look around, 'round,
Look around.
Look around, 'round,
Look around, 'round,
Look around.
Look around, 'round,
Look around, 'round,
Look around.
Look around, 'round,
Look around, 'round,
Look around.
Look around, 'round,
Look around, 'round,
Look around.

I'm trying,
I'm trying,
I'm trying.
I'm trying,
I'm trying,
I'm trying.
I'm trying,
I'm trying,
I'm trying.
I'm trying,
I'm trying,
I'm trying.

When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear,
I'd never guess how we ever could have got here.
You can say what you say when the lights go down,
So shake shake shake, and shut your mouth.

When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear,
I'd never guess how we ever could have got here.
You can say what you say when the lights go down,
So shake shake shake, and shut your mouth.

I'm trying,
I'm trying,
I'm trying...

    General CommentI think it's about the music biz.

    And I predict a future single. Everyone sings along to this song at shows.

    General CommentI totally agree with Fallen Leaves.
    I think that: "When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear, I'd never guess how we ever could have got here." is about how they're still the same guys and they aren't too affected by their success.
    I think that:"You can say what you say when the lights go down, So shake shake shake, and shut your mouth." means that they don't really pay attension to the people that bring them down and that people should just enjoy the music.

    General CommentSorry, you,
    Sorry me,
    Sorry every in between,
    Sorry everybody here will never be somebody clean.
    There's a piece of me they're throwing back at us,
    And they will buy you and sell you for celebrity status.

    I think this verse is talking about Josh having a heroine addiction. People found out about it and they throw it back at him to make them more famous.

    Love this song and so happy its being released as a single. The music video should be good!

    General CommentTo elaborate: I also think this song has to do with selling yourself for the music business. That adds a little to my previous comment, haha.

    This song will further propel Trench into superstardom.

    General Commentlike everyone said, this is about how they're becoming more popular and their hard work is paying off. but can someone explain to me these lines :

    "And I pray at the church of asses in the seats,
    I disappear behind the beat."

    i dont understand this part D:
