Wake up & wake up & wake up
You're the most beautiful girl in the world with your eyes shut
We stayed up all night acting like we had just met
We could sleep through the daylight and still catch the sunset
Run! Run! They're not gonna catch us!
They know we're in love and they'll hold it against us.
They don't care who we are. They know where we're going.
They'll keep us in a jar just as long as we're blowing.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
I think the coast is clear. But, we can not wait.
I know they'll find us here, and they'll take me away.
I'm begging you baby, I'm down on my knees.
I'm telling you now, you wont recognize me on the TV.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
And I urge you to think about what (I have no idea what is said here...) and all the doubt that you have.
Built up in your head disguised as this guy's mask but, I've been cleaning.
And I urge you to think about what (I have no idea what is said here...) and all the doubt that you have.
Built up in your head disguised as this guy's mask but, I've been cleaning.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
I'm going down, while they're kicking and screaming.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.
I'm going down, while my head's underwater.
You're the only way I'm gonna make it out alive.

    hahaha, nice little fill-in

    the missing word is "resentment"

    therefore the lyrics should now read...
    And I urge you to think about what resentment and all the doubt that you have,
    Built up in your head disguised as this guy's mask but, I've been cleaning.
    And I urge you to think about what resentment and all the doubt that you have,

    Haha, it's not "blowing", it's "glowing". You know, like how little kids capture lightning bugs in a jar because they glow.
