baby we made it and don’t have to keep it a secret like agents
we were so underrated
our faces brighter we’re young fighters
we made statements, the truth inside us young liars
up nights awake then retired
in the early morn when sun made the moon expire
we ice skated on lakes of fire and spit glaciers
so misunderstood they were mistaken
sayin’ we were losers and the wrong crowd
they can’t help it, but can’t stand to look at us now
and this is all I have thinkin’ what a drag
when I was eighteen in the elevator shaft
and still it may seem like I’m livin’ in the past
but the way it is to me that time went by in a flash
now on a do or die mission like roadkill
in a collapse, hold still, he brought it back

we shined so bright
and not a soul could stop us from doing what we liked
we did whatever we wanted every night
and they said we’d never make it but we just laughed in their faces
but we just

when the clouds cried we were the tears from the sky
sorry we can’t stay the sun will take us away to dry
little boys frustrated and annoyed
didn’t need the protection of responsibility to fill a void
we found joy in destroying the definition they gave us
our skepticism of the red tape must have saved us
so in my melancholy and my grimmest days
I think of the way were, its a familiar face
until it fades and stays dark like the graveyard shift
I write this song to keep my fave stars lit
but its evident never again will it be the same
I’m on my hands and knees tryin’ to save it from slippin’ down the drain
now on a suicide mission like roadkill
in a collapse, hold still, he brought it back

whether we were on the fringes of destruction
or innocent victims of corruption
we had it all even when we had nothin’
we were on the outside looking in
we were animated we were lucid
totally fascinated with our music
and we laughed in the faces of the rules when
they tried to cover us up with their lids, because

    General Commentit is more like:

    We shine so bright
    And not a soul can stop us, not a soul can stop us from doing
    What we like, we did
    Whatever we wanted, we did whatever we wanted
    Every night they said
    We’d never make it, God we were so underrated
    But we just laughed in their faces and we just laughed in their faces
    Cause we just
