lets do it for pretend this is our night
well give those demons hell so they know what its like
breathe and let it in and smile bright
while the world stays upside down we'll stand upright

forget about the pain let's get numb
i wanna hear you say were going out my son
the terror in your veins well its done
what you were is half of what youll become

we'll live like kings and have god fall at our feet
he'll stare me in the eye and ill arrange the guillotine

dad lets get in the car
throw away the map
just have your best shoes on

dad we'll drive towards mexico
untill there is no gas
we'll keep going on and on

just pop a couple pills so your nerves
fall asleep and make your muscles work
you stare out the windowsill. at the birds.
wishing you could fly or walk around the earth.

give us something real to believe
so i dont have to sing so much about these dreams
who let go of the wheel? was it me?
were we foolish were we all that naive?

and all we are are waves waiting to crash on the shore
but for now lets enjoy the ride leave all your bother on the ocean floor

until the trumpets play ill hold on tight cross my heart
id cut out all my veins id name them all my favorite scars

dad lets get in the car
and throw away that map
just have your best shoes on

dad we'll drive across the sea
yea we'll make this moment last
windows down, blasting all our favorite songs

i saw you in the kitchen
i came back from a
party you were missing
it wasnt great anyway

you just ate a piece of fruit
cuz the bottle label says to
eat with some milk or food
take them at least twice a day

dad it was 3am
its way past dinner
you should be back in your bed

dad you looked to the right
when you whispered
everything will be just fine

now thats biggest lie
