In a mind where it's not unusual
To flee from empty paths
Life takes a backseat to love
I suppose I miss something that I never had

Big black lies take control
Pupils changed to hearts
Are quick to turn around
Gravestones weigh down
My desperate face
With time, rolling with the punches
Will get you knocked down
But don't look at me
Even I refuse to take my own advice
A day of heaven's worth a year of hell

Don't stop life, it's red
Die smiling

When I know there's going to be a thunderstorm
I run out in the rain and wait
Don't you dare tell me not to feel so fucking torn
My eyes are bleeding tears on a conscience
That I hope never comes clean
I switch sides like Napoleon's ghost

I won't stop
He died smiling

And if I never get the chance to say that I love you
Let it rest upon your head next to the halo you take
And I never get the gall to say that I hate you
Well, it was never true
A fake feeling that I made so I could let go of you
(Don't you look at me like I didn't do everything I could)

And if we all fall down
I'll know destiny's dead
And God was never around

And when I kiss you
It's like the sun and the sea
The horizon would stop to glance
With jealousy

Was it the old man who told me
"If it seems too good to be true
Then it most certainly is"
I looked at him straight in the eye when I said
"Sir, please keep your wisdom to yourself"
I've got a life to lead
