Kids are roaming through the city,
Burning open fires in the streets.
They're running to the rhythm of the night,
With bated breath at our restless deeds.
We've crossed the line a thousand times;
We'll cross it a thousand more.
'Cause they don't know
What lies below.

Stand on your own
While you struggle to survive.
Stand on your own.
You know that time is not on your side.

This is a fire.
This is a revelation.
Don't let it burn out.
Don't let it fade away.
Let's run all the red lights
And break our promises.
We'll live like lovers
Who have never known heartache.

They look to the heavens above for advice on their lives,
Searching for God at the bottoms of bottles and in strangers' eyes.
With a little less medication,
And a little more dedication,
I know we'll make this work.
