times like guns, i had nowhere to run
yeah, this world can get so lonely
yeah, the paper and pen were my two best friends
cause the sad songs understood me
the irony that all my dreams were keeping me from sleeping
cause there's something so fun, being young and being dumb
cause you're not afraid of feeling

yeah, all of my demons are kicking and screaming
but i'll never leave them behind
yeah, baby, i'm crazy but don't try to save me
cause i've never felt so alive

yeah when they knock you down, down, down
kid, you gotta stand up, stand up
and when they got ya down, down, down
gotta make your own luck, own luck
so tell me i'm outta my mind
gimme a sign
take it one step at a time
i know it's gonna be fine
open your eyes
shut up and give it a try
when they got you down, down, down
kid, you gotta stand up, stand up

everybody go, ooooh
everybody go, ooooh

eyes like knives, i had nowhere to hide
yeah, this world can cut you open
but all my scars, they prove that i follow it through
so i always keep 'em showing

cause sanity is suicide, and crazy on the ledges
but i'd rather have fun being young and being dumb
than be saved a spot in heaven

yeah, all of my demons are kicking and screaming
but i'll never leave them behind
yeah, baby, i'm crazy but don't try to save me
cause i've never felt so alive

yeah when they knock you down, down, down
kid, you gotta stand up, stand up
and when they got ya down, down, down
gotta make your own luck, own luck
so tell me i'm outta my mind
gimme a sign
take it one step at a time
i know it's gonna be fine
open your eyes
shut up and give it a try
when they got you down, down, down
kid, you gotta stand up, stand up

everybody go, ooooh
everybody go, ooooh

all of my demons are kicking and screaming
but i'll never leave them behind
yeah maybe i'm crazy but don't try to save me
cause i've never felt so alive

yeah when they knock you down, down, down
kid, you gotta stand up, stand up
and when they got ya down, down, down
gotta make your own luck, own luck
so tell me i'm outta my mind
gimme a sign
take it one step at a time
i know it's gonna be fine
open your eyes
shut up and give it a try
when they got you down, down, down
kid, you gotta stand up, stand up

everybody go, ooooh
