Are we still young?
Have we been everything that we'll become?
Some escape, the rest get stuck
And find it's easier to fall down than it is to keep on climbing up

Now you're the king of all this dust
Outside alone collecting rust
Where every turn and every scar
Can all make sense if you don't think too hard
Every day becomes a blur
And though you can't remember last week
I can still remember who you were

And you'd never settle for this dirt
You'd run 'til you ran outta earth
Who's gonna walk you home alone tonight?
Who's gonna pick you off the floor,
And who's gonna find a way to let you in when you're out there knocking?

And maybe this is all there is tonight
And maybe this is it forever
Or maybe this is when you start to fight, and you don't surrender now

Caught in waves you drift along
The days grow shorter and the nights go wrong
Hit the streets and choke on air
With all the people on the outside
Looking for what probably isn't there

Face down and drowning with these sharks
Drunk in defiance of this dark

Who's gonna walk you home alone tonight?
Who's gonna pick you off the floor,
And who's gonna find a way to let you in when you're out there knocking?

And maybe this is all there is tonight
And maybe this is it forever
Or maybe now is when you start to fight, and you don't surrender now

Here's where tomorrow starts
Here's where the midnight wipes it clean
On the outside in between
The moon struggles out and sighs
Hung in a cold and empty sky
Throws down some light
For you

We're miles, we're miles, we're miles out at sea
We're miles, we're miles from where we want to be
