forget what katie said
she don't speak for the band
maybe someday she'll be warmer
rather one day i'll be smarter
and give in

forget what robert meant
and all his failed attempts
to realize what we'll have
they say just stick with it
and i hear
"boy just play cool"

(chorus)
it's the kind of moment
where you don't know when it ends
if you're alive or dead
are we alive or dead

can't be sentimental
sentimental's where it ends
we play for life or death
we're here for life or death


you ask "well aren't we friends"?
like it's your best defense
beggars masquerade as choosers
written off as bitter losers
then you win

so what of honesty
and how it's killing me?
the tone and words you speak
just make me look crazy
so i say
"boy just play cool"

(chorus)

(bridge)
somewhere down at the bottom
someone's always rescued me
but lately nobody's coming
give me some more time to think
kill myself to say
"swear they must remember me"
you ask well aren't we friends
like you're scared i might leave

now's the kind of moment
when you don't know when it ends
if you're alive or dead
alive or dead
can't be sentimental
sentimental's where it ends
we play for life or death
life or death

(chorus)
