What's sure to get you by
Is to avoid the common lie
That we're under starters
Starters orders

She lost her nerve the last day
Distractions in the cross-hairs
Still under starters
Misunderstanding orders

We're made like the past
We were built to last
We're made like the past
We were built to last

Night time is the wrong time
To be with the thoughts you fear
They drag their nails
And rattle their chains

See the people move so slow
Moving statues of heavy stone
Illusions for the non-believer
Or just a shadow thrown

We're made like the past
We were built to last
We're made like the past
We were built to last

Words don't move her
She's moving on, she's moving on
And he can't drown out
The distant drone

Every morning he wakes and starts again
Is this all that you've done?

Speeding lights and runways
Spit her out into a new day
And the bullet you dodged
Will soon be lodged in another heart

We're made like the past
We were built to last
(They don't make us like they used to)
(We can't stand the test of time)

We're made like the past
We were built to last
(They don't make us like they used to)
(We can't stand the test of time)

They don't make us like they used to
We can't stand the test of time
They don't make us like they used to
We can't stand the test of time

They don't make us like they used to
We can't stand the test of time
