How'd we get so fucked?
Are the good times just long gone?
Did you listen to sad songs before you got sad?
Will you be there when the happy ones give up?

Cause they say "it's outdated" and "that's overated", "already been done"
Looking for the fine print when I read.

Falling on my knees, cause how can I repeat?
You tell me you do no wrong, but how do you still go on
when you don't even get along?

Whatcha gonna do when they laugh at you and tell you that you're worthless?
How're you gonna like when you've gotta fight to prove that you deserve this?
Giving up is a gateway drug and I haven't seen it all,
Just some foreign countries and a mattress on my best friend's interstate living room floor

How'd we get so far with the ambition failing?
I'll be there when it caves in. We'll become who we are.
Looking for the good things you can see.

Falling on my knees, cause how can I repeat?
You tell me you do no wrong, but how do you still go on
when you don't even get along?

Whatcha gonna do when they laugh at you and tell you that you're worthless?
How're you gonna like when you've gotta fight to prove that you deserve this?
Giving up is a gateway drug and I haven't seen it all,
Just some foreign countries and a mattress on my best friend's interstate living room floor

We cross imaginary lines drawn in the sand,
that indicate and decimate these promised lands.
Up and down the coast for days, 5000 KMs.
But when you tell me it's jealousy, I still turn away
Cause how do you still go on,
how do you still go on

when we don't even get along?

Whatcha gonna do when they laugh at you and tell you that you're worthless?
How're you gonna like when you've gotta fight to prove that you deserve this?
Giving up is a gateway drug and I haven't seen it all,
Just some foreign countries and a mattress on my best friend's interstate living room floor
