We were young, out of touch
Back when it was different growing up
We're the ones that would run
When it's said and done, yeah, it was us

We were free, you and me
It's all we ever needed to believe
Piece by piece, breaking me
They told us how we should be and we agreed

Hey, brother, how you living
Night after night in your own prison?
There's nothing truer that's ever been said
When you live on hope alone don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath

You and I, we'll survive
But ask me if I knew I'd pay the price
Hanging on by a thread
The voices in my head start making sense

On the edge once again
Living in the moment til the end
Every night of our lives
I wonder if they've been right the whole damn time

Hey, brother, how you living
Night after night in your own prison?
There's nothing truer that's ever been said
When you live on hope alone don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath

Can you say you found the voice that's deep inside? (Deep inside)
Dragged along as they came and made up our minds (Made up our minds)
Can you say that they have been right all this time? (Every time)
Feels like forever since we built our cages (We built our cages) of empty phrases

Hey, brother, how you living
Night after night in your own prison?
There's nothing truer that's ever been said
Take a look at yourself try to save what's left

Hey, brother, how you living
When you live on hope alone don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath, don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath

Don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath
Don't go holding your breath
