Burn those bridges to the ground
Without a sound
We just blew up

On to bigger destitute
This is our art
This is their truth

Someone told you life is short
But yours is long
Longing for validation
In short you'll never need it's song
But without harmony
You give them underwhelming hope, change, lifeswork
Ending in a flat note gesture
Passionate to some
Isn't that enough

Up the ladder to the lounge
In an old suit
You make them proud to crush you
Seems they like watching you burn
Just like the bridge you once traversed
So burn those bridges to the ground
Without a care
You know you're nothing more than here, there, aimless
Addicted to the sound of insufficient
Only recognized for your compromise

    General Commentafter, flat low gesture passionate to some is not enough, up the ladder to the lounge is what he says i think... for the lyrics after that, i have no clue lol,

    General CommentThese lyrics are pretty wrong... Here's some help:

    Burn those bridges to the ground without a sound you just blew up. On to big or destitute? this is your heart, this is their proof.
    someone told you life is short but yours is long longing for validation short you never needed song and without harmony you gave them underwhelming hope faith lives work ending in a flat low gesture. passionate to some isn't that enough?

    up the ladder to the lounge in an old suit, you'd make them proud to crush you. seems they like watching you burn. just like the bridge you watch them burst. so burn those bridges to the ground without a care. you know you're nothing more than here, there, aimless. addicted to the sound of insufficient. only recognize for your compromise.

    I wont even get into the song's meaning because what it means to me is pretty personal like most of Joey's lyrics... I'll just say it's your typical Lagwagon song dealing with fucked up relationships, confusion, and honesty.
