One look from you everything goes slow I'm getting dizzy, you're giving me vertigo Lift my spirits high high high Don't pass me by by by This is our time time time And I feel so alive Alive I'm fearless fearless fearless when I'm with you I'm fearless three two one zero doubts in my head I'm fearless fearless let's ignite the fire And burn burn like a wildfire starting to spread With you I'm fearless My pulse races, temperature starts to rise You're a blinding white light, I can't even close my eyes Lift my spirits high high high Don't pass me by by by This is our time time time And I feel so alive Alive I'm fearless fearless fearless when I'm with you I'm fearless three two one zero doubts in my head I'm fearless fearless let's ignite the fire And burn burn like a wildfire starting to spread With you I'm fearless

I've been a fool you got me where you want me even though I thought it's where I wanted to be I broke the rules and it came to haunt me even though I thought that I could get away clean I've been a fool you got me where you want me heartless and cruel you're coming back to find me even though I thought I could escape and be free
3.
Paralyzed by my own thoughts I can't escape the noise Situation overwrought Action is destroyed Superimposed on myself The ghost in the machine Connections everywhere, but what is in between It's on my hands, it's in my head It's all around, it's everywhere It's on my screen, it's all I see It eats the light, it's a machine Everywhere I look it's a duplication Reflected back at me Caught up in the endless bounce with nothing left to see Built a home inside these wires I travel underground Make my way by digital light Prometheus unbound
4.
The pending situation sees me on my own Move along now My wild calculations the future unknown Got to leave myself some distance Slow down you move too fast Come along with me we'll make this moment last forever Like stars across the sky you know we'll keep on dancing on The lack of motivation keeps me all alone Just move along Her razor sharp intentions cut right to the bone Got to run into the distance Slow down you move too fast Come along with me we'll make this moment last forever Like stars across the sky you know we'll keep on dancing on

I think I see the telling glow So we must pick up the pace Drop everything and go Freeze the sun right in its place I feel them biting at our heels But we won't go down easily Let me show you how it feels Just take my hand and follow me When the walls are closing in Don't recognize the world we're in When the line is wearing thin And we don't know what we're living in Take my hand come along with me We'll outrun the sun Set ourselves free We can believe that the night will never end We can tell ourselves that we'll never stop We'll sleep when we are dead I can't do this all alone So take my hand won't you please Hold tight and don't let go No trembling hands or shaky knees When the walls are closing in Don't recognize the world we're in When the line is wearing thin And we don't know what we're living in Take my hand come along with me We'll outrun the sun Set ourselves free We can believe that the night will never end We can tell ourselves that we'll never stop We'll sleep when we are dead

Static seeps slowly from the VHS Shite noise overwhelming every synapse Swallowed by a pixelated sun In the blinding white light We fade away Static swells saturate the TV screen White light overwhelming every dream Drown under an artificial sun In the blinding white light We fade away

I used to shut down with judgment and affliction Before you came round my world was black and white I spent my days going through emotion Kept my eyes shut closed so tight You pulled me up like an arc Rocked the pieces in my heart I’m amazed that you came lifting me insane You gave me spark to my dark Put the bite back in my bark Took the weight off my back Off my off my off my oh You're my anti-gravity hold me so I don't float away You're my sugar and my flame everything with you is so good, so together (much better) I used to hide out running from the season Fighting my mind out – I was locked inside I tried to break it weighted by eruption Forgot about love’s first site You pulled me up like an arc Rocked the pieces in my heart I’m amazed that you came lifting me insane You gave me spark to my dark Put the bite back in my bark Took the weight off my back Off my off my off my oh You're my anti-gravity hold me so I don't float away You're my sugar and my flame everything with you is so good, so together (much better)

You gave me a sun tan You gave me a jar of dirt You gave me a heartache That never hurts You gave me a coy smile You gave me a tiny shell You said come over And stay a while I went to the west coast I made no plans Your smile so bright I got a sun tan The sky turned angry And the clouds rolled in Being truthful Was my only sin Now I'm twisted in the head About things i should have said To you You gave me a your full gaze You gave me a second chance You gave me unspoken List of cans and cants I left my heart there I left my castle of sand I left with one thing A new sun tan Now I'm twisted in the head About things i should have said To you Shine your light Right on me

Missed the last bus Guess I'll be walking home Empty streets to myself All sepia tone Still wearing my tie When the sun starts to rise If I'm in pain tomorrow at least I'll know I'm alive Heard the last notes As they faded away I'm still standing here But everyone's left the stage When the walls fall when the roof splits open wide I'll be watching it all knowing I'm still alive When our nerves no longer twitch When our lungs heave their final breath When our mouths no longer sing Then we'll know we've given everything Missed the last train Guess I'll be walking home In the silent streets It's good to be alone A little swerve But I'm staying upright Shadows all around I walk into the light I guess I'll be walking home I guess I'll be walking home When our nerves no longer twitch When our lungs heave their final breath When our mouths no longer sing Then we'll know we've given everything When our nerves no longer twitch When our lungs heave their final breath When our mouths no longer sing Then we'll know we've given everything

And we tripped through the woods to hear the traffic Climbed up the trees skipping out on all our classes We won't worry about the continental drift today Crank up the furnace watch the rain collect on an empty street Count our coins again for the party tonight And we skipped through the snow there was no traffic Face pale orange in the sodium vapor We won't worry about the ozone going away Crank up the speakers wake up the neighbors Drown in our drinks while we push up the faders It's only midnight on Wednesday night Let the credits roll this is our movie Turn on the bright lights let everyone see Let the credits roll over all this beauty Let the credits roll, let the credits roll And we ran to the woods escaped the traffic Climbed up the trees and let the hours pass us We won't worry about the oceans rising today And we rode through the rain into the traffic Streets pale orange in the sodium vapor We won't worry about the continental drift today Let the credits roll this is our movie Turn on the bright lights let everyone see Let the credits roll over all this beauty Let the credits roll, let the credits roll
