Don’t ever take a single second to breathe
They’re gonna send me on a murdering spree
I cannot wait to dance upon your grave
They don’t even have a soul left to be saved
But you believe when you’re young

We swam among the northern lights
And hid beyond the edge of night
Waiting for the dawn to come
And sang a song
To save us all

I am alive, I’m just playing dead
I’m gonna say what should have never been said
The giants of the world are crashing down
The end is near, I hear the trumpets sound
But you believe when you’re young

We swam among the northern lights
And hid beyond the edge of night
And waited for the dawn to come
And sang a song
To save us all

    As for me it isa tottaly clear drug addiction message in every sentence. :) northern lights is some sort of weed. If you take it in that meaning then the whole song gets this meaning too:) i dont know if that is right or wrong but it s so cool how it matches perfectly only if you take "northern lights" for weed:p

    seriously it is "you will eat your young" instead of "But you believe when you are young"- Jared said that himself on the last VyRT. It's funny that nobody has the right lyrics for this song.

    Actualy 'But you believe when you’re young' is the legit version...
    I guess you'll have to face it. :)
    And sounds a bit better along with the song. Why would eat your young facing death? lol
    At least is what i take from the song...
