All Time Low – Kids In The Dark lyrics

[Intro]
(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark,
The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)


[Verse 1]
Here we are at the end of the road,
A road that's quietly caving in
.
Come too far to pretend that we don't,
We don't miss where we started.
But looking back I see a setting sun,
And watch my shadow fade into the floor.
I am left standing on the edge,
Wondering how we got this far, how we got this far.

[Chorus]
They left us alone, the kids in the dark
To burn out forever, or light up
the spark.
We come together, state of the art.
We'll never surrender, the kids in the dark.
So let the world sing
What a shame, what a shame,
Beautiful scars on critical veins.
Come together, state of the art.
We'll never surrender
,
The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark!

[Verse 2]
(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
Here we are at the top of the hill,
A hill that's quietly crumbling.
Been a while since you dressed for the kill,
The kill that sent me tumbling.
Looking up I see a falling star,
And watch it's fire burn into the floor.
And I am left standing on the edge,
Wondering why we fall so hard, why we fall so, hard.

[Chorus]
They left us alone, the kids in the dark
To burn out forever, or light up the spark.
We come together, state of the art
.
We'll never surrender, the kids in the dark.
So let the world sing
What a shame, what a shame,
Beautiful scars on critical veins.
Come together, state of the art.
We'll never surrender,
The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark!

[Hook]
Whoa, whoa,
(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
Whoa, whoa.

[Bridge]
(They left us alone, the kids in the dark
To burn out forever, or light up the spark)
We come together, state of the art
We'll never surrender, the kids in the dark.
So let the world sing,
What a shame, what a shame,
Beautiful scars on critical veins.
Come together, state of the art
We'll never surrender,
The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark.

[Outro]
The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark.
We'll never surrender
The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark.

    I think this song is about people (teens, preteens etc.) who are hurt in someway "coming together" I guess.

    "Here we are at the end of the road
    A road that's quietly caving in (caving in)"

    In this line, their talking about how their hurt and falling apart quietly so no one can tell that their down.

    "I am left standing on the edge
    And wondering how we got this far
    (How we got this far)"

    In this part their at pretty much their breaking point and their wondering how their still "standing".

    "They left us alone
    The kids in the dark
    To burn out forever
    Or light up the spark"

    They mean the people who hurt them left the kids in the dark (people who are hurt) alone to either to fall apart or stand tall and not them bring them down.
