Burning down Neverland, scatter the ashes!
White lines black tar that matches.
Is this another death by misadventure?
Tell me what you got, what you really got. [Hey, hey! ]
We'll rest in our graves,
Lexington cross your veins,
Sleepers can't just wake the dead,
When needles and lovers collapse on guilty beds...

Fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
[They lied when they said that the good die young]
They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.

Burning down bridges now, scatter the ashes!
Godspeed to all you're after,
Is this a life left just to remember?
Tell em who you were, who you really were.
Kill yourself slowly over time,
Fashion statement suicide. [suicide]
She's still asleep in the Chelsea hotel,
Bad turns to worse and the worse turns into Hell.

Fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
[God save the eyes that dim tonight]
They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.


They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.

They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.

    To me i think its when people give in to what they think is in at the moment. Do not be afraid to do what you feel is right. Don't give in to something you know is not right.

    I think this song talks about being able to stand up for what you believe in and just blending in... Like the guy says: "is this a life just to remember, tell them who you are who you really"
