I will witness it collapse
So it does, just thanks to us
Our many words, not done just heard
We leave this world
I feel so ashamed that we're to blame
Obvious lies as we all die; once bitten, twice shy
What will make you understand?
Holding death in your hand?
You've got a sign in your fucking forehead; slow down or be dead!
But hey, leave it, for our kids, let's sleep instead
And when you've come to realize it's way too late
God dammit you HAVE realized and it's way too late
Once bitten, twice shy?
Then how come we all die?
Await the better days, don't pull your weight
I'll laugh when you admit defeat
I feel the taste, we're laid to waste
Will stand the heat?
No one's perfect, no one's even bloody close
My brain's my bodies defect, programmed to lose
And when you've come to realize it's way too late
God dammit you HAVE realized and it's way too late
Await the better days, don't pull your weight
I'll laugh when you admit defeat
I feel the taste, we're laid to waste
Will you stand the heat?
Once bitten, twice shy?
Then how come we all die?
What will make you understand?
Holding death in your hand?
Await the better days, don't pull your weight
I'll laugh when you admit defeat
I feel the taste, we're laid to waste
Will you stand the heat?
