I stole the key
I took the car downtown where the lost boys meet
I took the car downtown and took what they offered me
To set me free
I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
I saw the lights go down and they're standing in front of me

My scarecrow dreams
When they smash my heart into smithereens
I'll be a bright red rose combusting the concrete
Be the cartoon heart
Light a fire from a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart
We'll run wild
We'll be glowing in the dark

All the boys, all the girls
All that matters in the world
All the boys, all the girls
All the madness that occurs

All the highs, all the lows
As the Room is spinning Oh
We'll run wild
We'll start glowing in the dark

So we saw an innocent liar
We'll be glowing in the dark

    If you actually listen to the song, the vibe that is being released from it can take the youth into a whole new world. It expresses the message, "live like you're dying" and all that is to life is to be happy and to be free. If you judge this song because you haven't heard it yet, there are three things you can do after reading this: listen, live, and most importantly, run wild.

    Its an anthem in celebration of youth, freedom, recklessness and beauty. Do you all remember your days of glory, where there was no responsability, just reckless abandon? The trick is missing it and not wanting to go back because you are satisfied with your past, happy in your present and eager for the future.

    Its about them running about causing trouble being rebels but then all the boyss and all the girls come along and thats all that matters to them but then the girls break his heart thats why he mentioned it getting smashed into smithereens and all the madness occurs in his mind at first he was in a high but then he is in a low because the girl he loves left him but in the end they still glow in the dark hes been set free for a fresh start but still has dreams about scarecrows and him come bursting through the concrete in the end he wakes up to find his girl next to him
