(Four, three, two, one)
Let's go!

Stop and wait, hold your applause,
Three, two, one but the camera's pause,
Lights go out and the frame goes soft,
The color's bled and the picture's off.
Time, it seems to stop,
You get a little bit but not a lot,
Dangerous kids, a bunch of misfits,
Show you what we got.
Yeah, it's on tonight,
I'm gone tonight,
Playing way too hard just to fall tonight.
Believe when I say when it's over,
You won't believe anything that you saw tonight.
So stop and wave to the silent crowd,
Three, two, one and the empty sound.
Applause, applause,
Before we bring the fucking house down!

Oh, it's taking control now.
Breaking open the gates, and tearing them now.
It feeds on the violence.
Just a number to them, a face in the crowd.
Unbreakable,
You're selling yourself like a brand,
And don't you know how much you pay
To sit in the palm of their hand?

I'm just a fake, just a lie.
You build it up and I'll break it down.
And the truth, yeah, it's mine,
And it's really all that I got.
And time, it seems to stop,
You get a little bit but not a lot.
Dangerous kids, a bunch of misfits,
Show you what we got.

Open your eyes, you're treading water.
Before you drown in the truth, become the lie.
I'd die tonight just to feel alive.
(You're waking up)
We'll die tonight just to feel alive.
(You're waking up)

This is a countdown to nothing,
Here in the palm of my hand.
So will you let me destroy you,
Like the machine that I am?

(Tan! ) This is a countdown to nothing (Four, three! ),
(Six! ) Here in the palm of my hand (Five! ).
(Four) So will you let me destroy (Three! ) you,
(Three! ) Like the machine... ? Like the machine... ?

And tonight,
We'll die tonight just to feel alive.

Open your eyes, you're treading water.
Before you drown in the truth, become the lie.
I'd die tonight just to feel alive.
(You're waking up)
We'll die tonight just to feel alive.
(You're waking up)

Dangerous kids, a bunch of misfits,
Show you what we got!
Let's go!
We'll die tonight just to feel alive.
We'll die tonight just to feel alive!
