Dangerkids – Light Escapes lyrics

He used to lie awake, counting breaths,
Each one he used was one less left.
Deep in his chest,
The hope was gone of him getting out or him moving on.
Yea, a hopeless song stirred in his head
Months at a time, but he couldn't lie,
He couldn't time and he couldn't rhyme,
Or express himself to save his life.
Yeah, he'd put his favorite records on,
Innerparty and linkin park,
He'd close his eyes and he'd sing along.
But he'd never make it on his own.
It's not the time and it's not the place
To have to eat your words,
'Cause it's not the fall and it's not the fail
It's what you do right afterwards.
And at these words I hope you rise,
Dig in deep and then choose a side,
Grab the mic and you'll shock them all
With your steady hands and wild eyes.
Wild fires deep inside
Torch them all and leave none alive,
If some survive then tell your friends a broken watch, a bad time.
So here's my match, let's burn them all,
Before the fall of man.
It's time to stand or stand for nothing at all!

I hope you bury this deep in your mind,
It carries on,
(It's not like it was before)
It never dies.
(So tell me now, what do you stand for?)
Before the scars and the secrets you hide,
I'll burn them all,
(It's not like it was)
Your ghosts inside!
(So tell me now, what do you stand for?)

Not long ago, the darkest place,
Shadows live and light escapes,
Empty hands and hollow eyes
That never give and only take.
Yeah, one mistake you'll come to see,
Is how you doubted thoughtlessly?
Is how you only recognize the person that I used to be?

So here's my match, let's burn it up, take everything you can.
Before you fly you know you gotta learn to stand.

Bury this deep in your mind,
It carries on,
(It's not like it was before)
It never dies.
(So tell me now, what do you stand for?)
Before the scars and the secrets you hide,
I'll burn them all,
(It's not like it was)
Your ghosts inside!
(So tell me now, what do you stand for?)

And I've been there before,
Their torches in hand.
I'll steady my feet
And learn how to stand.
And I'll burn alive,
But you'll know who I am!

(It's not like it was before)
(It's not like it was)
I hope you bury this deep in your mind,
It carries on,
(It's not like it was before)
It never dies.
(So tell me now, what do you stand for?)
Before the scars and the secrets you hide,
I'll burn them all,
(It's not like it was)
Your ghosts inside!
(So tell me now, what do you stand for?)
