Dead Sara – We Are What You Say lyrics

You gotta sink to learn to swim
These are the rules that they teach and they want you to live
Apologies will never do and I know that way too well
Brought down by somebody else's lack of education
Shouldn't be you that it hurts
But I took all the advice that I could take
Before I thought to give up

I bet you thought I'd give up

And this is what they told me...

These are the lies you gotta believe
They'll give you everything to lose if you disagree
Apologies are over used and I'd be cutting the line way too thin
I'm aware of this bitter behavior
I lost myself somewhere I never wanted to be
Now it's time to start all over - we were held to the light
But we never went blind

Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh
You can't back down kid, back down kid
Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh
You can't back out now, back out now
We are what you say
We are not what you think

Too lonely to survive the loss that was staring back with bloodshot eyes
I almost fell below the ground that I was standing on
Oh no, you said it yourself, you're disappointed
And I'm ashamed and embarrassed to say that
I was a failure, a failure
But not matter how low

Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh

You can't back down kid... Back down kid
Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh

You can't back out now

Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh
You can't back down kid... Back down kid
Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh Oh... Oh Oh
You can't back out now... Back out now
We are what you say
