Lights dim with the window cracked
Twist the cap off the bottle, take a sip
Take a hit, fade to black
Promise that I'm winnin' ever since I made the pact
I've been going for it like I never planned to make it back

I'm on this novocaine and fuckin' feeling great
We're not even Stevens, I say that for Steven's sake
I need a way out, but by now it'll be the same
Take another Tylenol if you wanna relieve the pain
Meaning's changed, so I'm living what I rap about
I'm not acting this time, I'm acting out
Fuck your average, I want better than good enough
Surrender in the war, and if you were late then put em' up

Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care
Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care

How'd I end up in this place?
Pick me up off of the floor,
Swimming through nights full of drinks
Fuck if I make it to shore
I feel it up in my veins, I feel it up in my bones
It's taking over my brain, it's taking over control

Man, I'm used to fightin', I feel like a titan
This shit is so electric man, I should be throwin' lightning
So count me out of your life and take it to the bank
And raise your arms up if you're down to join the ranks
But then again, you can't lose if you don't play
You can't wear out your welcome if you don't stay
So I'm gone, I'll forget it and I won't wait
Hands in the air if you get it in your own way

Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care
Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care
Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care

Wave em' like you just don't care
Wave em' like you just don't care
And if you feel like you're going nowhere,
Wave em' like you just don't care
Cause tonight we surrender
Wave em' like you just don't care

Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care
Tonight we surrender and live it forever
White flags in the air, wave em' like you just don't care

(Hey! Oh! Wave em', wave em'! Hey! Oh!)
Wave em' like you just don't care
(Hey! Oh! Wave em', wave em'! Hey! Oh!)
Wave em' like you just don't care
(Hey! Oh! Wave em', wave em'! Hey! Oh!)
Wave em' like you just don't care
(Hey! Oh! Wave em', wave em'! Hey! Oh!)
Wave em' like you just don't care
Hey! Oh! Wave em', wave em'! Hey! Oh!
Wave em' like you just don't care

And if you feel like you're going nowhere
Wave em' like you just don't care
Cause tonight we surrender
Wave em' like you just don't care

Wave em' like you just don't care
Wave em' like you just don't care
Wave em' like you just don't care
