(Take a step back, take a step back)

It's all big talk until something happens
The words mean nothing til they're followed by actions
Keep your mouth moving but your body still
You'll never hit the target if you're shooting empty shells

Slow it down now,
And take a step back, take a step back
Hold on tighter, we're gonna make this count

It's a shot in the dark, against all odds
They said we'd never make it this far
Well look at us now, we've found our way
Life is what you make of it
So make your faults, wonder what we could bend
Looking back on all of this,
I wanna know I made the best
Saving my rest for the grave

Pulling out of pockets to show what we got
Asleep at the wheel, dreaming and driving
Rather hit rock bottom than be stuck second guessing
They have the answers but they don't know the questions

Make something happen
We'll make mistakes and not learn our lessons

Slow it down now,
And take a step back, take a step back
Hold on tighter, we're gonna make this count

It's a shot in the dark, against all odds
They said we'd never make it this far
Well look at us now, we've found our way
Life is what you make of it
So make your faults, wonder what we could bend
Looking back on all of this,
I wanna know I made the best
Saving my rest for the grave

Hey Hey!
Slow it down now
Hey, hey!
Slow it down now
We've got this under control

Slow it down now,
And take a step back, take a step back
Hold on tighter, we're gonna make this count

It's a shot in the dark, against all odds
They said we'd never make it this far
Well look at us now, we've found our way
Life is what you make of it
So make your faults, wonder what we could bend
Looking back on all of this,
I wanna know I made the best
Saving my rest for the grave
