Are we growing up, or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take our tears, put 'em on ice
'Cause I swear I'd burn the city down to show you the light

We're the therapists pumping through your speakers
Delivering just what you need
We're well-read and poised, we're the best boys

We're the chemists who've found the formula
To make your heart swell and burst
No matter what they say, don't believe a word

'Cause I'll keep singing this lie if you'll keep believing it
I'll keep singing this lie, I'll keep singing this lie

Are we growing up, or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take our tears, put 'em on ice
'Cause I swear I'd burn the city down to show you the light

And we'll travel like gypsies only
With worse luck and far less gold
The kids you used to love but then we grew old

We're the lifers here 'til the bitter end
Condemned from the start
Ashamed of the way the songs and the words
Own the beating of our hearts

'Cause I'll keep singing this lie, I'll keep singing this lie

Are we growing up, or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take our tears, put 'em on ice
'Cause I swear I'd burn the city down to show you the light

There's a drug in the thermostat to warm the room up
And there's another around, to help us bend your trust
Got a sunset in my veins
And I need to take a pill to make this town feel okay

The best part of believe is the lie
I hope you sing along and you steal a line
I need to keep you like this in my mind
So give in or just give up

The best part of believe is the lie
I hope you sing along and you steal a line
I need to keep you like this in my mind
So give in or just give up

Are we growing up, or just going down?

Are we growing up, or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take our tears, put 'em on ice
'Cause I swear I'd burn the city down to show you the light
