Brace yourself, brace yourself, cause we're all going down.
Watch us run out this race as we burn this place to the ground.
So tell me, is this what you expected?
Cause we're so screwed.
But we're far from protected.
Or so they promised you.
I'll say it slow to get it through;
We're wasting our days as we try to get a grip on our lives, grip on our lives.

But they're slipping away.
And we're all going to die here.
Unless we can learn to behave.

Cause we try so hard to live, but just let go.
Watch it all come crumbling down.
But it hurts knowing you're still around.
Yeah it's sad but true.
We're all miserable thinking of you.

So we try, we try to be honest.
But it's all lies, it's all lies.
And we think nothing can harm us.
But we're all just sheep.
And the wolf's at the window as you're slowly falling asleep, falling asleep.

We try to believe.
That this is what we need.
But we're all dieing slowly.

Cause we try so hard to live, but just let go.
Watch it all come crumbling down.
But it hurts knowing you're still around.
Yeah it's sad but true.
We're all miserable thinking of you.
Thinking of you.
We're always thinking, thinking of you

Cause you knocked down the walls.
The next time you fuck with me.
Pain will be brought on endlessly.
And I'll make sure you burn.

Cause you knocked down the walls. (x2)

Cause we try so hard to live!
You can lock all your doors but it's not going to save you tonight!
(Save you tonight)

Cause we try so hard to live, but just let go.
Watch it all come crumbling down.
But it hurts knowing you're still around.
Yea it's sad but true.
We're all miserable thinking of you.
Brace yourself, brace yourself!
Cause we're all coming down.
