Knockout Theory – Melancholy lyrics

Clock ticks away, life starts to fade, and you're just left with nothing
Here comes the light, therefore unite, at least you're doing something

Salt shaker on the right side (woah)
Can't find where nothing goes
Trapped inside a hapless stage from head to toe
Your quintessential puppet show
Everyone's a critic and I don't think I can take it anymore
Read a waiver, sign it, lick it, stamp it, throw it out the door
Just for the record, I'm not taking part in any of this 'status quo'

You're slowing
Keep going
You're throwing
Throwing it all away

I'll save the world, I'll break the mold
I won't go melancholy
I'll steal the sun, I'll break the glass
Defy the ordinary
Fire at will, set sights for thrill
Forget memento mori
Just count on me, 'cause I won't be
Your average front page story

Clock ticks away, life starts to fade, and you're just left here breathing
Just please the crowd, fail plain out loud, and they'll go on not caring

Please keep all hands off the merchandise (woah)
That's one I've heard before
I can't believe you're really satisfied and all
With being just another John Doe
Everybody's watching, but nobody's gonna' see you if you run
Flip a coin and spin the bottle, pull the trigger on a gun
If it's a crime to take a risk then let 'em cuff me for a job-well-done

You're slowing
Keep going
You're throwing
Throwing it all away

I'll save the world, I'll break the mold
I won't go melancholy
I'll steal the sun, I'll break the glass
Defy the ordinary
Fire at will, set sights for thrill
Forget memento mori
Just count on me, 'cause I won't be
Your average front page story

Oh, here we go again
Just in time for things to end

I'll save the world, I'll break the mold
I won't go melancholy
I'll steal the sun, I'll break the glass
Defy the ordinary
Fire at will, set sights for thrill
Forget memento mori
Just count on me, 'cause I won't be
Your average front page story
