There's only two ways out of here
You wait too late you'll be trapped here forever
There's only two ways out of here
One's through the door
The other's through me

[Verse 1]
Sometimes livin in a world like this
It's pretty hard not to go insane
Not pretty if you don't comply
Pretty easy if you don't complain
Stand there like you don't feel pain
No tears in the face of defeat
Pretend to the end that you don't fear change
Don't admit that your faith is weak
Don't say that you feel like dyin
Life's hard and it feels like diamonds
Goin home's just far too gone much too late to even feel like tryin
Can't understand what I'm sayin?
Can't figure out what I'm implying?
If you feel you don't wanna be alive,
You feel just how I am
I'm on the dark side and you can't come find him
Hell when it's light all around you yeah
When it's dark all inside him
No winners when it's me against me
One of us aint gone survive
My heart been broke for a while
Yours been the one keepin me alive

There's only two ways out of here
You wait too late you'll be trapped here forever
There's only two ways out of here
One's through the door
The other's through me

[Verse 2]
This world's such a fucked up place
My mind such a fucked up shape
Everything down here sucks
Maybe what's up there is great
We all gotta go one day
I just wanna cut to the chase
I wanna stop these nightmares
I just wanna touch your face
All you see is all my feats
All I see is all my flaws
All I hear is all my demons,
Even through your applause
All you see is all my flights
All I see is all my falls
All you see is all my rights
All I see is all my wrongs
Door keep tellin me to fight
Gun on the table tellin me to come on,
Tellin me to put him inside my hand,
Then put him up right next to my dome
Door keep tellin me to find a reason,
Anything to keep me from squeezin,
Simplest things, yeah you really like summer,
You really like music, you really like readin
Love, I can't win if it's me against me
One of us ain't gone survive
My heart been broke for a while yours been the one keepin me alive
Yours been the one keepin me alive
Yours been the one keepin me alive!

There's only two ways out of here
You wait too late you'll be trapped here forever
There's only two ways out of here
One's through the door
The other's through me
The other's through me
The other's through me
The other's through me
The other's through me
