Red hand print on the white of your cheek
Pack your bags quiet, while the lion sleeps
Watch your mother put her name to the line
Next to the place where your father signed

And inevitably, what we used to be will
Succumb to the pull of gravity
And you will never, no you will never see with virgin eyes again

Cos this is the day that everything changes
And your world stops turning, running straight,
Into the break lights, you've come to nothing
This is the day that everything changes and your worlds collide
You know in time you'll wake to find you're a little unbroken

Hold the answer to the light to see your future
Two line, blue line tragedy
He brings the medal to the fire for the first time, tells you it's the last time and it will be

Cos inevitably, what we used to be will
Tainted by the hands of curiosity
And you will never, no you will never see with virgin eyes again

Cos this is the day that everything changes
And the world stops turning, running straight,
Into the break lights, you've come to nothing
This is the day that everything changes and your worlds collide
You know in time you'll wake to find you're a little unbroken

So how can I explain the isolated rain that follows you?
But wouldn't you agree running always slows you down
So welcome the pain
And stop yourself from delaying it
Cos the real life will never go away

Cos this is the day that everything changes
And the world stops turning, running straight,
Into the break lights, you've come to nothing
This is the day that everything changes and your worlds collide
You know in time you'll wake to find you're a little unbroken

Oh, you're a little unbroken
Oh, a little unbroken, yeah,
You're, oh, a little unbroken
