I'm looking for a sign
That I can't see
The good, the bad
It's somewhere in between

These warning signs
And this urban grinds
Me down

The kids are building fires
By their homes
The smoke is sending signals
Out in code

These safety suits
And these parachutes
I don't know

Gotta stop, drop, roll

When all these walls come down
They'll shake us
We fight not to be
Not to be weightless
When all these stars hit ground
They'll wake us
We fight not to be
Not to be weightless

I'm choking on the words
That I can't say
My lungs are full
But everything's
Misplaced

And these junkyard dogs
And these cherry bombs
Go off

The sun, the sky, the moon
Will fall apart
Come tumbling down
Just like a house of cards

And these fire escapes
And this lush landscape
It fades

When all these walls come down
They'll shake us
We fight not to be
Not to be weightless
When all these stars hit ground
They'll wake us
We fight not to be
Not to be weightless

Be weightless

I can feel this heavyweight
Hanging around my neck
I can feel your heartbeat
Bringing me back
Back again

When all these walls come down
They'll shake us
We fight not to be
Not to be weightless
When all these stars hit ground
They'll wake us
We fight not to be
Not to be weightless

Be weightless
Be weightless
