So light a match and drop it fast, and run like hell and don't look back,
So light a match and drop it fast, and run like hell and don't look back.

Maybe this fire is just what I need,
Maybe the ashes are all that I'll ever be
But until then I'll keep on burning.

To be put in place
To be stood up to
Every selfish word shoved down your throat,
Just keep on, just keep on.

We're just starting a fire,
Be careful of the lives we'll burn. (x2)

I'm self-destructive, at heart.
I won't stop until I tear myself apart.
We can fight this.
And we're self-destructive, at heart.
We won't stop until we tear each other apart.
I won't leave for the sake of you.

All we are are stupid kids
Passing the time with dynamite and lipstick
And you want me to be something I could never be
You can't keep me on a leash anymore than you can keep the sun from burning.

Oh baby if you could see me now,
You might not like what I've become
But there's no stopping now
I'm swimming in quicksand and falling in love
With the idea of going completely insane,
And this is what I've become and you can't make me stay.

This is the last time
To feel alive
To feel something real
This is my life
I felt something real

Don't you dare
Beg for mercy.
I will not hear you now
Don't make a sound.

It ain't a party 'til you can't feel a thing,
When all the monsters come out of hiding.
We dance to forget I can't remember anything at all.

All we are are stupid kids
Passing the time with dynamite and lipstick
And you want me to be something I could never be
You can't keep me on a leash anymore than you can keep the sun from burning.
So get off of my back you'll never make me feel regret
This is who I am and there's looking back
This is who I am and there's looking back
So all aboard, all aboard, this train is running off the tracks, and there's no looking back, and there's no looking back, and there's no looking back.
