Paradise Fears – Intro (Prelude) lyrics

This is a call to arms
For the poets that are inside of us
This is shedding our skin
Breaking the chains that are binding us

This pictures of truth
This is life in real time
All the words we always wanted
But could never make 'em rhyme

This is the way that she looked
This is what I believe
This is the way that it's been
And always will be

This is the war that was raging inside of me
When I told you all that I was fine
You taught me never underestimate the power
Of ten thousand hearts that are beating
In time

This is for everyone that's still holding on
To all the things they fucked up
And all the people they did wrong
All the songs they never sang
Our story's still the same

We've been holding it in so long
We've been holding it in so long
We've been holding it in so long

So hallelujah, Amen
Holy whatever, bless your soul
Because these are the words that set up
The verses that let us
Free ourselves through rock n' roll

This is music
This is spirit
This is passion if you let yourself hear it

Cause there's mercy in the verse
There's story in the chorus
A bridge to get us over the sea of doubt before us

It's all matched perfectly
In music to save us
Spinning the soundtrack to our beautiful chaos

Imperfect existence, grab it and own it
And I swear to God we'll have it all in that moment
So take every picture of your perfect life
You can splatter with color and the paint will dry
You can throw it in the air and you can watch it fly
Just for one last time squeeze it very, very tight

And let it go
