We...
Are ready for the siege
We are armed up to the teeth
Be careful how you live and breathe
Release what's broken underneath

How many times do you wanna die?
How many ways do you wanna die?

Do you feel safe again? Look over your shoulder
Very carefully look over your shoulder

We can laugh about it now
We hope everything works out
Be careful how you lick your wounds
Believe the change is coming soon

How many times do you wanna die?
How many ways do you wanna die?

Do you feel safe again? Look over your shoulder
Very carefully look over your shoulder

You used to do a little, but a little won't fly
Right before you hit your prime
That's where we fell in love, but not the first time

Can I please you still?
Remain in your father's will
Or does it make you ill?

Let us bruise their knees
We will aim straight for defeat
You will be relieved

So relieved, so relieved to the bone... and desire?
Bitter sparks turned to friendly fire
Misery inspires

Your throat has been cut several times before
I never noticed the size of the flow
Look at me, then ignore

Do you feel safe again? Look over your shoulder
Carefully look over your shoulder

You said you believe it, but believing won't fly
Right before you hit your prime
That's when we fell in love, but not the first time

And when it's all over and you open your eyes
You see the world turned on it's side
And you'll be lying by a note on the floor signed,
The Royal We
Love The Royal We

    Relationship on the rocks and they're on their final fight to save it but he's not optimistic about it. Do you feel safe that our relationship is secure? Carefully look over your shoulder, (i may not be there anymore).
    The Royal We meaning that, in the end, he finally gave in to her calling him selfish and always thinking he was right. The royal we is an expression indicating that someone is right by divine providence, in other words, God knows I'm right.
