Dear Mr. Gepetto
I hope this finds you well
I wrote this letter,
'Cause we miss you here in hell

And now I know it's hard when you don't know what to think
And every single smile is a fake and you're waking up
You might try but you won't get by until you're crucified for all the things you try to do
Yeah, I don't care if you sink or swim
And I don't care how you hold it in
As long as you don't bother me with all the things I don't bother you with
9 times out of 10 you might be right
But what about the time you know you're wrong?
Your singing that same song
And everybody smiles but they'll never get along

I'm trying and I'm trying and I'm trying and I'm trying to let go
But everybody's going down tonight

We are the few that won't say nothing right
We are the footsteps fading into the night
Nobody cares and nobody stares with such conviction, and I say
I never wanted this, no one ever wanted this
But they gave it to me so I might as well be proud of it
I don't know where we went wrong
All I know now is I gotta do something right

So come clean
No one should have have to live with the things you've seen
But you're living anyway
Well, I stop the car and I put her in park
And I step outside, god I hate this part
When I see what I saw, what I thought was a life that was more than a chore
I'm just doing what I need to get by
I don't care if you leave or stay
But you might as well split
Because it's not the same as it was
When we said our last goodbye
And if you want the truth I was hoping one of us would pass away
Because it'd be much easier then
We could all get together and think about when
We were young, we were dumb, we were numb but in love
And I'm done so I'm sending out this letter today

I'm trying and I'm trying and I'm trying and I'm trying to let go:
But everybody's going down tonight

We are the few that won't say nothing right
We are the footsteps fading into the night
Nobody cares and nobody stares with such conviction, and I say
I never wanted this, no one ever wanted this
But they gave it to me so I might as well be proud of it
I don't know where we went wrong
All I know now is I gotta do something right

This has been the best night of my life
This has been the best night of my life
I could have lost my life
And I would have lost my mind
But now I'm fine, and I find
That this has been the best night of my life

This has been the best night of my life
(I still can't believe they had the heart to apologize)
This has been the best night of my life
(I still can't believe they had the heart to apologize)
I could have lost my life
And I would have lost my mind
But now I'm fine, and I find
That this has been the best night of my life

And as the day fades
No one investigates
Nobody answers when she calls his name
Another victim somewhere in a shallow grave
I want to hold her and tell her it's not your fault

Na na na...

And as the day fades
No one investigates
Nobody answers when she calls his name
Another victim somewhere in a shallow grave
I want to hold her and tell her it's not your fault

Na na na...
It's not your fault

We are the few that won't say nothing right
We are the footsteps fading into the night
Nobody cares and nobody stares with such conviction, and I say
I never wanted this, no one ever wanted this
But they gave it to me so I might as well be proud of it
I don't know where we went wrong
All I know now is I gotta do something right

We are the few that won't say nothing right
We are the footsteps fading into the night
Nobody cares and nobody stares with such conviction, and I say
I never wanted this, no one ever wanted this
But they gave it to me so I might as well be proud of it
And I know I've done something wrong
All I know now is I gotta do something... right
