So young to seem such a mess
Dead shy and scared half to death (of the rest)
Set sail from shores of innocence
For data banks and fashion friends

We don't know what we've become
And we're freaking out
When did we lose ourselves?
When did we lose ourselves?
Love forgive what we've become
Cause we need you now
So we can save ourselves
So we can save ourselves

Transcend the trend of proofs and pills
To numb the life that you have built (and you have spilt)
Breed life to fill the void inside
And teach them all to stand in line (and fall behind)

We don't know what we've become
And we're freaking out
When did we lose ourselves?
When did we lose ourselves?
Love forgive what we've become
Cause we need you now
So we can save ourselves
So we can save ourselves
