Take a trip down these empty streets
And see what we have done
This night was once so alive
And full of wide awake eyes
This beating in my chest is getting old
And some stories are best left untold
And if it's time to lay our heads down
Then I must protest.

Now this party has brought us down
Into the sewers where our tears flow
My mind is swimming with sharks
I can't see where I'm walking
Because your love has left me blind
And so it shall for all of time
And if this is all my future holds
Then I must protest.

Can't you tell?
This isn't meant to be
And can't you see
You've brought it apon yourself
This ship is sinking
Now there's only one lifejacket
And I don't feel like sharing
So I guess this is goodbye.

And they said we couldn't fly
So I'd happily watch you fall

This morning my alarm went off
And I thought about what the day will bring
So the alarm clock is smashed against the wall
And I went back to sleep
Cus the white doves serenade
Was written by drunken men
To forget the seconds spent sober.

Every time I said I loved you
I fucking lied
And every time I said you looked beautiful
My stomach fucking turned.

Take a trip down these empty streets
And see what we have done
This night was once so alive
And full of wide awake eyes
This beating in my chest is getting old
And some stories are best left untold
And if it's time to lay our heads down
Then I must protest.

Now this party has brought us down
Into the sewers where our tears flow
My mind is swimming with sharks
I can't see where I'm walking
Because your love has left me blind
Why do I do this to myself?
And if this is all my future holds
Then I must protest.

Can't you tell?
This isn't meant to be
And can't you see
You've brought it apon yourself
This ship is sinking
Now there's only one lifejacket
And I don't feel like sharing
So I guess this is goodbye.

And they said we couldn't fly
So I'd happily watch you fall
