There's no savin' anything
I'll swallow the shine of the sun
There's no savin' anything
I'll swallow the sun

But I won't be no runaway
'Cause I won't run
No, I won't be no runaway
What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We've got another thing comin' undone
And it's takin' us over

We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead go ahead throw your arms in the air tonight
We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead go ahead loose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We've got another thing comin' undone

But I won't be no runaway
'Cause I won't run
No, I won't be a runaway
'Cause I won't run
No I won't be no runaway
What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We've got another thing comin' undone
And it's takin' forever

We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead go ahead throw your arms in the air tonight
We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead go ahead loose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing comin' undone
We got another thing comin' undone
And it's taking forever

I go breaking everything
With you swallowing the shine of the sun
I'll go breaking everything
Through the shine of the sun

But I won't be no runaway
Cause I won't run
No, I won't be no runaway
Cause I won't run
No, I won't be no runaway
What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing comin' undone
And it's taking us over

We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead go ahead throw your arms in the air tonight
We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead go ahead loose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone
We got another thing coming undone
And it's taking us over
And it's taking forever
