I will not let you push me back away
From where the sound attacks the planet's flame
This is not a guessing game
(Oh no)
I will not let you change my name
(No go)

People fall, towers crumble
Planes get shot, and soldiers fumble
We don't make the moon give off it's light
And you ain't even got a dog in the fight
Believe me, cause you will
Get left behind me
I am the voice above the noise
And we need a rocket so bring in the voice

This one's for the people
Don't lose heart cause things get better
You never know the sequel
Of what might happen if you let it
Let's go to the city
With shining lights and never let it go

I won't let go

I can dance inside the grave
(Watch this)
I've been to hell before today
(Who gives?)
They cannot keep us in the earth
(Oh no)
I will not let them bury me
(No go)

People fall, towers crumble
Planes get shot, and soldiers fumble
They don't make the ocean breathe tonight
And they cannot hear the voice coming out of the light
Believe me, cause you will
Get left behind me
I am your ship, I am your throne
And I am a tent when the world isn't home

This one's for the people
Don't lose heart cause things get better
You never know the sequel
Of what might happen if you let it
Let's go to the city
With shining lights and never let it go [x2]

(Come on! )

(I won't let go [x2])

Let's go to the city
With shining lights and never let it go
(I won't let go)

I won't let go [x3]
