lyrics

we’ve been talking about survival
but what about fighting back
fuck passivity where’s the passion
i don’t know about you
but i think i’ll rest when i’m dead
and until then
if we can shed our fears to dance
and apply that to our lives
imagine what the stars will think
when we come out tonight
my greatest fear
is growing old and comfortable
with no scars and no broken bones
the gravest threat against us
are the holes we for ourselves
in the sands of uncertainty
i want to be cold and hungry sometimes
to bleed if that what it takes because
these eyes will be dust one day

so get up off the floor
because tonight you’re going to die
this is your last chance to dance
in the life you’ll leave behind
and when we wake up reborn
into this fucked up world
fearless, wild, and free we’ll
chase the civilized from the maps that they write
and the borders that could never contain a free soul
dead or alive

well i walked these city streets wandering
i was looking for answers in this godless world
and i found them as i walked
beneath my feet
i saw a little dandelion
a pushin up through the concrete
if a weed that small can crumble
these city streets into dust
just imagine what a room
full of kids like us could do
if we could shake this fear that binds us
and start risking everything ahead and behind us
and cast our lots to the chaos
of a life worth living
you see my generation
is dying to forget
that we are gods
and we can do anything

so get up off the floor
cause tonight you’re going to die
this is your last chance to dance
in the life you’ll leave behind
and when we wake up reborn
into this fucked up world
fearless, wild, and free we’ll
erase the civilized from lies that they call history
every one of those books will burn
in the presence of the stories we write with our lives
