lyrics

I want to tell you a tale thats never told
So not the one where we don’t die or get old
The one that we all know but can’t believe, can’t admit,
And if you’ll listen as well it won’t go back in its box
I’d like to spin a truth thats never been heard
The curtain falls and all thats left is absurd
Know it but look past the fact life is ridiculous
No walls and only one chance
Just break all the rules that you can

So what we fighting for?
An idea that somewhere there is something more
So what we fighting for?
For our lives
Only this and nothing more
I know where we’re going and what will follow
Its madness and this way it (comes)

Come count the times that you give chance a meaning
Pre-programmed infiltration; roots running deep
And as we grow on falsehoods all truths lie just enough
To crack the balancing act, to break the odds tip them back
Let’s write a story where no one need break free
Accept the chaos its beauty embodied
No one is pulling levers; don’t think about it
Break all the rules that you can
Just don’t try and see how it ends
So what we fighting for?
An idea that somewhere there is something more
So what we fighting for?
For our lives.
Only this and nothing more
I know where we’re going and what will follow
Its madness and this way it comes

Comes for your best then still takes the rest
Madness has come
Don’t stop or it’s won

Don’t think about it
No sleepwalking
You’d only want to feel it again

So what we fighting for?
An idea that somewhere there is something more
So what we fighting for?
For our lives.
Only this and nothing more

I know where we’re going and what will follow
Its madness that’s coming and this way it flows
The only reason to pull meaning
From inconsequence
Is to try avoid the truth
Lids off the box now for good
Just don’t try to see what it’s holding for you
