lyrics

I'd rather fade, become a backdrop,
Than feed off tragedy, oh, lap it up, up, up.
But we're so lucky, so let's turn a blind eye,
And we'd never say it, but let's hope our roads bring death tonight.

I just can't bring myself to speak about the mundane,
I hate the idea of routine, this cycle's not for me.
And I know this is the only thing that's keeping me afloat,
But every breath I try to give just makes me wanna fucking sink.

(Oh, we're the good guys)
People would miss us if we left,
So close your eyes, boy, and pray to god the vultures give you rest.
(You're so important)
Well go figure, without me by your side, maybe you'd have to lift a finger.

If I could trade it all,
Then I would trade it all.
If I could burn it to the ground,
I would bury myself in flames,
Bury myself in flames,
Bury myself in flames,
Bury us all in flames.

A fair trial is a far cry from justice,
Keep your eyes fixed ahead, man, and trust me, I got this.
Have you ever known a man to put love before power?
The starving, they feed upon the weak and the cowards.

The hand that feeds is growing tired and withered,
Let the test subjects starve and kill themselves to deliver.
But I'd rather it chokes me than get on my knees,
Oh, and I'd rather be a rat than join an army of thieves.

Get on your knees, boy, and beg,
Beg for acceptance.

I long for moments where I feel like I'm not wasting my time.
(Pat the children on their heads and feed them lies)
I crave those hours where I feel like my time is mine.
(Round up the wolves and set them loose upon this town)
I miss not being afraid to go to sleep at night.
(Trigger the bombs and set this city alight)
The hole that's been ripped in me is showing no signs of healing.
(Rip their hearts out of their chests and let them die)
