lyrics

Here comes the dread, the sudden apprehension
I don’t know where it comes from and I’m not sure how to stress this
I’m looking for the truth, I search in desperation
I’ve watched my whole damn life just for a spark of inspiration

Why is it so hard to start a new tradition?
We’re watching generations die of life in contradiction
“Just do what I say, don’t do what I do”
It’s hard to watch them all grow old and still die in their youth

I’m not giving in, I’m not accepting this is the end
I’m going to burn out trying to save myself
And I just want you to know I understand I am alone
And if I’ve learned from what you’ve said, it’s that I am already dead

I’m tired of always fighting but I know that it can’t wait
I’m strong enough to cope with it but what a goddamn waste
I never thought my energy would burn on all this dirt
And now my time is claimed, claimed but never earned

I’m not giving in, I’m not accepting this is the end
I’m going to burn out trying to save myself
And I just want you to know I understand I am alone
And if I’ve learned from what you’ve said, it’s that I am already dead

It’s going to catch up and it’s going to get bad
We’re right at the point where there’s no turning back
And you better not scream that you’re only a victim
The world is to blame and it’s only tradition
We’re not giving up, we’re not mindless machines
Repeating the lines that we see on our screens
This life we’ve been given is always the hardest
We’re meant to adventure, explore, and be artists

I’m not giving in, I’m not accepting this is the end
I’m going to burn out trying to save myself
And I just want you to know I understand I am alone
And if I’ve learned from what you’ve said, it’s that I am already dead
