[Chorus] Slow down Those words mean nothing My brain just revs up faster Pressure bomb in a goddamn knife fight [Verse 1] Ecstatic pathways runaway, flood my mind Overstimulation makes me feel like I’m alive Oh I wish there was a way that I could sing these lines A million miles a minute maybe then I could begin to feel like They could keep up with the semi-automatic Static that’s keeping me up It drives me forward every moment Makes sure I don’t stop too long to Smell the flowers I been here too long I might burn up and explode [Chorus] Slow down Those words mean nothing My brain just revs up faster Pressure bomb in a goddamn knife fight [Verse 2] I get in the way of myself And it hurts to admit That sometimes I’m unequipped To handle It all on my own But why do it alone? You might burn out and explode [Chorus] Slow down Those words mean nothing My brain just revs up faster Pressure bomb in a goddamn knife fight [Bridge] I’m at the end of my means From idolizing a made-up man who day could be me But does version sleep at night Or ever take a minute to just breathe Or Just to be [Chorus] Slow down Those words mean nothing My brain just revs up faster Pressure bomb in a goddamn knife fight Slow down Those words mean nothing My brain just revs up faster Pressure bomb in a goddamn knife fight

[Intro] Kerosene lit lanterns burn through faded pages Not a single star graces our sky tonight The crickets have grown bored of filling our silent spaces We’re losing time and got to make this right [Verse 1] I sing this song to incinerate your skin Just sing along and... (dance) Build for us from their ashes A brand new city Set fire to your matches Dowse them in gasoline [Pre-Chorus] Rebuilding skyscrapers from broken glass and broken souls Ain't got no blueprint just a purpose and a wrecking ball [Chorus] Brick by brick, we’ll take back what they took Stand in the ashes of what once belonged to you And I’m so sick of this Just take a good hard look At how they blurred your vision And they shaped your view [Verse 2] Let the sun just incinerate your skin To start all over Rebuild what they destroyed (Destroyed!) Make weapons of your voice (Your voice!) Whatever they employ, I’ll exploit, make null and void [Pre-Chorus] Rebuilding skyscrapers from broken glass and broken souls Ain't got no blueprint just a purpose and a wrecking ball [Chorus] Brick by brick, we’ll take back what they took Stand in the ashes of what once belonged to you And I’m so sick of this Just take a good hard look At how they blurred your vision And they shaped your view Oh, brick by brick, we’ll take back what they took Stand in the ashes of what once belonged to you And I’m so sick of this Just take a good hard look At how they blurred your vision And they shaped your view [Bridge] I set all of these fires But now I’m the one who’s all burnt out Why is it so hard to fight for what's right I’m breaking down And what if I stepped out of this ring I abandoned everything I can’t carry this team Marching along in single file (This team, this team!) Surrendering their lives (This team) [Chorus 2] Pitch black clouds shadow the burning sun But I won’t let these vultures think that they have won I’ll be the last one standing when the end’s begun I’ll hide away so I don’t have to run [Chorus] Brick by brick, we’ll take back what they took Stand in the ashes of what once belonged to you And I’m so sick of this Just take a good hard look At how they blurred your vision And they shaped your view Oh, brick by brick, we’ll take back what they took Stand in the ashes of what once belonged to you And I’m so sick of this Just take a good hard look At how they blurred your vision And they shaped your view

[Verse 1] My head is overflowing, with these thoughts That if I return the favor you might understand But I know, I know you could never carry the burden you’ve left me with and I can’t give it back So why even try? [Pre-Chorus] I’m reeling from all of the pain I feel it making me insane [Chorus] If it’s an eye for an eye then we all go blind If it came to it would you cross that line? With the taste of the blood on your tongue like wine And the weight of your crimes weighing on your mind It’s an eye for an eye and we all go blind again [Verse 2] An arm and a leg, my friend, les yeux d'la tete I never give as much as I get This path of heart attacks is paved with folks who only gave their enemies what they had coming I don’t know if it’s worth it [Pre-Chorus] I’m reeling from all of the pain (I’m reeling from all of the pain) I feel it making me insane (I feel it making me insane!) [Chorus] If it’s an eye for an eye then we all go blind If it came to it would you walk that line? With the taste of the blood on your tongue like wine And the weight of your crimes weighing on your mind Is it a knife or a lie is it in your back Is it all I need? Is it all I have? Will it bring me the peace that I need so desperately? Will I see? It’s an eye for an eye and we all go blind again [Bridge] When you seek vengeance you must dig two graves (Eye for an eye, we all blind) (Eye for an eye, we all blind) (Eye for an eye, we all blind) (Eye for an eye, we all blind) (Eye for an eye, we all blind) [Chorus] If it’s an eye for an eye then we all go blind If it came to it would you walk that line? With the taste of the blood on your tongue like wine And the weight of your crimes weighing on your mind Is it a knife or a lie is it in your back? Is it all I need? Is it all I have? Will it bring me the peace that I need so desperately? Will I see? It’s an eye for an eye and we all go blind again

[Chorus] I don’t take the sea for granted, it could dry any time it wants I don’t take the sky for granted, it could fall anytime it pleases I don’t take the land for granted, it could flood anytime this year Nor do I the seeds it’s planted, they could easily take me down [Verse 1] Why can't I get through Why can't I get through Why can't I get through to you You’ll never understand till it’s gone and there’s blood on your hands Well I know damn well what I give is what I oughta get But what if what I give is something I alone possess [Pre-Chorus] The world could turn itself on its head It could turn clockwise instead The earth could spin to west [Chorus] I don’t take the sea for granted, it could dry any time it wants I don’t take the sky for granted, it could fall anytime it pleases I don’t take the land for granted, it could flood anytime this year Nor do I the seeds it’s planted, they could easily take me down [Post-Chorus] Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Just don’t you take me for granted [Verse 2] The air in my lungs It never comes easily Sometimes my throat constricts and I cannot breathe I wheeze and pray for a gasp of fresh air A slip of the tongue Could rattle a house of cards Like a snake, suffocate, asphyxiate There’s no fix, too late Tipping over, but you seem sober So where’d that judgment go? [Pre-Chorus] The world could turn itself on its head It could turn clockwise instead The earth could spin to west [Chorus] I don’t take the sea for granted, it could dry any time it wants I don’t take the sky for granted, it could fall anytime it pleases I don’t take the land for granted, it could flood anytime this year Nor do I the seeds it’s planted, they could easily take me down [Bridge] Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take a photo while you can We won’t be here for long Lonely wolf keeps friends as lambs Starves when they are gone [Chorus] I don’t take the sea for granted, it could dry any time it wants I don’t take the sky for granted, it could fall anytime it pleases I don’t take the land for granted, it could flood anytime this year Nor do I the seeds it’s planted, they could easily take me down I don’t take the sea for granted, it could dry any time it wants I don’t take the sky for granted, it could fall anytime it pleases I don’t take the land for granted, it could flood anytime this year Nor do I the seeds it’s planted, they could easily take me down [Outro] Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Take me down Just don’t you take me for granted

[Verse 1] The world has turned itself on it’s head The trees don’t grow they kill instead Where hope once was the light’s turned black We find find faith in the strangest places [Pre-Chorus] The marchers walk the streets in reverse with their heads down Blind to the color they’ve painted this town They stare at mirrors, wearing masks And prudently perform their task [Chorus] They march along in single file Surrendering their sense of style Happily police the streets With vacant eyes and plastic smiles [Verse 2] How can you watch our castles crumble down? (Stand in the ashes of your city that burned to the ground) I’m wonderin' where I heard this “You said you'd give me purpose” [Pre-Chorus] The marchers walk the streets in reverse with their heads down Blind to the color they’ve painted this town They stare at mirrors, wearing masks And prudently perform their task [Instrumental] [Chorus] They march along in single file Surrendering their sense of style Happily police the streets With vacant eyes and plastic smiles March along in single file Surrendering their sense of style Happily police the streets With vacant eyes and plastic smiles [Bridge] The uniform will set you free Close your eyes and you will see They’ll soon do to you what they’ve done to me [Chorus] They march along in single file Surrendering their sense of style (To me) Happily police the streets With vacant eyes and plastic smiles (To me) March along in single file Surrendering their sense of style (Me) Happily police the streets With vacant eyes and plastic smiles

[Verse 1] I’m only here to kill my own confusion I found a backdoor but no solution Lying here while the sands fall down Won't heal my hands right now or their blue contusions I’m on a hell-bound elevator When I got on I never planned for it to be this way I burnt out the white hot flame inside me Now my skin is scorched to ashes And I’m burning in the flame [Chorus] I wish I could reverse, reverse And stop the hour glass Because the earth is spinning round' the sun too fast A dead end awaits this pointless track I’m thinking I might get off and just turn back [Verse 2] I’m starting to see that the world is gonna end without me I don’t wanna let it pass me by I don’t wanna die here in this hole I won’t fade away I’ll detonate my soul [Chorus] I wish I could reverse, reverse And stop the hour glass Because the earth is spinning round' the sun too fast A dead end awaits this pointless track I’m thinking I might get off and just turn back I wish I could Reverse, Reverse And stop the hour glass Because the earth is spinning round' the sun too fast A dead end awaits this pointless track I’m thinking I might get off and just turn back [Bridge] Then a fire started in the hallway And the smoke rose to the sky I looked inside myself and asked my ego why If ashes turn to cities and the stars into the moon Then why am I inside of my own mind? [Chorus] I wish I could reverse, reverse And stop the hour glass Because the earth is spinning round' the sun too fast A dead end awaits this pointless track I’m thinking I might get off and just turn back Reverse, reverse And stop the hour glass Because the earth is spinning round' the sun too fast A dead end awaits this pointless track I’m thinking I might get off and just turn back [Outro] I wish I could reverse, reverse My time is running out Because these words, they burn And scorch inside my mouth I’m mashing the buttons on the wall I’m realizing that this car only goes down
