lyrics

Be my witness
Times of weakness
Got my health
In the corner
Fill the order
For a spell
And a hit list
Fight the system

Enjoy the pain, it's yours for a while, girl
Don't run away, your fear, you're getting older
We are relying on you and your emotion
And as you go, promise of being bright -

Where did you go, my dear, don't slip away now
It's going slow, unclear, but you're alive now
Don't be alone in the news, it's mediocre
We're going home, I promise, so go and try -

And then the symptom is that you want to be the best that you could be
Trust none and be no other than the way you seem when they're looking
Outrun the system while you dry eyes and keep your knees from moving
High strung and innocent, moving worlds, barely.

There's always one more question
No guarantees are given
We're in the right direction
Keep going to the rhythm

Be my witness
In my pitiful times of weakness while I've
Got my health
Hiding out so far in the corner of my
Fill the order
Cause I'm gonna need it for a spell
Just get me through it
And a hit list
Cause I came to fight the system

And then the symptom is that you want to be the best that you could be
Trust none and be no other than the way you seem when they're looking
Outrun the system while you dry eyes and keep your knees from moving
High strung and innocent, moving worlds, barely.

And as the sunlight fades into view
Focus and see it's talking to you
Its words are cruel but helpful to you
This is all real you're in this
The only thing this life really is
Is understanding what we are living
Everything you'll ever do
Is working harder on you

Enjoy the pain, it's yours for a while, girl
Don't run away, your fear, you're getting older
We are relying on you and your emotion
And as you go, promise of being bright -

Working harder on you
Promise of being bright -
