  • (The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
    (The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)

    Here we are
    At the end of the road, a road that's quietly caving in
    Come too far to pretend that we don't, we don't miss where we started
    Looking back, I see a setting sun, and watch my shadow fade into the floor
    I am left standing on the edge
    Wondering how we got this far, (How we got this far)

    They left us alone
    The Kids In The Dark
    To burn out forever
    Or light up a spark
    We come together
    State of the art
    We'll never surrender
    The kids in the dark
    So let the world sing
    "What a shame
    What a shame
    Beautiful scars
    On critical veins"
    Come together
    State of the art
    We'll never surrender
    The Kids in the dark
    The kids in the dark

    (The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)

    Here we are at the top of the hill, a hill that's quietly crumbling
    Been a while since you dressed for the kill, the kill that sent me tumbling
    Looking up, I see a falling star, and watch it's fire burn into the floor
    And I am left standing on the edge
    Wondering why we fall so hard, why we fall so hard

    They left us alone
    The Kids In The Dark
    To burn out forever
    Or light up a spark
    We come together
    State of the art
    We'll never surrender
    The kids in the dark
    So let the world sing
    "What a shame
    What a shame
    Beautiful scars
    On critical veins"
    Come together
    State of the art
    We'll never surrender
    The Kids in the dark
    The kids in the dark

    (The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)

    They left us alone
    The Kids In The Dark
    To burn out forever
    Or light up a spark
    We come together
    State of the art
    We'll never surrender
    The kids in the dark
    So let the world sing
    "What a shame
    What a shame
    Beautiful scars
    On critical veins"
    Come together
    State of the art
    We'll never surrender
    The Kids in the dark
    The kids in the dark

    (The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
    We'll never surrender
    The Kids in the dark
