  • Long live the reckless and the brave
    I don't think I want to be saved
    My song has not been sung
    So long live us

    Looking out at a town called Suburbia
    Everybody's just fighting to fit in
    Little rats running mazes, having babies
    It's a vicious little world that we live in
    Looking back at a life on the other side
    I realize that I didn't fit in
    Didn't hate it but I didn't quite relate it
    To my precious little world

    So long live the reckless and the brave
    I don't think I want to be saved
    My song has not been sung

    And long live the fast times, so come what may
    I don't think I'll ever be saved
    Our song has not been sung
    Long live us

    Breaking out of a town called Suburbia
    I remember everybody always saying
    "Little brat, must be crazy, never make it
    In our vicious little world"
    Still I'm leaving
    Got a van, got a chance, got my dignity
    Got a dream, got a spark, got somewhere to be
    Take a breath, say goodbye
    To their precious little world
    (And say goodbye to me)

    So long live the reckless and the brave
    I don't think I want to be saved
    My song has not been sung

    And long live the fast times, so come what may
    I don't think I'll ever be saved
    Our song has not been sung
    Long live us

    Long live us

    Long live the reckless and the brave
    I don't think I want to be saved
    My song has not been sung

    Long live the reckless and the brave
    I don't think I want to be saved
    My song has not been sung

    And long live the fast times, so come what may
    I don't think that I'll ever be saved (I know)
    Our song has not been sung
    Long live us

    Long live us Writer/s: ALEXANDER WILLIAM GASKARTH, JACK BASSAM BARAKAT, MICHAEL JOSEPH GREEN, ROBERT RYAN DAWSON, ZACHARY STEVEN MERRICK
