  • Say what you like, I know what I am
    Sometimes a flood starts with a leak in the dam
    You said we'll never make a difference
    Maybe this battle is to fight indifference

    Naysayer
    Naysayer, hammer the nail
    We're all on our own, we can't decide what's true
    Betrayer, hammer the nail
    Such narrow lines separate me and you

    So sick of the sound of people giving up
    You can't stop me giving a fuck
    Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on
    Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on

    With every concession another piece of us dies
    Will we fight for nothing, if not our lives?
    Apathy is our new messiah
    Only he could let things get so dire
    All the messengers found knives in their backs
    Apathy is our new messiah
    The word made flesh, you can't fight fire with fire
    All the messengers found knives in their backs

    I know it haunts you, it haunts me too
    We're all on our own, we can't decide what's true
    Why are we fighting, when I'm just like you?

    Naysayer
    Naysayer, hammer the nail

    We're all on our own, we can't decide what's true
    Betrayer, hammer the nail
    Such narrow lines separate me and you

    So sick of the sound of people giving up
    You can't stop me giving a fuck
    Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on
    Fuck it, I'm a dreamer and I'm dreaming on

    Apathy is our new messiah
    The word made flesh, you can't fight fire with fire Writer/s: ALEX ANTHONY DEAN, DANIEL JOSEPH SEARLE, SAMUEL DAVID CARTER, THOMAS DUNCAN SEARLE
