  • I could never own up, I need to speak up
    I don't want to grow up, don't want to end up
    Caught in a landslide with the other side
    Living for the paycheck, dying for the weekend
    Take another Xanax, cheating on your girlfriend
    Taking your last breath, counting down the time

    Don't tell me it's too late, I'm stuck at Heaven's gate
    Strike a match and start a wildfire
    I'll own all my mistakes, won't give you what you take
    Watch you burning in the wildfire

    They said I'd never make it (watching me fall)
    All the time I wasted (learning to crawl)
    Crawl from the ashes as this world comes crashing down

    Don't tell me it's too late, I'm stuck at Heaven's gate
    Strike a match and start a wildfire
    I'll own all my mistakes, won't give you what you take
    Watch you burning in the wildfire

    We won this war, we cursed and swore
    They stood no chance at all (the underdogs came home)
    We won this war, we cursed and swore
    They stood no chance at all

    I don't forget, I don't forgive
    I'll never change the way I live
    I always fought the urge to fall in line
    I turned my back on all the rules
    I'll never heed the king of fools
    I'll never lead the perfect kind of life

    I don't forget, I don't forgive (we won this war)
    I'll never change the way I live (we cursed and swore)
    I always fought the urge to fall in line (they stood no chance at all)
    I turned my back on all the rules (we won this war)
    I'll never heed the king of fools (we cursed and swore)
    I'll never lead the perfect kind of life (they stood no chance at all)
