  • The more you try to fight it
    The more you try to hide it
    The more infected, rejected, you feel alone inside it
    You know you can't deny it
    The world's a little more fucked up everyday

    I'm gonna save you from it
    Together we'll outrun it
    Just don't give into the fear
    So many things I would've told you If I knew that I was never gonna see you again

    I wanna lift you up into the light that you deserve
    I wanna take your pain into myself so you won't hurt

    Don't you dare surrender
    Don't leave me here without you
    'Cause I could never
    Replace your perfect imperfection

    The way you look us over
    Your counterfeit composure
    Pushing again and again and sinking lower and lower
    The world is on our shoulders
    Do you really know the weight of the words you say?

    You want a little of it
    You just can't let go of it
    You've got an ego to feed
    Too late to rise above it
    Don't look now but the little girl's got a grenade

    I'm gonna lift you up into the light you deserve
    I'm gonna take you down to the real world so you can watch it burn

    Don't you dare surrender
    Don't leave me here without you
    'Cause I would never
    Replace your perfect imperfection

    We stand undefined
    Can't be drawn with a straight line
    This will not be our ending
    We are alive, we are alive

    Don't you dare surrender
    Don't leave me here without you
    'Cause I would never
    Replace your perfect imperfection

    Don't you dare surrender
    I'm still right beside you
    And I would never
    Replace your perfect imperfection Writer/s: AMY LEE, JEN MAJURA, TIMOTHY TODD MCCORD, TROY WILLIAM MCLAWHORN, WILLIAM AMOS HUNT
