  • If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't
    If we don't

    If we don't kill ourselves we'll be the leaders of a messed-up generation
    If we don't kid ourselves will they believe us if we tell them the reasons why
    Do we take it too far, take it too far?
    Did we chase the rabbit into wonderland?
    Lose a hundred grand
    Will they understand
    It was all to stay awake for the longest

    March on, always after us
    Lost troops, half the class of us
    You man ain't seen the last of us
    Stick around yeah like Elastoplast
    Not half mast
    Raise the flag, kick the sand
    To let you know that we're coming
    And we're nasty men

    Don't need sleeping beauty
    No, it's what you did to me
    Come midnight and daybreak
    Yes, please go find me a name sake
    We got faith, but don't need Bibles
    Take the Michael, hear my recital
    While I hold the title
    Quite vital
    We get high on the opposite of Nytol

    It was all to stay awake for the longest time
    It was long, it was wrong
    But it felt so right
    See you at the finish line
    See you at the finish line
    If you got the heart to join us

    If we don't kill ourselves we'll be the leaders of a messed-up generation
    If we don't kid ourselves will they believe us if we tell them the reasons why
    Do we take it too far, take it too far?
    Did we chase the rabbit into wonderland?
    Lose a hundred grand
    Will they understand
    It was all to stay awake for the longest

    March on, always after us
    Lost troops, half the class of us
    You might not see the last of us
    Stick around yeah like Elastoplast
    Not half mast
    Raise the flag, kick the sand
    To let them know that we're coming
    And we're nasty men

    Don't need sleeping beauty
    No, it's what you did to me
    Come midnight and daybreak
    Yes, please go find me a name sake
    We got faith, but don't need bibles
    Take the Michael
    Hear my recital
    While I hold the title
    Quite vital
    We get high on the opposite of Nytol

    We just grow, if it's late
    Then we'll show, we don't wait
    We just grow, if you hate
    We don't show, we don't wait
    We just grow, if it's late
    Then we'll show, we don't wait
    We just grow

    If we don't, if we don't

    If we don't kill ourselves we'll be the leaders of a messed-up generation
    If we don't kid ourselves will they believe us if we tell them the reasons why
    Do we take it too far, take it too far?
    Did we chase the rabbit into wonderland?
    Lose a hundred grand
    Will they understand
    It was all to stay awake for the longest Writer/s: JOSEPH RAY, DANIEL STEPHENS, ELLIOT GLEAVE
