  • It falls apart
    Clockwork hearts, running out
    Rusted needle in the vein
    We all fall down

    We find our place, in circuitry
    We worship our gods, the TV screens
    We substitute, our lives for another

    It's kill or be killed
    It's our nature
    To give up control
    It's our failure

    Like young lovers planting seeds
    It's anarchy, head down in shame
    Seasons come and seasons go and
    We grow old, never learn from our mistakes

    Around the crown, we all fall down
    Rusted people all in vain, corroding in the rain
    A well-made dream, flog it down, destroyed it for you
    Your time well spent, a living lie that covers everything

    It's kill or be killed
    It's our nature
    To give up control
    It's our failure

    Like young lovers planting seeds
    It's anarchy, head down in shame
    Seasons come and seasons go and
    We grow old, never learn from our mistakes

    Never

    Cross the river, down we go, hold me under
    Hold your breath, and play the part, race towards the finish line
    Cross the river, down we go, hold me under
    Hold your breath, and play the part, race towards the finish line

    Race towards the finish line
    What's mine is yours and yours is mine

    Race towards the finish line
    What's mine is yours and yours is mine
    Race towards the finish line
    What's mine is yours and yours is mine

    Race towards the finish line

    And hope is something you have lost
    The past is holding on and on
    And hope is something you have lost
    The past is holding on and on and on Writer/s: GAVIN BURROUGH, KRIS COOMBS-ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES-KREYE, RICHARD BOUCHER, RYAN RICHARDS
