  • Can you feel the urgency?
    Like a needle pulling out
    Can you feel the urgency?
    Pulses of anxiety

    We're just faces in the crowd
    Pulses of anxiety.
    Are these the lies that we've been taught to believe?
    Are these the lives that we have opted to lead?

    Uh oh, uh oh
    Staring at the clock
    I hear each tick and tock
    And they whisper that I lost the race

    But I won't fucking stop
    I'll hold you by my side
    I need you here tonight
    'Cause' if we're gonna' lose this thing

    Then we're goin' out in style
    Time will replace reality
    Now we are peaking through the hours
    Time will replace reality

    So I grasp for sanity
    I refuse to be devoured
    So I grasp for sanity
    Are these the lies that were taught to believe?

    Are these the lives we have opted to lead?
    Uh oh, uh oh
    Staring at the clock
    I hear each tick and tock
    And they whisper that I lost the race

    But I won't fucking stop
    I'll hold you by my side
    I need you here to fight
    'Cause' if we're gonna' lose this thing

    Then we're goin' out in style [Repeat: x 3] Writer/s: DISASHI LUMUMBA-KASONGO, MATTHEW MCGINLEY, TRAVIS MCCOY
