  • You won't see my die here
    You always say I need to get as far as I can
    While I've got time to play with and any risk
    I'll take it
    Or fade away in this suburban wasteland
    And watch all your plans sink right under your feet
    Sink right under your feet

    Watch all your plans sink right under your feet
    Under your feet is the ground to break
    You only take what you got
    So don't just sit and watch the atrophy of it

    I have stood back for way too long
    You are broken
    You are so broken
    I can see that we may be running out of time
    The curtain's falling in slow motion
    I can feel that the sense has left your mind
    The curtain's falling in slow motion
    Why did you go
    I can't watch
    So quiet and peaceful
    Where did I go wrong
    Say you can stay
    I can't look away

    You won't see me die here
    You won't see me die here

    Now now
    Do you hear me now?
    Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
    Now now
    Do you hear me now?
    Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
    Why? Why?
    Ask me why?
    Go ahead and act like you don't know why
    Why? Why?
    Ask me why?
    I'll scream
    You blow me away
    You blow me away
    You blow me away
    Well can you give me my breath back?
    Can you give me my breath back?
    Can you give me my breath back?
    Can you give me my breath back?

    Do you hear me now?
    Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
    Do you hear me now?
    Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
    Do you hear me now? Writer/s: Devin Oliver
