  • We come into this world unknown
    But know that we are not alone
    They try and knock us down
    But change is coming, it's our time now

    Hey everybody loses it
    Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes
    And hey, yeah I know what you're going through
    Don't let it get the best of you, you'll make it out alive
    Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
    Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever
    Here's to the damned to the lost and forgotten
    It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    We are all misfits living in a world on fire
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

    Hey, this is not a funeral
    It's a revolution, after all your tears have turned to rage
    Just wait, everything will be okay
    Even when you're feeling like it's going down in flames

    Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
    Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
    Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
    It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    We are all misfits living in a world on fire
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    You've just gotta turn it up loud when the flames get higher
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

    They can't do nothing to you, they can't do nothing to me
    This is the life that we choose, this is the life that we bleed
    So throw your fists in the air, come out, come out if you dare
    Tonight we're gonna change forever

    Everybody loses it,
    Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes

    Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
    Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
    Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
    It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    We are all misfits living in a world on fire
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    We're all misfits living in a world on fire
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
    Oh woah oh oh woah oh
    Sing it for the people like us, the people like us Writer/s: Blair Daly, James Michael, Meghan Shahnaz Kabir
