  • And we keep speeding
    And we keep speeding
    And we keep crashing
    And we keep crashing
    And we keep reaching
    And we keep reaching
    And we keep crying
    'Til we start laughing

    Long before my fall from grace
    For a piece of me, they appeared
    From the throat, I'm tied to you
    All of us, we're cracked in two

    And the ones in the back cry "wait for me"
    And the ones in the front cry "you're too slow, you're too slow"
    And the ones who are weak cry "carry me"
    And the ones who are strong cry "let me go, let me go"

    We reach for the things we idolize
    But the rings are just for show
    Her beauty is a form of charity
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow

    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow

    (Na na na na na)

    Long before my fall from grace
    For a piece of me, they appear
    From the throat, I'm tied to you
    All of us, we're cracked in two

    And the ones we ignore cry "come to me"
    (Come to me)
    Are the ones we adore cry "give me space, give me space"
    And the ones who are cruel cry "beg for me"
    (Beg for me)
    Are the ones that possess, they love the chase, love the chase

    We reach for the things we idolize
    (Idolize)
    But the rings are just for show
    Her beauty is a form of charity
    (Charity)
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow

    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress
    Dressed to suppress all kinds of sorrow

    And we keep speeding
    And we keep speeding
    (Na na na na na)
    And we keep crashing
    And we keep crashing
    (Na na na na na)
    And we keep reaching
    And we keep reaching
    (Na na na na na)
    And we keep crying
