  • You can't feel the heat until you hold your hand over the flame
    You have to cross the line just to remember where it lays
    You won't know your worth now, son, until you take a hit
    And you won't find the beat until you lose yourself in it

    That's why we won't back down
    We won't run and hide
    Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
    I'm passing over you like a satellite
    So catch me if I fall
    That's why you stick to your game plans and party lives
    But at night we're conspiring by candlelight
    We are the orphans of the American Dreams
    Oh shine your light on me

    You can't fill your cup until you empty all it has
    You can't understand what lays ahead
    If you don't understand the past
    You'll never learn the fun now
    'Til you're standing at the cliff
    And you cant truly love until you've given up on it

    That's why we won't back down
    We won't run and hide
    Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
    I'm passing over you like a satellite
    So catch me if I fall
    That's why we stick to your game plans and party lives
    But at night we're conspiring by candlelight
    We are the orphans of the American Dream
    So shine your light on me

    She told me she that she'd never face the world again
    So I offered up a plan

    We'll sneak out while they sleep
    And sail off in the night
    We'll come clean and start over
    The rest of our lives
    When we're gone, we'll stay gone
    Out of sight, out of mind
    It's not too late, we have the rest of our lives
    We'll sneak out while they sleep
    And sail off in the night (we have the rest of our lives)
    We'll come clean and start over
    The rest of our lives
    When we're gone, we'll stay gone
    Out of sight, out of mind (we have the rest of our lives)
    It's not too late, we have the rest of our lives
    The rest of our lives

    Because we won't back down
    We won't run and hide
    Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
    I'm passing over you like a satellite
    So catch me if I fall
    That's why we stick to your game plans and party lives
    But at night we're conspiring by candlelight
    We are the orphans of the American Dream
    So shine your light on me (shine your light on me)
    No we won't back down
    We won't run and hide
    Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny (shine your light on me)
    I'm passing over you like a satellite
    'Cause these are the things that we can't deny, no
    This is a life that you can't deny us now Writer/s: Brandon Barnes, Joseph Principe, Timothy McIlrath, Zach Blair
