  • We're doing it

    I look around me,
    But all I seem to see,
    Is people going no where,
    Expecting sympathy

    It's like we're going through the motions,
    Of a scripted destiny
    Tell me where's our inspiration,
    If life wont wait,
    I guess it's up to me

    Woah!
    No, we're not gonna waste another moment in this town
    Woah!
    And we won't come back your world is calling out
    Woah!
    We'll leave the past in the past,
    Gonna find the future
    If misery loves company well,
    So long, you'll miss me when I'm gone

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Ooh, ooh, ooh

    Procrastination, running circles in my head
    While you sit there contemplating,
    You wound up left for dead (left for dead)
    Life is what happens while you're busy making your excuses
    Another day, another casualty
    And that won't happen to me

    Woah!
    No, we're not gonna waste another moment in this town
    Woah!
    And we won't come back your world is calling out
    Woah!
    We'll leave the past in the past,
    Gonna find the future
    If misery loves company well,
    So long, you'll miss me when I'm gone

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    When I'm gone, when I'm gone

    Let's go!

    Won't look back,
    When I say goodbye
    I'm gonna leave this a hole behind me,
    Gonna take what's mine tonight
    Because every wasted day becomes a wasted chance
    You're gonna wake up feeling sorry,
    Because life won't wait,
    I guess it's up to you

    Woah!
    No, we're not gonna waste another moment in this town
    Woah!
    And we won't come back your world is calling out
    Woah!
    We'll leave the past in the past,
    Gonna find the future
    If misery loves company well,
    So long, you'll miss me when I'm gone

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone Writer/s: ARNOLD LANNI, ARNOLD DAVID LANNI, CHARLES-ANDRE COMEAU, FLOYD NATHANIEL HILLS, NATE HILLS, PIERRE BOUVIER
