  • It's like a heart attack, I see the shock when you face it
    We couldn't take it so we got a little wasted
    I'd really love to see the look on their face
    When you open your eyes, when you open your eyes

    You run away, but who is gonna save us
    The only people that you find are gonna slay us
    I'd really love to hear the sound of your voice
    When you're screaming their name, when you're screaming their name

    Pipe down, you gotta blow it up
    You gotta give 'em hell, you gotta pull the plug
    And you can run away, and you can kill the beast
    And you can try to kill yourself, but you can never kill me

    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    Well you can burn it again
    'Cause we will not go quietly
    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    Well you can tell all your friends
    That we will not go quietly (not go quietly)

    So when you find yourself, you're in a place that you're scared of
    You wake up to see a face you wouldn't dare love
    They're gonna try to take the blood from your veins
    When you open your eyes, when you open your eyes

    You run away, but who is gonna save us
    The only people that you find will betray us
    They're gonna hate to hear the sound of my voice
    When we're screaming their name, when we're screaming their name

    Pipe down, you gotta blow it up
    You gotta give 'em hell, you gotta pull the plug
    And you can run away, and you can kill the beast
    And you can try to kill yourself, but you can never kill me

    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    Well you can burn it again
    'Cause we will not go quietly
    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    Well you can tell all your friends
    That we will not go quietly (Not go quietly)

    Oh, we will not go quietly
    Yeah

    Pipe down, you gotta blow it up
    You gotta give 'em hell, you gotta pull the plug
    And you can run away, and you can kill the beast
    And you can try to kill yourself, but you can never kill me

    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    Well you can burn it again
    'Cause we will not go quietly
    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    Well you can tell all your friends
    That we will not go quietly

    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    You can tell all your friends
    That we will not go quietly
    Hey! If this is how the world will end
    You can burn it again
