    What's our mission
    Do we know
    But never listen
    For too long
    They held me under
    But I hear
    It's almost over
    In Detroit
    On a Memphis train
    Like you said it's
    Down in the heat and the summer rain of
    The automatic gauze of your memories
    Down in the sleep at the airplane races
    Try to hold on
    To this heart
    A little bit longer
    Try to hold on
    To this love aloud
    Try to hold on
    For this heart's
    A little bit colder
    Try to hold on
    To this love
    Paperback scrawl your hidden poems
    Written around the dried out flowers
    Here we are still trading places
    To try to hold on
    Pop tart
    Can you envision
    A free world
    Of clear division
    For too long
    They held us under
    But I know
    We're getting over
    In Detroit
    With the Nashville tears
    Like you said it's
    Down in the heat with the broken numbers
    Down in the gaze of solemnity
    Down in the way you've held together
    To try to hold on
    To this heart
    A little bit closer
    Try to hold on
    To this love aloud
    Try to hold on
    For this heart's
    A little bit older
    Try to hold on
    To this love aloud
    And we are still alive
    Try to hold on
    And we have survived
    Try to hold on
    And no one should deny
    We tried to hold onto the pulse of the feedback current
    Into the flow of encrypted movement
    Slapback kills the ancient remnants
    That try to hold on
    Try to hold on
    To this heart alive
    Try to hold on
    To this love aloud
    Try to hold on
    And we are still alive
    Try to hold on
    And we have survived
    Try to hold on
    Pop tart
    You never listen
    Skinned knees
    Try to hold on
    Stop start
    What's our mission
    Skinned knees
    Try to hold on

  • Matt from Houston, Txon youtube type in"try a short film" It is a short film the music video was based on. It's really good but the endings to the music video and film are way different!
