  • She's starting to live her life
    From the inside out
    The sound of failure calls her name
    She's decided to hear it out

    So go tell Britney and go tell Gwen
    She's not tryin' to go against all them
    'Cause she's too scared and she, she can't pretend
    To understand where it begins or ends
    Or what it means to be dead
    It's just a sound going through your head
    Let them go on
    Let them go on

    Standing there in the graveyard
    While the moon sprays its fireworks in your hair
    The sound of failure calls her name
    She's decided to hear it out

    So go tell Britney and go tell Gwen
    She's not tryin' to go against all them
    'Cause she's too scared and she, she can't pretend
    To understand where it begins or ends
    Or what it means to be dead
    It's just a sound going through your head
    Let them go on
    Let them go on

    Where it begins or ends
    Or what it means to be dead
    It's just a sound going through your head
    Let it go on
    Let it go on
    Where it begins or ends
    Or what it means to be dead
    It's just a sound going through your head
    Let it go on
    Let it go on

    She doesn't know where it will take her
    And she's going into the unknown Writer/s: MICHAEL IVINS, STEVEN DROZD, WAYNE COYNE

  • Karl from Ingatestone, United Kingdomi love the lyrics about Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani in the song. even though they did reference Cher in their 1994 breakthrough 'She Dont Use Jelly' this makes me feel happy enough rather than biting myself, which i am quitting on Thursday
