  • If there was a plan to fail I would've found another way
    To start over again and reset
    I realized that if they told us to change
    Then we would always stay the same
    You can steal the sun but there's a light you can't replace
    How does it feel to have everything you'll ever need
    And know it's never gonna be, never gonna be enough?

    Reforming
    We're all terminal
    Yeah, reforming

    Did you sell your soul to the headlines?
    We'll never let you take this away from us
    There's no bribe I'd take to betray this trust
    Teach our young why we can't survive?
    Bow down to the hypocrites
    Or the great deceivers of our innocence
    Did you bite your tongue, live another lie?
    The new wave of realistic minds
    What's broken can be fixed
    Me and my brothers know we'll never hide
    We're living in a system on the brink of sacrifice
    And still

    Why are we dying to live?
    A sickness we're living in
    From here to here
    We're like a flickering flame
    We're never once the same
    From here to here

    You can steal the sun
    It wouldn't be enough

    If there was a plan to fail I would've found another way
    To start over again and reset
    I realized that if they told us to change
    Then we would always stay the same
    You can steal the sun but there's a light you can't replace
    How does it feel to have everything you'll ever need
    And know it's never gonna be, never gonna be enough?

    We're all terminal
    Can you feel it?
    We're all terminal
    Can you feel it?
    Can you feel it?
    Reforming

    Did you sell your soul to the headlines?
    Teach our young why we can't survive?
    We're never gonna let you take this away from us
    There's no bribe I'd take to betray this trust
    Or bow down to the hypocrites
    Or the great deceivers of our innocence
    The new wave of realistic minds
    What's broken can be fixed
    We're living in a system on the brink of sacrificing everything

    Why are we dying to live?
    A sickness we're living in
    From here to here

    Why are we dying to live?
    A sickness we're living in
    From here to here
    We're like a flickering flame
    Never once the same
    From here to here

    Let go!
    The grip as you struggle for this
    Like the carrion crows
    It's another vicious cycle
    Yeah, from here to hell Writer/s: Aaron McKenzie, Adam Robert William Savage, Lawrence Floyd Taylor, Matthew John Welsh, Sean Carl Long
