Well this town’s on fire and there’s no hope for you left
you’re going under with just the soul of this ship
you cannot float, you cannot swim, you’ve lost all control again
and there’s no way that you’ll be getting out alive
When I met you I was young and I thought love would be enough
the truth I’ve learned is, sometimes, people just give up
we cannot write, we cannot lie, we’ve both tried to many times
and there’s no reason we can’t make it out alive.
So don’t you get stuck, just get out of this
‘cause you don’t wanna’ do like your father did
and his father did before - you’re just a new man at the door
with a higher priced cup of coffee, you should go
The doors are never locked, and about the past everybody talks
there’s a world so different from the one you’ve been taught
you don’t have to settle to settle down
there’s a place that wants you out
and there’s no reason you can’t make it out alive (x2)
So don’t you get stuck just get out of this
‘cause you don’t wanna’ do like your mother did
and her mother did before - the new rain of an old storm
just a higher rise to the water line, you should go.
The scary part it seems is that the people all are me
and the world I’ve left is just the world it’s gonna be.
I cannot mind if I cannot find a better place to waste my time
who was I to think that I’d make it out alive?
