lyrics

You beat your fist against your chest
Afraid the hollow there would crack, at best
Shatter at the worst
A silent burst to announce to your friends
Everything that you resent are all the things you represent
You know you did it, and tonight you will repeat it

We are the ones who lost our way
(We are the ones who knew it all)
We have the names you long to say
(We are the ones you're warned about)
Sullen looks from fiery eyes
(Self-defeated battle cries)
You'll never understand what we are thinking

All we know, and all we yearn
Is to find a place to call our own

She said she'd take you to a place you knew
A place you'd feel alright
Tonight you learn the truth
The dreams, they never work out in real life
'Cause this is what happens when it's too good
And this is what follows open doors
This is what happens when the dreams you want the most become yours

And all those stupid writing tricks
And all those metaphors aside
I only want to be with you
I'm hoping you can save my life
