Intro
Come on lover don’t you set me free
The void is endless
I cannot breathe
Don’t chase the fables
Suffocating
What are we here for
Tell me please

Chorus
Are they the lights that we fiend for
The fame that we chase
The love that makes us kill or
The jealousy to blame
We’re going down down down
Lord can we be saved?
We’re going down down down
Can we break the chains?

Verse1
I feel the itch
Underneath my skin
I barely try anymore
‘Cuz we’re never gonna fuckin’ win
Or maybe I tell myself that
So I don’t have to come and face my sins
I really don’t want to come and let him in
But I do
‘Cuz it helps to fill the void
How about you?
Your vices, your decoys
Is it true?
Am I expendable to you
Throw me away once we’re through
Or once we’re done
We’re just ticks on this rock
3rd one from the sun
Sucking up the blood
We do this shit for fun
Parasites of the night
No, your not the only one
We don’t trust each other no way
So we steal and we run
And we take and we plead
And we cry and we’re numb
And we fuck just to feel
Be the bullets to my gun

Chorus
Are they the lights that we fiend for
The fame that we chase
The love that makes us kill or
The jealousy to blame?
We’re going down down down
Lord can we be saved?
We’re going down down down
Can we break the chains?

Verse2
I love the lights, yea
I’ll be honest
I tend to lie
I’ll tell the truth about that, promise
Care about opinions too much
Other times I do not give two fucks
Got no shades of grey, no fiction
Black or white my disposition
Fix your iris to this vision
Open eyelids to my mission
Thought you was
Found out you isnt
First pedestal, now pesant
I reject your classism
I don’t belong
I do not get it
Fit no box, I divergent
Say I’m the one
Don’t think they ready
‘Cuz if you were who you said you were
The newer you would be done too
I don’t believe in fairy tales
I’m the fairest one, no mirror used
I use to but 2 fingers up
But the peace I claimed just got abused
So I put one down
Enemies around
Claimed allegiance
But I’m asking you

Chorus
Are they the lights that we fiend for
The fame that we chase
The love that makes us kill or
The jealousy to blame
We’re going down down down
Lord can we be saved
We’re going down down down
Can we break the chains

Verse2
This girl will use the blade
To break the skin
To feel the pain
To misdirect
Is she insane
Don’t get it yet?
Aren’t we the same?
We just want to see the blood
Hurt each other ‘tll we’re numb
Like we’re better than
Come let it settle in
Doc got the pills
But he don’t got the medicine
Pedalling the fantasy on the television
Explain insanity
I’m feeling fed up
Ok, I’ll fall in line
No answers, not this time
The ignorance and fallacy
Intoxicate my mind
So keep your sober truth
And bitch don’t blow my high

Chorus
Are they the lights that we fiend for
The fame that we chase
The love that makes us kill or
The jealousy to blame
We’re going down down down
Lord can we be saved
We’re going down down down
Can we break the chains
