You’re telling the world
She’s a beautiful girl
In the sun

Remember the song?
Where we said ‘sing along’
Like it had never been done

You’re telling the world
She’s a beautiful girl
This time

But she’s fading away
And I’m trying to say
I’m fine

I didn't think so

You’re telling the world
She’s a beautiful girl
In the sun

Remember the song?
Where we said ‘sing along’
Like it had never been done

You’re telling the world
She’s a beautiful girl
This time

She’s on her knees
And screaming “please
Help, or no one else survives”

Didn’t think so

Who else is lost?
But doesn’t care
If they sleep their way
Through sunny days
Where the kids will always find regret
In packs of gum and cigarettes
Who else is lost?
In I-Don’t-Know-Where
I see myself but no one else
Where the kids will always find regret
In sticks that burn in silhouette
(Woah)

The riot Squad
Rushed this facade
Tonight

They’ve got my hope,
My head, my legs
Tied tight

Did they catch the prank?
In the wine they drank
Before

I was dragged to jail
To carve my tale
Into their bathroom floor

Didn’t think so

Who else is lost?
But doesn’t care
If they sleep their way
Through sunny days
Where the kids will always find regret
In packs of gum and cigarettes
Who else is lost?
In I-Don’t-Know-Where
I see myself but no one else
Where the kids will always find regret
In sticks that burn in silhouette

Maybe it’s not real
Maybe you’re not there
Maybe you’re my friend
Insane and insincerity
Kept alive on clarity
Your vanity, your vanity
Has held you here for years
(Repeat)

Who else is lost?
But doesn’t care
If they sleep their way
Through sunny days
Where the kids will always find regret
In packs of gum and cigarettes
Who else is lost?
In I-Don’t-Know-Where
I see myself but no one else
Where the kids will always find regret
In sticks that burn in silhouette

You’re telling your life
She’d make a beautiful wife
Someday
