about

Did we do this to you?
They always wanted better for us
We always wanted better for you
Was it to make yourself heard?
Lost en masse of the absurd
Childhoods turned to darkened blurs
Was it to make yourself seen?
Does the needle hold your dreams?


This has gone too far
But it's only going farther
Like screams from crashing cars
Like a message from your father
"It's just defiance", she said
But what have we left for them?
This has gone too far
We are someone's sons and daughters

Way back then, they always used to say
"They're looking up to you, don't misbehave"
I never knew that it was true
I never knew that it was you
Who saw all of the selfish things we did
And though mistakes were marks of pride we hid
Dark circles around your eyes
We cry, we cry
Don't live this lie

This has gone too far
But it's only going farther
Like screams from crashing cars
Like a message from your father
"It's just defiance", she said
But what have we left for them?
This has gone too far
We are someone's sons and daughters

Stumble in on Sunday morning
To hell with loyalty, it's boring
Get back home before the sun
Run from everyone
Where there's a truth, there's a lie before it
We're all missing the trees for the forest
Everyone's got something on the side
I just can't believe my eyes

Stumble in on Sunday morning
To hell with loyalty, it's boring
Get back home before the sun
Run from everyone
Where there's a truth, there's a lie before it
We're all missing the trees for the forest
Everyone's got something on the side
I still can't believe my eyes

This has gone too far
But it's only going farther
Like screams from crashing cars
Like a message from your father
"It's just defiance", she said
But what have we left for them?
This has gone too far
We are someone's sons and daughters
