lyrics

Ever since I found this pen
I use it again and again
In the meantime I’ll keep looking for my voice
and in the end it’s just pretend
this whole life that we live
we’re just trying to save ourselves

now we’ve outpaced our own minds
and we’re surely in decline
knowing that doesn’t make me
much more comfortable
We’ve all grown up into lies
benzodyazapine eyes
we’ve evolved into machines
that eat drugs and breathe radio waves

But we all die
we all die
but you might as well try
you could get hit by a bus
or struck by lightning
we all die we all die
but it’s good to be alive
our voices will grow stronger
from the songs that we sing

Life is a ticking time bomb
no one knows what’s right or wrong
we’re just drinking on the brink
not believing in anything at all
now we’ve got no place to go
and we’ve got nothing to show
we’re all looking for something
that we’ll never find

I find it hard to believe
what I hear and what I see
a low hum turns into screeching feedback
we’re all the losers in this race
but we won’t die in disgrace
raise your voices and sing along
