lyrics

Verse 1:
Caught the faintest scent of bleeding out, turned her head around, if she can do it, so can they.
Played upon each other's inner fears.
If this were real, well we'd be right in a fucking mess.
But around these parts, we've been before, this used to be so much fun before.
But we got lost quite awhile ago, this instability keeps showing up without a reason.

Those who deceive, deceive their own.
Those who perceive, turn on their own.

Verse 2:
She's decided that she's coming home, placed her head upon the fire that has left her cold.
What's the matter with a little soul, it isn't like we've got a one way ticket you know, you know.
This is something that's been done before, we call infinity original and praise it's coming.
This is always what you've wanted right, this is always what you've wanted right?

Chorus:
Don't you let them see you on fire now.
Don't you let them turn around and wreck it all.
Don't you let them focus on your weakness.
Back down on yourself.

Verse 3:
Now the time has come to run and hide, we lost the feeling so we move along right down the path.
So their hoping that it's minimal, anything else is equitable.
You wanna spell it out in bloodstains? She's got a question so you answer that with progress.
Now we're living like some animals.
Some things will never get solved.


Chorus:
Don't you let them see you on fire now.
Don't you let them turn around and wreck it all.
Don't you let them focus on your weakness.
Back down on yourself.

Bridge:
What we know is what we see.
Letting this all out to sea.
Blazing with the fire now.
Don't you know what this has done?
What we know is what we see.
Letting this all out to sea.
Blazing with the fire now.
Don't you know what this has done?


Chorus:
Don't you let them see you on fire now.
Don't you let them turn around and wreck it all.
Don't you let them focus on your weakness.
Don't you let them see you on fire now.
Don't you let them turn around and wreck it all.
Don't you let them focus on your weakness.
Back down on yourself
