One is for envy and one just for spite
The cuts in my heart, they show me your eyes
Don't make it better by twisting knife
Turns all by itself, on to someone else

Your self-liberation, we'll leave this behind
Beyond slings and arrows that rain on our minds
You'll make it better shaking it off
It never mattered anyway

If we don't make it alive, it's a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
And it's ashes to ashes again, should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

The banner you're waving is burning and red
It's blocking the sun light that shines overhead
You against the world, diamonds and pearls
Voices inside you churn, watch the city burn

Your own liberation will leave them behind
All the slings and arrows that rain on your mind
Don't make it better break it 'cause
It never mattered anyway

If we don't make it alive, it's a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
And it's ashes to ashes again, should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

I won't calm down

The banner you're waving is burning and red
You against the world, diamonds and pearls
It never mattered, mattered,
Mattered anyway

If we don't make it alive, it's a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
And it's ashes to ashes again, should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
