Lyrics
Breathe, be still, be free
be the anomaly that you deserve to be
bitterness, let it go
for as long as it has you, you're all alone
Youth exudes, this is how it is
ain't a thing stiff gin and cigarettes cant fix
we are the wild ones,
ain't a thing gonna change
young Hellions, liberated,
taking our place

Hindsight can relieve, but it wont set you free
these contemporary lies, are f****** poisoning me
why should we squander, ever-waning youth
on some pseudo-dogma bullshit that they told us in school

Fall, let go, you'll soar
lead the civil war that they cannot ignore
on hypocrisy, running far and wide
for a youth so crass and desensitized
truth exudes, brother can't you see;
you can be anything you've ever wanted to be
and to the wild ones;
live at your own pace
for our true enemy has yet to show it's face
Hindsight can relieve, but it wont set you free
these contemporary lies, are f****** poisoning me
why should we squander, ever-waning youth
on some pseudo-dogma bullshit that they told us in school

All of this, all that I've got -
I'd lay down for my friends
When you choke, brother I stop breathing
and when you fall, you know that I start bleeding out,
beyond all doubt, each day in, each day out
for everything that we're doing now
is a result of what we did back then
old lessons, reinforced, (again and again) [2x]

We are just specks in time
particles lost in a grand design
we all exist, but so few live
burn out in a brilliant blaze
don't fade into an idle haze
we all exist but so few live

(We are the wild ones
forever free, forever young. ) [2x]
