We run to the
Lies that tell us
Everything’s gonna be alright
If we use them
And that sounds stupid
But us teenagers
We don’t really have much foresight
But we know what’s wrong and what’s right.
And everyday we have to fight
And that’s not right.
And partly we’re
Victims of our own minds
But we’re just looking for something
To hide behind.
And we feel like we’re running out of time, already.
Even though we’re only teenagers, heck, we’re still kids.
But we’re running out of time
To live what people say are the
Best days of our lives.
And when you’re running out of time
You’re going to be desperate
You’re going to try everything
Because you’re not going to get the experience again
You won’t get it with the same eyes
So why not try some paradise?
We’re running out of time,
But we’re not.
That’s what the world wants us to believe.
Drinking up our time
Of young wild and free
Because we’re desperate.
And that’s the part we mean
When we say adults ‘just don’t understand’.
And slam the door.
Let me give you an encore,
We are not running out of time.
And it’s time we finally stopped
Drinking up the lies.
