what happens when, what happens when
you celebrate life instead of death
start measuring success by your own standards
not your friends
there’s a coward inside us all getting so psyched up
staring at the wall
and i don’t know if i can control that son of a bitch at all

you said you wanted to live forever trust me
it’s the world’s most ill-advised endeavor
but if you manage to defy science, retain all your cartilage
and your bones never break please come back for me
and pull me out of the fucking ground

it all comes to you in waves, ones and twos and threes
it all comes to you, it all comes to you in waves

you know i find it so damn sad
when you let your freak flag fly at half mast.
but if everything is gonna be the death of you
whats gonna happen when your finally through

sometimes these names are written on the insides of our hearts forever and sometimes they get scratched out

i know what you said but i don’t wanna feel like a chump no longer
