Who will remember me when I’m gone?
 With these walls closing in, I’d say that it won’t be long 
Pages balled up on the floor
 Not a single line worthy of anyone singing along

 I’d rather cannonballs tore me asunder
 Than let this treacherous sea pull me under 
I’ve got no time left for love keeping the wolves at bay
 (I’ve got nothing left to say) 

My mind’s a pitch black parking lot and I can’t drive away
 I’ve let the cold, hard truths of the world lead me astray

 Alarm clocks are ringing in my bones
 And the easy way out has been boarded shut long ago 
 I’m tired of staring at my phone
 And this lack of inspiration is seriously getting old 

I’d rather pocket knives cut me to ribbons
 Than have my living room kill my ambitions 
I grind my teeth at the thought of dying all alone
 (And I’m never coming home)

 My mind’s a pitch black parking lot and I can’t drive away 
I’ve let the cold, hard truths of the world lead me astray
 Let me lose this anxiety, no good can come of it
 I won’t tell anyone, ’cause no-one gives a shit 
I used to be so driven but I lost that feeling

 My mind’s a pitch black parking lot and I can’t drive away 
I’ve let the cold, hard truths of the world lead me astray 
Let me lose this anxiety, no good can come of it 
I won’t tell anyone, ’cause no-one gives a shit
 I used to be so driven, I lost that feeling

Pretty girl from the radio
 Bleeding out on the bathroom floor again 
As if all the hearts you stole never mattered in the end
 She lives for the weekend Just so that she won’t have to survive for too long
 Drunken tears on my shoulder
 Like the best part of a sad song

 Then she falls asleep in my arms 
 With the taste of alcohol on her tongue 
 Things are bad enough as they are 
 Without whispers of love from the edge of a bar
 Hold on tight, my damaged girl

 I know that there’s nothing
 Nothing that I could say, but I don’t give a damn
 I know I’m not the one that she needs 
But tonight let’s pretend that I am
 Times are hard and they’re getting tougher 
And your demons are clawing away at your brain 
You lost faith in the things that you love
 ’Cause they come to an end, all the same

 Then she falls asleep in my arms 
With the taste of alcohol on her tongue 
Things are bad enough as they are 
 Without whispers of love from the edge of a bar 
Hold on tight, my damaged girl

 Put out your cigarette and let’s go inside 
By the look in your eyes there’s something on your mind
 And I don’t really care where we end up at all 
’Cause the night just got younger since you came along 
 And your self-destruction’s put on hold for tonight 

Then she falls asleep in my arms 
 With the taste of alcohol on her tongue 
 Things are bad enough as they are 
 Without whispers of love from the edge of a bar
 Hold on tight, my damaged girl

I guess my time has come
 Yeah, the time has come again 
I should hold on to something 
But it wouldn’t be much help
 My scars are cracking open
 And it’s pouring out again
 Insanity is calling
 Like a long lost friend
 
Lost control, drive myself up the wall
 No escape, no matter how I crawl 
 Here goes everything

 Temporary high
 Crashing down tonight 

I guess I never listen
 But I will pay the price, my friend
 Yeah, I just keep pretending
 Until it starts over again
 I get so tired this dance
 Left with a mind that’s broken 
I don’t see one familiar face
 I wanna crack my cranium open
 Abandon ship and fuck the world
 This scream just dying to be heard 
 My lungs collapse from all this breathing

 Temporary high
 Crashing down tonight

I’m so scared that I will mess this up
 The only dream I have is fading fast 
Howling engines pass us in the night 
Is this thing built to last? 

Speeding 
 A million miles an hour 
 We are highway rats
 Bleeding hearts all start to clot, my baby
 Highway rats 

 Cut these strings and wave goodbye to all
 Here come the demons, son, just move along
 White hot concrete in the summer sun 
Watch as these walls, they crack
 Just don’t look back
 I’ve got you by my side 

Speeding 
A million miles an hour 
 We are highway rats 
Bleeding hearts all start to clot, my baby
 Highway rats 

 Wake me 
When it’s my turn at the wheel 
 Shut your eyes and dream 
I know just how you feel 

I’ll learn my lesson, someday I’ll be fine 
I just need to find my own way in this life 

I’ve got you by my side 

Speeding 
 A million miles an hour 
 We are highway rats
 Bleeding hearts all start to clot, my baby
 Highway rats

I stayed up all night just to find you there 
 With your eyes shining on some other guy 
I put on the right shirt, ripped holes in my jeans
 But if you don’t want me then do as you please 
I’ll be on my way may I rest in peace 

 I should’ve gone home
 Should’ve left well enough alone
 But I want so much more than I can have
 I wanted to see you, I just had to know
 If the words that you whispered were part of the show
 It’s quite obvious that I should go

 There’s no remedy for guys like me
 We crash and burn so horribly
 The same boring story on and on
 Yet tonight your eyes, they burn like stars
 Like flickering lights on the boulevard
 Though I taste the lies upon your tongue 

I can’t believe
 I let myself believe it one more time 
One more time
 One more night 

I know I’ll never be 
All the things that you are to me
 And kisses they don’t mean anything 
So blame it on the alcohol
 All the bullet holes in my bedroom wall
 And the way that you played my favorite song 

I can’t believe
 I let myself believe it one more time
 One more time
 One more night 
 I stayed up all night just to find you there 
 With your eyes shining on some other guy 
I’ve got a ride home, I can’t to leave
 This party is over, it’s all make believe
 Your words and the nasty scars they leave
