LyricsEdit

Don't try to take this from me. Don't try to take this from me. Now.
Feels like I'm waking from the dead
And everyone's been waiting on me.
Least now, I'll never have to wonder what it's like
To sleep a year away.
Weren't we indestructible? Thought that we could brave it all.
Never thought that what would take me out was hiding down below.
Lost the battle
Win the war
Bringing my sinking ship back to the shore.
Starting over.
Head back in.
There's a time and a place to die but this ain't it.
If there's a future, we want it now.
Don't try to take this from me. Don't try to take this from me. Now.
Wish I could find a crystal ball...
For the days I feel completely worthless
You know I'd use it all for good,
I would not take it for granted
Instead I have some memories... for the days I don't feel anything.
At the least, they will remind me not to make the same mistakes again.
Lost the battle
Win the war
Bringing my sinking ship back to the shore.
Starting over.
Head back in.
There's a time and a place to die but this ain't it.
If there's a future, we want it now.
There's a time and a place to die.
This ain't it.
If there's a future, we want it now.
