lyrics

I watch the cars in front of us
just dying for something to do
but I wait our turn to move
while the trees explode in bloom
the fireworks fade soon
and the tv snow falls down

I'll fall fast asleep to last year's shows
written beneath my eyes
I'll stay up all week watch the screen glow
and never leave my room
someone shake me please, just tell me to breathe
then leave me the hell alone
and lately I wonder why the sound of the phone,
makes me want to die

And anyways it's not like you care anymore
so I've got what I had before
You're just another, You're just another
Face in this crowd
And anyways it's not like you care anymore
so I've got what I had before
You're just another, You're just another
you're just another nerve

Knives drill through my teeth and in my gums
bleeding and numb and dying
the color drains my cheeks and makes the whole world look
a little redder
and underneath the sun my limbs grow weak
my eyelids fly and shudder
it's the breath I feel in me down in my lungs
but no words come

shows
written beneath my eyes
I'll stay up all week watch the screen glow
and never leave my room
someone shake me please, just tell me to breathe
then leave me the hell alone
and lately I wonder why the sound of the phone,
makes me want to die

And anyways it's not like you care anymore
so I've got what I had before
You're just another, You're just another
Face in this crowd
And anyways it's not like you care anymore
so I've got what I had before
You're just another, You're just another
you're just another nerve

'cause I'm scared of hearing your voice now
and I see your face in every nameless crowd
and I don't know how to defend
myself when it's do or die and I haven't felt alive till now
if you're afraid of me then you should know
that I'm just another coward
too afraid to throw your things away
these taped up boxes count the days
that we won't wake up face to face
and everything is wonderful
until it's not but who thinks about that

we grow up too fast
we grow up too fast
we grow up too fast
