The world was filled with so much promise
And we’d escape; nothing would stop us
I thought we’d make it
I thought we’d make it out of this place

We burned the days and stayed up all night
When we were young and used to live life
Like we would never
Like we would never die
Though we tried
Oh man, how we tried

Is this real or fake?
Now I can’t tell if I’m asleep or awake
I think it’s time to make just one more mistake
Before this jig is up

So this is what they call ‘the good life’
Chasing our ghosts under the bluest skies
It’s getting clearer
It’s getting clearer now
It’s oh so bright
Oh please turn off the light

I’m starting to break
And I don’t know how much more I can take
