lyrics

FOR A LONG TIME WE WERE COASTING ON FUMES / IT DIDN'T MATTER / WE WERE GLUED TO THE VIEW / OUT FROM THE FRONTLINES WITH NOTHING TO LOSE / THE WORLD GOT LONGER / READ AN AUTHOR / SHE WAS BORN IN THE SKY / DIED NOT LONG AFTER / IN THE CONTEXT OF TIME / BUT IN THE MIDDLE SHE HAD A BEAUTIFUL MIND / AND IT SPILLED OVER / WILL YOU SHINE WHEN YOU GET UP TO FIGHT / WOULD YOU WIN FASTER BY DIMMING YOUR LIGHTS / WE'LL ALL GET SMALLER TIL WE ALL DISAPPEAR / IF WE HIDE HOW WE'RE BRIGHT / OUT OF SOME DISTANT FEAR / WE'RE ALWAYS SINKING / SEPARATE AND SORE / BUT DEEP SEA MOUNTAINS / HOW WERE THEY FORMED / AND DO THEY TOO START TO DIE FROM THE MOMENT THEY'RE BORN / THE WORLD IS CHANGING / ALWAYS HAS BEEN / WILL YOU WILL YOU SHINE WHEN YOU GET UP TO FIGHT / WOULD YOU WIN FASTER BY DIMMING YOUR LIGHTS / WE'LL ALL GET SMALLER TIL WE ALL DISAPPEAR / IF WE HIDE HOW WE'RE BRIGHT / OUT OF SOME BACKWARDS FEAR / WE'LL HIDE HOW WE'RE BRIGHT BUT IT'LL JUST BE FROM FEAR / WE NEED YOU'RE CRITICAL BRAIN / YOUR CLEVER EYEBALL / YOUR LOVE FOR THE RAIN / WE'VE GOT A LIFETIME FOR PUSHING BACK AGAINST PAIN / IF SOMETHING'S PRETTY / LET IT BE PRETTY
