lyrics

You fell apart in the city
Had to escape from it all
Just admit it
Just admit it
You fell into a spiral and now live within it

But you're not looking for pity
You're always lookin' for more
Don't sweat it
Don't forget it
If you can breathe fire, you set your own limits

You're a survivor
And I'm not surprised
You could eat us alive and we'd be grateful

And when the city's laid to waste you'll find your calling
And you can always find the best time to stop talking
And I wish you nothing but the very best in all things
Nothing that a few years of therapy
And the structure of family can't heal
And you can be alone again

I wanna share with you something
I had a vision of light
Don't you fight it
Don't try to hide it
Victory's upon you, the fates have decided

If I don't wake in the morning
And vanish into the night
They don't see it
But I still believe it
You have been the hero we all truly needed

You've got the hunger
To tear us asunder
And eat our reserve of nuclear weapons - whoa!

And when the city's laid to waste you'll find your calling
And you can always find the best time to stop talking
And I wish you nothing but the very best in all things
Nothing that a few years of therapy
And the structure of family can't heal
And you can be alone
All of the people around you are fixin' to fight
But I want to help you get home again.

I can't miss you
As your silhouette burns bright behind the skyline
It might be the last time I can say
I - I'll miss you
And I regret the times that I was quick to anger
Just 'cause I don't understand you, but

Now I - I see you
And if we still maintain our threats to your ascension
We haven't paid attention on the way
I - I need you
And as the city wakes to catch your new horizon
And all the sins we tried to hide away

I could find you
If I decide
All that hides you
Are blinding lights

I catch you through the embers
You can take your time and I won't blame you
The ocean rose to take your heart away
I might not be remembered
But I was there and I could not forget you
The night will still remain a part of me

I thought I saw the future
But every time I thought I had the answers
I focused on the shapes that lie to me
I - I can't stand to lose you
So if your thoughts start holding you to ransom
Take my hand and don't lose sight of me

I could find you
If I decide
All that hides you
Are blinding lights

I could find you
If I decide
All that hides you
Are blinding lights
