Submit Corrections Cancel

It's in the air you breath
and it's also in the water.
it's something you can't see
you've been warned of by you mothers
you've had enough to see
you know enough to see
Join the others
when you could hardly breath
you were wondering why you bothered

And they gave us
seven days
to renounce our wicked ways
to late to make amends
cause we both know how this ends!

So!
Do the right thing!
Do nothing!
WOAHH!
[What will you do when they come for you?]
Just do what's easiest
[What will you do when they come for you?]
i think it's what I read, but I swore he said to me
nine times out of ten you lied to me!
and now after all the conversation
no one will save you now!

We want it!
They got it!
They claim we'll die without it!
But something tells me they are Wrong!

So! What will you do when they call your name and you're
not ready to go!?
everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know!
That you're in too deep and you can quite keep your secrets one and all
We might just make it after all
on our own
we might just make it after all

But we had
one foot on the gas, and one foot in the grave
everyone was laughing when we said we had it made
everyone was laughing when we said we had it made

they gave us seven days
to renounce our wicked ways
too late to make amends
cause we both know how this ends!

started with six or seven moved on to eight on nine
[What will you do when they come for you?]
nobody seemed to notice
nobody seemed to mind
[What will you do when they come for you?]

little miss dismiss lament the radio
I cannot believe you when you tell me what you know-oh-oh-oh
and nothing will be broken if you house was made of stone
but you know, as I do, it will never be a home

We want it!
They got it!
They claim we'll die with out it!
But something tells me they are wrong!

So! What will you do when they call your name and you're
not ready to go!?
everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know!
That you're in too deep and you can quite keep your secrets one and all
We might just make it after all
on our own
we might just make it after all

But we had
one foot on the gas, and one foot in the grave
everyone was laughing when we said we had it made
everyone was laughing when we said we had it made

It's in the air you breath
and it's also in the water.
it's something you can't see
you've been warned of by you mothers
you've had enough to see
you know enough to see
Join the others
when you could hardly breath
you were wondering why you bothered

too late to make amends
cause we both know how this ends!

little miss, dismiss, can't miss, life
tune in the radio
I cannot believe you when you tell me what you know-oh-oh-oh
and nothing will be broken if you house was made of stone
but you know, as I do, it will never be a home

We want it!
They got it!
They claim we'll die with out it!
But something tells me they are wrong!

So! What will you do when they call your name and you're
not ready to go!?
Where everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know!
That you're in too deep and you can quite keep your secrets one and all
We might just make it after all,
On our own
we might just make it after all

But we had
one foot on the gas, and one foot in the grave
everyone was laughing when we said we had it made
everyone was laughing when we said
we had it made.

It's in the air you breath
and it's also in the water.
it's something you can't see
you've been warned of by you mothers
you've had enough to see
you know enough to see
Join the others
when you could hardly breath
you were wondering why you bothered

Too late to make amends
'cause we both know how this ends!

So! What will you do when they call your name and you're
not ready to go!?
Where everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know!
That you're in too deep and you can quite keep your secrets one and all
We might just make it after all,
On our own
we might just make it after all

But we had
one foot on the gas, and one foot in the grave
everyone was laughing when we said we had it made
everyone was laughing when we said
we
had
it

made.
