Everybody's watching through the smoke and lies
What motivates our any motion?
And everybody's reasons for locking up inside
The storyline is nothing still you listen
And you don't want to be perfect
You just want to be the same
But all these lights tonight just complicate it
And hold you down now

So tell me
What are you waiting for?
Only you can make that change in you now
And life it's hard enough
Without carrying all of that old pain around

And those who want to hold you
You'll push them all away
And you'll wonder how they want you when you're obviously broken
And for those who leave you empty
You'll hold a special place
And you'll want that perfect blackout
You'll want that lonely cage
And you don't want to be perfect
You just want to be the same
But all these lies tonight just complicate it
And hold you down now

So tell me
What are you waiting for?
Only you can make that change in you now
And life it's hard enough
Without carrying all of that old pain around

Now why don't you just let go?
Why don't you try to fly?
The moments wide open why don't you try to fly?

And you're always complicated you're always on my mind so now tell me
And you're always complicated you're always on my mind so now tell me
Why don't you try to fly?
Why don't you try to fly?
