lyrics

This was all a joke
All a dream
A phase
A hoax
All a waste of everyone's time
I'm taking the hit
This failure's mine
Nobody's pulling strings with fate or luck
It's no one else's fault we're fucked
So go on and strut out there
Unprepared
With no idea
You should be scared
I guess I'm sorry

Duck and cover your eyes
We're going down
Keep your hands to yourself
Let it drown

Laughing by the bar
On your couch
And in my car
It's all that sweet and beautiful stuff
That makes this part
So weird and rough
So let the teenage sages
Sing their songs
Pretend it's wisdom
Sing along
I'll give 'em this:
I'm not unaware
They left out the verse
Where life is fair
Nobody bought it

Duck and cover your eyes
We're going down
Keep your hands to yourself
Let it drown
That's the last one they get
At our expense
Yeah, I know we suck at life
We suck at love
We suck at self-defense

You took everything
You took everything
While I waited
And waited

This was all a joke
All a dream
A phase
A hoax
All a waste of everyone's time
I'm taking the hit
This failure's mine
Nobody's pulling strings with fate or luck
It's no one else's fault we're fucked
So go on and strut out there
Unprepared
With no idea
You should be scared
I guess I'm sorry

Duck and cover your eyes
We're going down
Keep your hands to yourself
Let it drown
That's the last one they get
At our expense
Yeah, I know we suck at life
We suck at love
We suck at self-defense

Duck and cover your eyes
