lyrics

I think I'm losing my mind. I can't keep up with the time.
Don't let it go or they might never know.
It's fascinating to find, the kids are barely alive.
One look is all that it takes before the camera.
Stop this flashing inside. But there's no place to hide.
You take a breath and they hold another centerfold.
We're our own medicine. We steal from our idols.
We bite the hands that shake us awake.

So we run to the beat, with our hearts in our feet.
Pretty girls, pretty boys, break the laws of gravity.
Watch our lives on the screen, between the lines we never read.
We hold our hands up to the sky, redraw the lines from memory.

Under cover we fight a war where no one is right.
Pull back the sheets and you'll see we fight so pleasantly.
We understate our demands, bury heads in the sand.
We carry seeds of our cultural irrelevance.
We're silent outside, but we still have the drive
and we will never grow old.
We're our own medicine. We steal from our idols.
We bite the hands that shake us awake.

So we run to the beat, with our hearts in our feet.
Pretty girls, pretty boys, break the laws of gravity.
Watch our lives on the screen, between the lines we never read.
We hold our hands up to the sky, redraw the lines from memory.
