LyricsEdit

This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone in the violent rhythm
And though the words sound steady something empty with 'em
We say yeah, with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding on to something that's invisible there
Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
Until we get it, forget it, let it all disappear

Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand

This is not what I had planned
Mqdefault-1-

It's out of my control

Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding onto what I haven't got

Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn't so

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I wanna do Is trade this life for something new
Holding onto what I haven't got

What was left when the fire was gone
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it's like moving on
And I don't even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead
So I'm picking up the peices now where to begin?
The hardest part of ending is starting again

All I wanna do is trade this life for something new
Holding onto what I haven't got

This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
(I'm holding onto what I haven't got)
But you listen to the tone in the violent rhythm
And though the words sound steady something's empty within 'em
We say yeah, with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something invisible there
Cause were living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
(Holding onto what I haven't got)
Until we get it, forget it, let it all disappear
