lyrics

you're so uninterested
if it doesn't pertain to you
so i don't know why i even bother
i'll just handle it myself

save your breath
we're wasting too much of our time
on something that's so trivial
it isn't that it's cumbersome
it's just that there are lives at stake

you can regurgitate
all the things that you've been fed
so i don't know why i even bother
if your memory's so good

save my breath
you're wasting all my energy
on something you deem meaningless
it isn't that i do not care
it's just that there are lives at stake

the kids
and the gunmen
the kids
and the gunmen

there are no hostages
just unwilling participants
in life there are no second chances
just failing the first time

step back for just a sec
it's not like it's going anywhere
i don't know why we even bother
if it doesn't effect us

save what breath
we're not putting ourselves at risk
i've got too many things at stake
a car, a dog, a house, a job
even if there are those lives at stake

the kids
and the gunmen
the kids
and the gunmen

we are so selfish
that this is how we think
in life there are no second chances
just failing the first time
