lyrics

Baby, I don't need you anymore.
I just need to spend some time with my best friends,
I guess we’ll start a band.

I wanna wake up on a stranger’s floor
With a sign hanging on the door saying:
“We’re young and poor, too high to die,
We’ll never collide, we’ll lead the blind”.

Baby, you’re too busy to be free.
You work all day, and think all night,
The valium never made it right.

I don’t wanna share you nightmares,
I just wanna sweat and rage on a stage,
Never ever feel my age.

And the ghost of you and me
Is swallowing the dust of an empty bottle,
I’m done with your obsolete illusions.
And I’ll be gone when the morning comes,
I’ll be on top of the scene,
My fingers will bleed in the pit,
I’ll be singing how I sold my soul.

Baby killed the part of me that cares,
The day you tried to lock me up, you broke me up,
In your sentimental cage.

I’d rather be dying on a stranger’s floor,
Surrounded by the young and poor,
And be the one they’re all singing for.

I don’t wanna share you nightmares,
I just wanna sweat and rage on a stage,
Never ever feel my age.

And the ghost of you and me
Is swallowing the dust of an empty bottle,
I’m done with your obsolete illusions.
And I’ll be gone when the morning comes,
I’ll be on top of the scene,
My fingers will bleed in the pit,
I’ll be singing how I sold my soul.

And I’ll be gone, I’ll be moving on,
Until my fingers break,
My legs are beginning to shake,
Oh, I’m done with your obsolete illusions.

And I’ll be gone, I’ll be moving on,
Until my fingers break,
My legs are beginning to shake,
I’ll be singing how I sold my soul.
