i think about it every day. i think about it every day.
i think about it every night, when he's holding you tight
and saying every thing will be okay
and everything will be okay, but it'll never be all right.

when it all goes tumbling down, stumbling 'round, off the edge
we'll say our last goodbyes.

i wish i knew what to do, i wish i could know what to do
cuz i know something you don't, god i wish that i had some fucking foresight
but it'll be all right

or it won't.
maybe we're all doomed.
maybe we've been doomed all along,
waiting for the moment i'd arrive
and push the button,
push that big, red button.

there were times in our lives when our lights got so bright
that i thought we'd just burn out, but it turned out that we'd just die
there were days in our malaise where we blazed through the haze,
it took our hearts and tore them up, it hurt enough to tear you away.
for years i wished that you had stayed.

and when it all goes tumbling down, stumbling 'round, off the edge,
we'll say our last goodbyes.
and when our story finally ends, we'll pretend, oh we'll pretend
that everything's all right.
