HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE LOOKED TO THE SKY FOLLOWING AN ENDLESS WIRE

THE FEVER IS STRONG WHEN IT RUNS IN YOUR BLOOD AND THE VAIN GET HIGHER AND HIGHER


HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE LOOKED TO THE SKY AND ASKED THE STARS ABOUT LIFE

YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR FOR THE LINES TO APPEAR IN THE FACE BEHIND YOUR EYES


OH NO, HMM HMM OOH OOH OOH


AND THEN YOU GAINED WEIGHT AND SO YOU STARVED YOURSELF

AND NOW YOU SAY IT HURTS TO RUN

YOUR SOCIAL SCENE'S A COMPUTER SCREEN

FULL OF PILLS TO KEEP YOU NUMB

YOU WORK A JOB DEEPER IN DEBT

YOU SAY YOUR LIFE'S BIGGEST REGRET 

IS THAT YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS

NO YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS


HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE LOOKED TO THE SKY ONLY TO BE PARALYZED

YOU'RE TAKING SHOTS AT YOURSELF BEFORE ANYONE ELSE SEES THE FEAR YOU'RE TRYING TO DISGUISE


HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE LOOKED TO THE SKY AND FIND OURSELVES FALLING IN LOVE

YOU'RE CLENCHING YOUR TEETH AND REMEMBER TO BREATHE BUT YOU CAN'T PUSH THE AIR FROM YOUR LUNGS


OH NO, HMM HMM, OOH OOH OOH


I WANNA PLAY GUITAR AND SERENADE TO YOU

OVERCOME APPRENSITY

TEACH YOU TO SING A SONG OR TWO

AND PUSH YOUR VOICE AND SING IT FREE 

YOU'RE FEELING LOST, LOST BETWEEN

THE MIDDLE OF RECURRING DREAMS

AND YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS

NO YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS


RUNNING OUT OF OPTIONS

HOLDING ON TO KEEP US YOUNG

DESPERATE NIGHTS BETWEEN THE SHEETS

YOU FEEL THERE'S NO WHERE TO RUN


THE HOURS PASS DAY BY DAY

WHAT THE HELL?  IT'S GOTTA CHANGE

BECAUSE YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS

NO YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS

NO YOU DON'T GET ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS
