Hide with me, under the tarp in your father’s boat
And don’t make a sound, your mother’s callin’ comin’ round.
Climb with me, on the roof, we’re the tyrants now, he calls us down
Your father’s always serious now.

We can play at being broken
We can play at being boys
Young and game to be destroyed
We can play at being broken
We can play at being boys
You can hear it in our voice
We’re growing up to grow apart
We’re growing up to grow apart

You can be the one that I tell all the girls that I loved in the dark
It’ll be a quiet road to break each other’s hearts.

Lie with me
Narrowed eyes, phantom pains, crooked teeth,
We are the Kings, the happiest we’ll ever be.

We can play at being broken
We can play at being boys
Young and game to be destroyed
We can play at being broken
We can play at being boys
You can hear it in our voice
We’re growing up to grow apart
We’re growing up to grow apart
You can be the one that I tell all the girls that I loved in the dark
It’ll be a quiet road to break each other’s hearts.

So tear it off slowly,
A little shock of pain, see another friend, just some kid again,
Forever isn’t always.
We both discover girls
And I forget to be kind, I tell another lie, I’ll tell another lie.
We’re learning to be lonely.  

We’re growing up to grow apart
We’re growing up to grow apart
You can be the one that I tell all the girls that I loved in the dark
It’ll be a quiet road to break  each other’s hearts.

Hop on back and keep it quiet we’re fighting the night
Just until we get out of sight, keep low and watch out for lights
Cold wet grass it keeps us fast we’re running in time,
Tinder hills and wind in our eyes, we’re lost in warm summer nights.

Come break out before the fight starts
Come break out of who you think you are
We’re gonna play it by heart
Come break out I’m in the front yard
Break out of who you wish you were
We’re gonna play it by heart

Hop the fence but keep it quiet we’re fighting the night
Small cuts and bruises don’t mind, old marks from where the blood dried.
We drown our laughs in the planes that pass we’ve worn a straight line
That leads from your house to mine, we’re lost in warm summer nights.

Come break out before the fight starts
Come break out of who you think you are
We’re gonna play it by heart
Come break out I’m in the front yard
Break out of who you wish you were
We’re gonna play it by heart

Real love, blood ties, I was never yours you were never mine.
Tongue tied, four eyes, never got along with the other guys.
Bonfire, switch knives, ready for the cold ready for the fight
Hard luck, hard lives, we were never told it would be alright.

Come break out before the fight starts
Come break out of who you think you are
We’re gonna play it by heart
Come break out I’m in the front yard
Break out of who you wish you were
We’re gonna play it by heart

Put your Raybans on and we’ll bike to go explore the minefields,
You can tell me all your horror stories how bad you really had it in high school.
Throw the ugly sweater party at my place, if yours has been bomb-shelled,
We can try and find a way through the dark by the fire of the landfills.

Wait for the lights to come on, wait for help, and wait for the spark
Are we as strong as our Mothers, did we let the world fall apart.

We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We never worked too hard
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We follow our hearts
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We never try too hard
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We follow our hearts

Wait for the air raids to quiet and ride in the dust over downtown,
Counting to find where you hide, you’re behind what’s left of the playground.

Wait for the lights to come on, wait for help, and wait for the spark
Are we as strong as our Fathers, did we let the world fall apart.

We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We never worked too hard
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We follow our hearts
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We never try too hard
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We follow our hearts

-Instrumental Break-

We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We never worked too hard
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We follow our hearts
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We never try too hard
We’re Middle Class Sweethearts
We follow our hearts

I know I let the place go since you killed me
There’s not a reason for it more than it was easy.
You play at broken you’re the only one who’s eating
Black and white, jagged lines, you can have your black and white life.

I’m not biting,
You’re not a hero, you’re just idolized and always taking sides,
your friends were never mine.
So go and draw the line, raise the curtain, find your light and tell them you were always right,
It’s black and white, you can have your black and white life.

Love faking it, make it for the wild,
Lead em on, lead em on, lead em on, magnetic child,
Love faking it, make it for the wild,
Lead em on, lead em on, lead em on, magnetic child.

Love faking it, make it for the wild,
Lead em on, lead em on, lead em on, magnetic child,
Love faking it, make it for the wild,
Lead em on, lead em on, lead em on, magnetic child.

I shot her dead in the street last night it was a compromise,
Trigger finger and a mind to fight,
I shot her down last night.
I shut her down and I won that fight, cause this is compromise.
This is how you love, you paralyze, I shot her down last night

Maybe you’re my whole life
Maybe we’re the fantasy
Maybe I’m a low life
Maybe you’re my jealousy
Maybe you’re my home life
Maybe you’re my honesty
Maybe if I’m always right,
Maybe then you’ll never leave

I ran her down in the street last night, I’ll have my peace and quiet
Maybe love just takes a certain kind, I’ll be here all night
Razor lips but I know I’m kind this wasn’t on my mind,
Maybe love just takes a certain kind.

Maybe you’re my whole life
Maybe we’re the fantasy
Maybe I’m a low life
Maybe you’re my jealousy
Maybe you’re my home life
Maybe you’re my honesty
Maybe if I’m always right,
Maybe then you’ll never leave.

 

Maybe you’re my whole life
Maybe we’re the fantasy
Maybe I’m a low life
Maybe you’re my jealousy
Maybe you’re my home life
Maybe you’re my honesty
Maybe if I’m always right,
Maybe then you’ll never leave.
