lyrics

Only a creator can destroy a creation and only a change of heart can kill an expectation. I’ve been away for so long, come back to find out that you’re gone. I wouldn’t change the world for you. We didn’t have faults; every lesson learned another page we wrote. I wouldn’t change the world for you so tell me why you changed? I ain’t got time for your elite or all your small town ways. Trust me, because it’s all just a phase. My persona’s made with my own mind. I think I’ll hold my own, I think I’ll keep what you left behind. I think I’ll hold my own and I will keep what you left, so when I’m dead and gone we didn’t settle for no less. Like we still need you here. I wouldn’t change the world for you. We didn’t have faults; every lesson learned another page we wrote. I wouldn’t change the world for you so tell me why you changed? We’ll load the gun with everything that we hold dear to our heads, pull the trigger and have no regrets in being dead. As they lower our coffins into the holes, all the media can blame us for setting the tone. People live on in our minds and in our hearts, people embodied just for the sake of their art. As they lower our coffins into the holes, all the media can blame us for setting the tone. So take me back to where I used to be, this air is growing stale I can taste it on my tongue. I can’t pretend to be like you. I wouldn’t change the world for you so tell me why you changed. As they lower our coffins into the holes, all the media can blame us for setting the tone. Like we still need you here, like we still need you.
