Against The Current - In Our Bones Lyrics






Running With The Wild Things

Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh
Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh

Oo they don't hear us
Read us bedtime stories from their textbooks
Oo try to reign us in
Blind to our intelligence

Standardization of the masses
Give us a number fail or pass us
Education, manipulation
Decide our fate but never ask us

We're about to boil over
You can't keep us down forever

We got too big for the cage you locked us up in
Let's mark this down as the day that we start something
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
Tearin' through the streets
Running with the wild things

Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh
Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh

Hey, why you waitin'?
Quit cravin' notches to count the days 'cause
They're losing power
See 'em growing weaker by the hour

We're about to boil over
You can't keep us down forever

We got too big for the cage you locked us up in
Let's mark this down as the day that we start something
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
Tearin' through the streets
Running with the wild things

Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh
Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh

Standardization of the masses
Give us a number fail or pass us
Standardization of the masses
Give us a number fail or pass us
Education, manipulation
Decide our fate but never ask us
Education, manipulation
Decide our fate but never ask us
Never ask us, never ask us

We got too big for the cage you locked us up in
Let's mark this down as the day that we start something
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
Tearin' through the streets
Running with the wild things

Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh
Oo-ooh
Ooo-ooo-oh, ooo-ooo-oh

Forget Me Now

Hey
Dear whoever, do you remember?
It's me old whatshername
Can't believe it you ain't dreamin'
I don't look quite the same

But history repeats itself
I kept making a scene
I kept raising hell
Now they call me a queen
And you're under my spell
So tell me how does it feel?
Well...

I'm looking down from the skyline
Dancing on the moonlight
Can you see my name in the stars?
Yeah, I bet you won't forget me now
My voice on the air waves
It's echoing louder and louder
I bet you won't forget me now
I bet you won't forget me now

Hey whoever it's been forever
I know you know my name
I heard ya still tryna steal my throne
I guess some things never change

Always knew I'd make it out
Live a life you dream about
Now the world's in my hands
According to plan

I'm looking down from the skyline
Dancing on the moonlight
Can you see my name in the stars?
Yeah, I bet you won't forget me now
My voice on the air waves
It's echoing louder and louder
I bet you won't forget me now
I bet you won't forget me now

Said you were gonna run this town
Now you get high and just drive around
It didn't happen like you thought it would, yeah
Hit me up like, "hope you're good"
And "can you put me on the list tonight?"
And "by the way I got this clothing line"
Trying to talk like we're old friends
But, you don't even know who I am
Who I am, who I am

I'm looking down from the skyline
Dancing on the moonlight
Can you see my name in the stars
Yeah, I bet you won't forget me now
My voice on the air waves
It's echoing louder and louder
I bet you won't forget me now
I bet you won't forget me now

I bet you won't forget me now
I bet you won't forget me now
I bet you won't

Chasing Ghosts

We used to have a light
Now it's too dark to shine
Now we're just passing by
Two shipwrecks in the night

Remember when we met, yeah, I know I was mean
Stones shirt, black boots and black jeans
And you were such a mess
I thought it was sweet
But that night still haunts my dreams

[Chorus:]
I won't keep chasing ghosts
I need somebody I can hold
Gave you my heart and soul
Thought I was chasing love
I was only chasing a ghost

TV light, two bodies intertwined
I guess we tempted fate always so far away

Remember when we met, yeah, I know I was mean
Stones shirt, black boots and black jeans
And you were such a mess
I thought it was sweet
But that night still haunts my dreams

[Chorus]

Remember when you left, yeah, I thought I was mean
Stones shirt, black boots and everything
I let you fool me twice, shame on me
But that night still haunts my dreams

[Chorus]

One More Weekend

It's been a minute
Everything's the same but different
Everyone moved on or stayed too long
Doing the same things

Can't help but miss it
Thought I might come back and visit you
And I moved on but we've still got
A whole lot of history

Is it too late?
I know we went separate ways
But I just wanted to say
Hey

Yo, I'm back home for the weekend
Called you up but you were sleeping
I wanna do those things we used to do
Back when we ran these neighbourhood streets
Wrote our names in the wet cement
We can't go back again
But we can pretend for one more weekend
One more weekend

We said forever
Never thought our time together'd ever stop
But it did and we're not kids anymore

I've got our photos in a drawer
People don't keep those anymore
But I did, can't get rid of who we were before

Is it too late?
I know we went separate ways
But I just wanted to say
Hey

Yo, I'm back home for the weekend
Called you up but you were sleeping
I wanna do those things we used to do
Back when we ran these neighbourhood streets
Wrote our names in the wet cement
We can't go back again
But we can pretend for one more weekend
One more weekend

Monday will wash away the fantasies
We'll have to go back and face reality
But we've got forever between now and then
We can pretend

Yo, I'm back home for the weekend
Called you up but you were sleeping
I wanna do those things we used to do
Back when we ran these neighbourhood streets
Wrote our names in the wet cement
We can't go back again
But we can pretend for one more weekend
One more weekend
We can pretend for one more weekend
One more weekend
One more weekend
One more weekend, yeah

Young & Relentless

Sleepless night
Bloodshot morning
Runway lights
London calling

We could be any place, any time, in any moment
It's a race to the line
Breakaway from the life that they sold ya
Pack a bag, say goodbye
All we know is go, go, go
All we know is go, go, go

We got, we got the life unbelievable
Sleep when we're dead
Live like we're invincible, ohh-oh-oh-ohh
We're young and relentless
G-g-g-get up, get out your mind 'cause you never know
No way to hit rewind once your eyes close, ohh-oh-oh-ohh
We're young and relentless
We go, go, go
We go, go, go

Jetlag daydream
No permanent address
It's like a memory fading
Of a New York sunset
Yeah, we could be any place, any time, in any moment
It's a race to the line
Break away from the life that they sold ya
Pack a bag, say goodbye
All we know is go, go, go
All we know is go, go, go

We got, we got the life unbelievable
Sleep when we're dead
Live like we're invincible, ohh-oh-oh-ohh
We're young and relentless
G-g-g-get up, get out your mind 'cause you never know
No way to hit rewind once your eyes close, ohh-oh-oh-ohh
We're young and relentless
We go, go, go
We go, go, go

All we know is go, go, go
All we know is go, go, go

We got, we got the life unbelievable
Sleep when we're dead
Live like we're invincible, ohh-oh-oh-ohh
We're young and relentless
G-g-g-get up, get out your mind 'cause you never know
No way to hit rewind once your eyes close, ohh-oh-oh-ohh
We're young and relentless
We go, go, go
We go, go, go

Brighter

It's a brand new day, it's never too late to start
Can't live this life with an empty heart

Every single time that we lay it on the line
It's a roller coaster ride for one
When you know it's do or die and you're running out of time
We gotta give it all we've got
All we've got

I want something more, a life worth fighting for
I don't need a reason, to set the world on fire
And burn a little bit brighter now
There's something beautiful hiding in the shadows
So set the world on fire
Let's burn a little bit brighter now

Sometimes we gotta risk it all to chase a dream
It's a dive in head first, all-or-nothing kind of thing

Every single time that we lay it on the line
It's a roller coaster ride for one
When you know it's do or die and you're running out of time
We gotta give it all we've got

I want something more, a life worth fighting for
I don't need a reason, to set the world on fire
And burn a little bit brighter now
There's something beautiful hiding in the shadows
So set the world on fire
Let's burn a little bit brighter now

Can't stand by and wait like the others
I'm front line and won't run for cover
Head held high cause I'm burning brighter
Yeah I'm burning brighter

Can't stand by and wait like the others
I'm front line and won't run for cover
Head held high cause I'm burning brighter

I want something more, a life worth fighting for
I don't need a reason, to set the world on fire
And burn a little bit brighter now
There's something beautiful hiding in the shadows
So set the world on fire
Lets burn a little bit brighter now
It's a brand new day, it's never too late to start

Wasteland

Have I lost my mind?
Is this paradise?
Or a darker side?
Candy coated lips
You're the sweetest kiss
But a bad trip

Changing faces
Know the name but I just can't place it
Slurring phrases
Took a step but I can't retrace it
You tell me, "Take this"
But I don't wanna wake up in your

Wasteland
Your wasteland
(I don't wanna wake up in your)
Wasteland
Your wasteland
(No, I don't wanna wake up in your)

Twisted fantasy
In your ecstasy
You're no good for me
Just behind the wall
It's not a dream at all
It's a free fall

Changing faces
Know the name but I just can't place it
Slurring phrases
Took a step but I can't retrace it
You tell me, "Take this"
But I don't wanna wake up in your

Wasteland
Your wasteland
(I don't wanna wake up in your)
Wasteland
Your wasteland
(No, I don't wanna wake up in your)

I don't wanna wake up in your

Changing faces
Slurring phrases
Nothing changes
In your waste-
I don't wanna wake up in your

Wasteland
Your wasteland
(I don't wanna wake up in your)
Wasteland
Your wasteland
(No, I don't wanna wake up in your wasteland)

Changing faces
(In your wasteland)
Slurring phrases
(I don't wanna wake up in your)
Nothing changes
In your waste-
I don't wanna wake up

Blood Like Gasoline

You're so bad for me
And I know it
But here I am in your arms
And, yeah, we're quiet like a secret
But it's just the calm before the storm

Cause baby, your lips like fire
And my blood like gasoline
When we're striking
Burning up everything
Smoke is rising
It's getting hard to breathe
Your lips like fire

Ignite my gasoline
My blood like gasoline

Your voice follows like an echo
Won't someone wake me from this dream
The bluest skies turn to black clouds
And the wind is drowning out my screams

Cause baby, your lips like fire
And my blood like gasoline
When we're striking
Burning up everything
Smoke is rising
It's getting hard to breathe
Your lips like fire

Ignite my gasoline
My blood like gasoline
Ignite my gasoline
My blood like gasoline

Late at night, telling me "if I was a rose
You'll be the thorns and you won't get better"
But I say "baby, you're more like a stab"
Stand in the rain cause I like the weather
Even though when we're done know I've left these ashes

Baby those lips like fire
My blood like gasoline
Sparked the fire
That burned down everything

Lips like fire
And my blood like gasoline
When we're striking
Burning up everything
Smoke is rising
It's getting hard to breathe
Your lips like fire

Ignite my gasoline
My blood like gasoline
Ignite my gasoline

Cause baby your lips like fire
Left burns all over me

Roses

Waited all night for you to come home
I always hated sleeping alone
Watching the roses wither away
Wishing my memories would die out the same
I waited all night, yeah, you never came

I miss the long nights under street lights
When our hearts were made of gold
I miss the feeling that we had then
We were never growing old
Yeah, I miss it all
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh
Yeah, I miss it all
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh

Everyone's trying to help me move on
They say it gets better in the long run
You could say that I've a couple good days
But nobody's eyes shine quite the same way
I waited all night, yeah, you never came

I miss the long nights under street lights
When our hearts were made of gold
I miss the feeling that we had then
We were never growing old
Yeah, I miss it all
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh
Yeah, I miss it all
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh

Waited all night for you to come home
I always hated sleeping alone
I hope that the lipstick I left on your face
Stays red like the roses I laid on your grave

I miss the long nights under street lights
When our hearts were made of gold
I miss the feeling that we had then
We were never growing old
Yeah, I miss it all
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh
Yeah, I miss it all
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh

Demons

I read your veins like lines on a map
But I got no destination
See the smoke and signals rise from my breath
And the flames are cold and patient
I filled you with a wonderland born of my imagination
And go, I can't

Cause my demons tied me down
With silk chains wrapped around my soul
It seems so obvious that I should put an end to this
But demons take control
Like dark sins in my soul
I know it seems so obvious that I should put an end to this
Oh, no, they're just demons

I'm pushing through the blood in you
To heal where you've been hurting
And I'm so numb, I don't feel it run
When it stains the walls around me
I filled the room with shades of you
Drawn in my imagination
And go, I can't

Cause my demons tied me down
With silk chains wrapped around my soul
It seems so obvious that I should put an end to this
But demons take control
Like dark sins in my soul
I know it seems so obvious that I should put an end to this
Oh, no, they're just demons
They're just demons

They're just demons
They're just demons
Staring up the road
Sick of the darkness and the cold
The chains are wearing thin
Oh, I'm fighting for us both
I built this wonderland
Drenched in the colours of your skin
And go, I can't

Cause my demons tied me down
But silk chains are broken now
It seems so obvious that I should put an end to this
But demons take control
Like dark sins in my soul
I know it seems so obvious that I should put an end to this
Oh, no, they're just demons
They're just demons

Steal The Night

We're gonna steal the night
Got no time to borrow
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow

Need a fix, need a change
When the days feel like they're daisy-chained together
Cause it all feels the same
When the knot in me just stretches on forever

Only got T minus 24 hours
Gonna make you mine, gonna make this ours

We're gonna steal the night
Got no time to borrow
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow
We're gonna steal the night
Let our voices echo
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow

Live it here, live it now
Cause I don't want to waste another minute
Make a move, scream it out
Cause it's our world and they're just living in it

Only got T minus 24 hours
Gonna make you mine, gonna make this ours

We're gonna steal the night
Got no time to borrow
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow
We're gonna steal the night
Let our voices echo
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow

Anything to break the pace
Find me dancing through the rain
Need a rush to fill the space
Adrenaline inside my veins

We're gonna steal the night
Got no time to borrow
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow
We're gonna steal the night
Let our voices echo
We don't wanna wake up, wake up
I love tomorrow

Zombie

One, two, three, four

I hope you know that I'm trying
To build a life that I can love
I hope I never stop dreaming
I need something I believe in

I dip this world in black and white
Monochrome igniting
I'm gonna be a neon sign
Let the ship rest cause I'm lighting up the city

I don't ever wanna wake up wondering
Where the youth have gone
Not gonna be another sell out zombie
Wondering what went wrong
I'll never give in
I'll never back down
I'll never be another zombie in a life that's not my own

I don't wanna be nothing, no
There's nothing that scares me more
To live a life without meaning
Where I'm screaming
Behind close doors

I dip this world in black and white
Monochrome igniting
And I'm gonna be the brightest light
That anyone has ever seen
Dare you to look at me

I don't ever wanna wake up wondering
Where the youth have gone
Not gonna be another sell out zombie
Wondering what went wrong
I'll never give in
I'll never back down
I'll never be another zombie in a life that's not my own

Zombie, zombie, zombie, zombie
Zombie, zombie, zombie

Please don't ever let me be
Another one of those de-e-ad zombies

Zombie, zombie, yeah

I don't ever wanna wake up wondering
Where the youth have gone
Not gonna be another sell out zombie
Wondering what went wrong
I'll never give in
I'll never back down
I'll never be another zombie in a life that's not my own

Zombie, zombie, zombie, zombie
