Lyrics

Charlie Scene: Ooh...
Ooh...

J-Dog: Dead in the night, we go into the world unknown, just let us go
I know that I'm breathing slow, inhaling smoke, I just awoke
A bottle of pills I'm choking down with dancing demons all around
But I'm hearing sounds and I know I'm hearing voices now
With all the buildings crashing down, it's Armageddon again
I'll drink the poison from the crown and make a toast to the end
For all the kids and all the ones and even some who've just begun
To feel the pain 'cause they can't stand to stay awake

Danny: I see the streets burn every time I fall asleep
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice that speaks inside of me

Charlie Scene: Ooh...
Ooh...

Charlie Scene: I saw you walk into a room
I saw a face I thought I knew
And all along, it was true
It was me, it wasn't you

I asked myself if it's the truth
A guilty conscience isn't proof?
A fingerprint? Well, what's that do?
'Cause gasoline can burn that too

So hide your knives and save yourself
It's just you, there's no one else
Will I change? The time will tell
Why can't I dream? What is this hell?

So maybe I should stop this time
And draw the line and see the light
But it's too late, I can't this time
I've lost mind, so say goodnight

Danny: I see the streets burn every time I fall asleep
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice that speaks inside of me
I see the trees burn along with all my memories
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice that speaks inside of me

Charlie Scene: Ooh...
Ooh...

Danny: If I lay my head down, would you admire
Charlie Scene: (Ooh...)
Danny: The way I can close my eyes tonight
And burn my conscience for the choir?

Johnny 3 Tears: Who's to judge who's insane?
Watch it all wash away
Save us from what we've made
It doesn't die, it only fades
If I can't feel, there isn't pain
Another day, it's all the same
I always pray I never change
It seems to me we're all to blame
Push your matches, no more rain
Burn this fucking world today

Danny: I see the streets burn every time I fall asleep
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice that speaks inside of me
I see the trees burn along with all my memories
I'm losing all my sanity
I can't hide from the voice that speaks inside of me

Charlie Scene: Ooh...
Ooh...

Original version

The original version of the song has Da Kurlzz singing "Na, na, na/Na, na, na/Na, na, na/Na, na, na, na, na" instead of Charlie singing "Ooh.../Ooh..." However, when Da Kurlzz sings this line a voice modifier is used, making his voice sound very high-pitched like a child's. During Johnny's verse, the beat drops and a drum solo is played behind Johnny's rapping.

Original demo version

The original version of the song had a demo version made, which is the same as the original version. Da Kurlzz sings with his normal voice, with the voice modifying feature dropped. The drum solo in Johnny's verse is replaced with the normal instrument playing behind his rapping. Also, when the song starts, a sort of tribe drum is played.

Demo

The demo of the released version has slight changes made. Da Kurlzz's singing is replaced by Charlie and Danny singing "Ooh.../Ooh...," which is replaced by just Charlie singing "Ooh.../Ooh..." in the released version.
