lyrics

(Verse)
What are we escaping
Life or the fire itself
What are you erasing
By drinking to her health
Matches strike but burn out soon
Unless you’ve got something to set them to
And you don’t
No you don’t

When I was just a young boy
I said I’d never be a tollbooth man
Cause I deserved better
That would never be who I am
Than who am I
Accepting change sitting still
Watching the world go by
Behind the glass
Behind the glass

(Chorus)
Green lights and gates going up
Fake smiles with the change in your cup
But you’ll drink it anyway
Cause I’m afraid it’s all you’ve got and

What has this world come too
When I can’t even make a stand
What has this world come too
When it all falls through my hands
I need a reason, I need a sign

Will you be with me in the end
Will you be with me in the end
Oh you’re all I know

(Verse)
There’s no use in escaping
The fire will burn itself
There’s no use in erasing
She will always have her hell
So take your life
Live it into the night
And be together
Just be together

(Chorus)
Green lights and gates going up
Fake smiles with the change in your cup
But you’ll drink it anyway
Cause I’m afraid it’s all you’ve got and

What has this world come too
When I can’t even make a stand
What has this world come too
When it all falls through my hands
I need a reason, I need a sign

Will you be with me in the end
Will you be with me in the end
Will you be with me in the end
Will you be with me in the end
Oh you’re all I know
