lyrics

I'll drive, I'll drive, I'll drive
I'll drive while you sleep
I'll try, I'll try, I'll try
I'll try while you're weak
I'll fly, I'll fly, I'll fly
With your weight on my wings
I'll cry, I'll cry, I'll cry
To give you something to sing
I'll die, I'll die, I'll die
Before you give me something.

And you'll run from all the right answers
And you'll blow all of your chances
And you'll turn into the monster you always were underneath,
You'll turn into the monster you always were underneath.

I defy, I defy, I defy
I defy your deceit
The lie, the lie,
The lie is mine if I let it breathe
I'll drive, I'll drive, drive
But I'll never leave
I'll die, I'll die, I'll die
And you're coming with me
I'll drive, I'll drive, I'll drive
I'll drive while you sleep.

And we'll run from all the right answers
And we'll blow all of our chances
And we'll turn into the monsters we always were underneath
And we'll turn into the monsters
And we'll burn down like a candle
That forgot how fast flame travels
And we'll turn into the monsters we always were underneath
And we'll turn into the monsters.
