lyrics

Hello monster, how have you been?
did you travel very far?
what did it take for you to look like that?
tell me who you think you are
make a face and we can freeze it
hovering above some bar
you look like you know a secret
tell me who you think you are
tell me who you think you are

I scream down at myself
through the ceiling, "hey,
you can't turn every head."
the good times get old then get dead
i will let you lead me in
i will let you lead me in

a table shifts and then a bottle breaks
a conversation goes too far
another pull and I can't hear her say,
"this place is dead, do you have a car?"
tell me who you think you are

I scream down at myself
through the ceiling, "hey,
you can't turn every head."
the good times get old then get dead
i will let you lead me in
i will let you lead me in

you’re not theirs anymore
there’s nothing you can do
when they love you
the way that they love you
were we wrong to think
we deserved the world?

and the jukebox here is empty
and there's nothing you can trust
and someone says, "hey man, I know your face"
tell me who you think i was
tell me who you think i was

I scream down at myself
through the ceiling, "hey,
you can't turn every head."
the good times get old then get dead
i will let you lead me in
i will let you lead me

look at you all soaked through
you're a champion who doesn't know how to win
but if you know a place, let’s begin
i will let you lead me in
i will let you lead me in
