lyrics

You hate that anyone else exists
I'm finally sick of the intolerance
Someone remind me what is healthy
About that pedestal you're on

You're no exception to the rule
We're all here sharing the same air
Who really cares about the battle
It's a war that no one wins

The nerve to say you're better than
The man who built what you're standing on
There's pride in your intolerance
Say it out loud, does it still make sense?

I don't expect to change your mind
But there's some truth here for your kind
You claim to have all of the answers
Take a look around, you're wrong
You're wrong
It's time, get down
Down, down, off your pedestal

Come, come, come show me the way
Tell me that I'm lost in who I am today
Make sure to ignore every word that I have to say

You've second-guessed yourself too much
To truly trust your righteous crutch
Forget and forgive, live and let live
But maybe that's too much for you

Let me hear your view on pride
And let your ego then decide
You claim to have all of the answers
Take a look around, you're wrong
You're wrong
It's time, get down
Down, down, off your pedestal

Come, come, come show me the way
Tell me that I'm lost in who I am today
Make sure to ignore every word that I have to say

You don't get it, you won't ever get it, no
You don't get it, you won't ever get it, no
You've reached the point of no return

Tell me, tell me
Come share your wisdom with us all
Tell me, tell me
Tell us how we're destined to fall
Tell me, tell me
How to prepare for the curtain call
Tell me just how you'll save us all

Tell me just how you will save us all

Come, come, come show me the way
Tell me that I'm lost in who I am today
Make sure to ignore every word that I have to say
Tell us that we're lost in who we are today
