lyrics

Center stage, all the rage
Dim the lights, the joke's on you
Imagine all the things they put you through
Crack all your eggs in the same empty basket.
Just look at the mess you've made.

You'll never be good enough.
You'll never go far enough.
Some of us weren't meant to leave.
That's what the headlines say.

You'll never be good enough.
You'll never break through enough.
Don't believe everything you read.
That's what the headlines say to me.

I remember having faith
Try to think a little clearer
Before every word became an open sore
Always counting down the days
Will I ever get a sign?
I throw my hands up at the sky

If I could swallow another winter
I just might make it out alive
Nowhere to go but up

Sometimes I feel like falling
Take a breath, we'll scream up at the sky
Sometimes I feel like dying
But I keep trying to ignore the headlines

Ignore the headlines

I think I'm drowning
I swore I'd never get in over my head
Throw me a lifeline, I swear that my eyes are turning red

And still I answer half-heartedly
"I'm fine"
"I'm great"
I lie through my teeth

Sometimes I feel like falling
Take a breath, we'll scream up at the sky
Sometimes I feel like dying
But I keep trying to ignore the headlines

Ignore the headlines

Here we are back at the start again
Trying to stay afloat
We're swimming in circles again.

You'll never be good enough.
You'll never go far enough.
Don't believe everything you read.
That's what the headlines say to me.

You'll never be good enough.
You'll never break through enough.
Don't believe everything you read.
That's what the headlines say to me.
