lyrics

You open up the door and let in light, it's too much light. Goodnight.
When you walk the adult world it's never worth that dreaded step outside.
Well, I did not agree to this and
I cannot believe in this, no.

I only dream in grey. I only live one day.
And I can't hit the high notes like you do.
Stilted is my spectrum, I only know dejection.
And I can't hit the high notes like you do.

And the headache is embedded, it's endemic to our deadened kind.
When you walk the adult world it's never worth that dreaded step outside.
Saying "I did not agree to this and
I cannot believe in this" - no more!

I only dream in grey. I only live one day.
And I can't hit the high notes like you do.
Stilted is my spectrum, I only know dejection.
And I can't hit the high notes like you do.
Revoke the participation trophy.

WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WOE IS ME|WHAT OF THIS?
We always said we'd try, this time I'm going down without a fight, c'mon.

I only dream in grey. I only live one day.
And I can't hit the high notes like you do.
Stilted is my spectrum, I squander your affections.
And I can't hit the high notes; lucky you.
I only dream in grey. I only live one day.
And I can't hit the high notes.
You wanna ride with me, you better grit your teeth.
