We were born to lose
With our future daring us to move
They simulate the fear
And we fight to make it disappear
But we’re upside down
Calling out to no reply
We watch the worlds collide
And we choose our side

Afraid to show our hands
The victims of our own demands
We imitate the stars
We’ll collapse and slowly pull apart
But we just remain
‘Cause we got way too much on the line
And if we lose our minds
Well, it’s just our time

The dream doesn’t die on its own
Your fate never leaves you alone
The dream doesn’t die on its own
It’s telling you not to let go
