[Verse 1]
Can you hear me?
Are you far away... and distracted?
Or afraid of what I might say?
`Cause I know your every move

I can see things
That you walk right through
And I listen
To the lessons lost on you

In your race to escape the truth

Cause it seems to me
That the more you have
The more you want
And less you understand

[Chorus]
But I will be the one to break you open
Make you come undone and I will
Be the one to turn you over
Let you see what you've become

'Cause there's something in you
That's dying to come aliiiive
But you're happy hanging on
Just getting by

La la la la la la la la la la la

Yeah, you're happy
Hanging on
Just getting by

[Verse 2]
Has it faded?
Are you bored with the life you created?
Would you sacrifice yourself
To protect everything you own?

'Cause it's easy to ignore
Till the walls around you shatter
Nothing seems to matter
Anymore

La la la la la la la la la la la

Yeah, you're happy
Hanging on
Just getting by

Tell me why?
Why you're just getting by
Living lies
Tell me, tell me why???

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
But I will be the one to break you open
Make you come undone
And I will be the one to turn you over
Let you see what you've become

'Cause there's something in you
That's dying to come alive
But you're happy hanging on
Just getting by

La la la la la la la la la la la

Yeah, you're happy
Hanging on
Just getting by

[Outro]
Tell me why?
Why you're just getting by?
Living lies
Tell me, tell me why???

Why you're just getting by...
Living lies
Tell me, tell me why???
