We don't sleep very much
These triggers ache for the touch
Where's the strength we relied on?
Fear alone, like a crutch
Maybe that's what keeps us up
All night with the light on

All these screams simulate
Lives that no longer take place
Can this be what we've become?
Paper-thin, overweight
Pills to arouse or sedate
Still we don't know what we want

We can't let go
Can't you see?
To lose control
Is to be
Falling free

First a spark
Then a flame
Now a fire
We explode
Into the darkest of nights

Disconnect
Cut the cord
Lines are dead
Now they'll know
With everything comes a price

And each day we are torn
Between the right and the wrong
Between life and convenience
While you sleep, why complain?
There's always channels to change
It's like elective amnesia

As we grow older
In this place
Let's just start over
Let's erase what they made

First a spark
Then a flame
Now a fire
We explode
Into the darkest of nights

Disconnect
Cut the cord
Lines are dead
Now they'll know
With everything comes a price

It could be minutes away
It could be hours or days
Before the bottom falls out
Before the ground gives way
Into this debt we are born
A debt we try to repay
And yet we blacken the sky
Smoke rising out of the flames

Now they'll know

First a spark
Then a flame
Now a fire
We explode
Into the darkest of nights

Disconnect
Cut the cord
Lines are dead
Now they'll know
With everything comes a price

We explode
We explode

With everything comes a price

We explode
We explode
