lyrics

we were never gonna to save the world
we just wanted capes for when we jumped off our buildings
we were never going to save the world
we drank product placement then we ate all the profits
we were never gonna change the world
while we focused in on all the things that we still wanted
we were never gonna change the world, no we were never gonna save the world

we had never planned to change a thing
we just needed an illusion to hide what we’d been doing
we had never planned to change a thing
we had built too much for us to go about undoing
we had never planned to change a thing
we had weighed out all the outcomes but somehow come to doubt them
we were never planned to change a thing, and we were never gonna save the world

and all we’ve got when the fashion ends
is to wash the blood off our strangling hands
for our intentions were as scattered as our brains

I’ll take the blame
It’s the only thing you’ve left
I’ll take the blame

we were never gonna lay it down
we had our date with sacrifice and went to bed with actors
we were never gonna lay it down
we were convinced we meant it but it seems not, it seem to me
we’re never gonna lay it down, and that we’re never gonna save the world
