LyricsEdit

"What the fuck are y'all doing is the question?"
"This is the question"

The animals break out their cages now
Chaos is raining down around us
But here we stand with our arms folded
Do you wanna be free of this?

When panic rises like the oceans we
Just keep on flicking through the stations cause
If we don't post it does it happen
Oh I wanna be free of this

Have you and I been sleepwalking way too long
Won't someone pour ice water on me

It only matters if we care now
If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders
And I remember when we cared now
If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders, my shoulders

Movies and news on television
Sometimes it's hard to tell the differences oh
When real life's more fucked up than fiction
Do you wanna be free of this?

Have you and I been sleepwalking way too long
Won't someone pour ice water on me

It only matters if we care now
If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders
And I remember when we cared now
If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders

I don't wanna play dumb anymore
I just wanna feel something like before
I don't wanna feel numb anymore
I just wanna feel something like before

It only matters if we care now
If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders
And I remember when we cared now
If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders, my shoulders

"Television viewers have the choice of watching the tragedy play out from the safety and comfort of their living rooms. But victims had to respond to the pressure of the media while still in shock"

If you're way beyond that
Then I'm gonna dust you off of my shoulders, my shoulders
