lyrics

Before the silence becomes the din
Before the romance, before the sin
Where there’s smoke there’s fire, with love there’s grief
And all the parts of your heart the words don’t reach

Not what you do, but who that you know
The man on the street corner told me so
There’s end days coming, debts to pay
Every man for himself and God for me

So, we don’t need it
Leave the past behind
Hold on tightly now…
Dangerous Times

Catch your breath kid, you’re running on fumes
No he don’t need talk, he just assumes
Well one half fear and the other half lie
They’ll pray for you and spit in your eye

No, we don’t need it
Leave the past behind
Hold on tightly now…
Dangerous Times

We’re all looking for a place to sleep
Pretend our dreams are gonna set us free
We’ll wrap ourselves up in our lies
We’ll bite our tongue and shut our eyes

No, we don’t need it
Leave the past behind
Hold on tightly now…
Dangerous Times
