lyrics

Everybody's craving your attention
They've got your back against the wall
All eyes are looking in your direction
Like you should know them all
I could be your distraction
I could give you a taste
Of what it's like to be no one
To be just another nameless face

Everybody's making their connections
Through their favorite pickup lines
Everybody's striving for perfection
In the corner of their minds
They're all selling their reactions
Hoping that you'll buy
And complete the transaction
Before they say goodbye

If I give a little bit
Would you take until I have no more to give?
If I fall a little bit
Would you help me up or push me over the edge?
I've seen what goes on
After the sparks have all gone

Everybody's shouting out corrections
Of what they really want
Everybody's pushing their deceptions
'Cause they're afraid it's all they've got

If I give a little bit
Would you take until I have no more to give?
If I fall a little bit
Would you help me up or push me over the edge?
I've seen what goes on
After the sparks have all gone
Why do we stay? Why do we stay?
Why do we live life this way?
Why do we play? Why do we play?
These games that we play?
