Like Moths To Flames — Some Nights lyrics

[Intro]
Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck,
Some nights I'll call it a draw.
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle,
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off.
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost,
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure of what I stand for.
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know
Anymore!

[Verse 1]
This is it, boys, this is war, what are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype - save that for the black and white.
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked, but here they come again to jack my style

That's alright; I got a martyr in my bed tonight,
She stops my bones from wondering just who I am,
Who I am, who I am
Oh, who am I?

Well, Some nights, I wish that this all would end,
'Cause I could use some friends for a change.
And some nights, I'm scared that you'll forget me again,
Some nights, I always win, I always win.

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost,
Oh Lord, I still not sure of what I stand for.
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know...
(So come on)

So this is it?
I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?
No!
When I see stars that's all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like this one (so come on)
(So come on)

Well, this is it, guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again.
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands!
This one is not for the folks at home; Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go
Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she called "love"
But when I look into my nephew's eyes,
Man you wouldn't believe, the most amazing things that can come from
Some terrible lies!
Some terrible lies!
Let's go!

The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me.
I called you up, but we'd both agree (we'd both agree)
It's for the best you didn't listen,
It's for the best we get our distance!
