Set It Off — Hush Hush lyrics

[Verse 1]
He tip toes from rip to break,
And skips the cracks where he gets sick.
Counting sheep, losing sleep,
Now his lids are heavy set.
Run for it, they're on the prowl,
These demons never make a sound.
Cries ignored,
Well, this cardboard box will keep him dry for now.

[Chorus]
Why do I give in
When I know it's not the only answer?
What a way to save my skin,
When my angst is growing like a cancer?
And know the things we'll say when they're standing in our way,
Maybe soon this all will be a distant memory.

[Verse 2]
There might as well be blood stains on this carpet floor,
He's laying face down wondering what fighting back is for.
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down,
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down,
And I'll be singin' when I turn around, "La la la la la la, la la la la la"

[Chorus]
Why do I give in
When I know it's not the only answer?
What a way to save my skin,
When my angst is growing like a cancer?
And know the things we'll say when they're standing in our way,
Maybe soon this all will be a distant memory.

[Hook]
Wars waged on life,
We wave it in defeat.
Take down the lights,
Soldier, on your feet.
I march head strong to shout aloud
That now, now, now I'm free!

[Bridge]
Why do I give in
When I know it's not the only answer?
What a way to save my skin,
When my angst is growing like a cancer?
And know the things we'll say when they're standing in our way,
Maybe soon this all will be a distant memory.

[Outro]
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la,
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down,
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down,
And I'll be singin' when I turn around,
"La la la la la la, la la la la la la la".
