lyrics

I used to understand you.
No, that's misleading, I still do.
You've always been so proud of
this hurricane that follows you.

You're demanding, outstanding,
you're high above the rest
and you love to let everybody know.
And you're the Queen Bee and we'll see
you're nothing but the best
and you never let it go.

It's never been in question
whether you have got direction,
but you need to stay grounded.
It's for everyone's protection.
You're laughing at this dance,
but you don't understand the circumstance.
I'm running out of reasons
to give you another chance
so light up.

It's all about the pretense.
It's all about the imaginary.
It's all about the showmanship,
so when you lose out you walk free.

You're drowning in the ocean!
You won't let anybody hear you shout.
You know that if they heard you,
they might just try to help you out.

And you're outstanding, demanding
that everybody sees
you're the greatest liar
still at large.
And you're destructive, conductive
to electricity
and you
CHARGE.

It's never been in question
whether you have got direction,
but you need to stay grounded.
It's for everyone's protection.
You're laughing at this dance,
but you don't understand the circumstance.
I'm running out of reasons
to give you another chance
so

Light up your darkened thoughts now.
Look back upon all you've wrought now.
Light up your darkened dreaming.
Ignore the ghosts. Ignore their screaming.
Light up your poisonous plans.
Your fate is out of your hands.
Yesterday won't come back to you
so try to think things through.

It's never been in question
whether you have got direction,
but you need to stay grounded.
It's for everyone's protection.
You're laughing at this dance,
but you don't understand the circumstance.
I'm running out of reasons
to give you another chance.

It's never been in question
whether you have got direction,
but you need to stay grounded.
It's for everyone's protection.
You're laughing at this dance,
but you don't understand the circumstance.
I'm running out of reasons
to give you another chance
so

Light up your darkened thoughts now.
Look back upon all you've wrought now.
Light up your darkened dreaming.
Ignore the ghosts. Ignore their screaming.
Light up your poisonous plans.
Your fate is out of your hands.
Yesterday won't come back to you
so try to think things through

and light up
