And by the way, you know that hope
Will make you strange Make you blink, make you blink Make you sink
It will make you afraid of change Enough to blame the box with the view of the world 
And the walls that fill the frame I turn it up
But then I turn it off Because I can't stand When they start to talk about The hurting and killing Whose shoes are we feeling The damage and ruin
And the things that we're doing Gotta
We gotta stop
We gotta turn it all off
We gotta rewind Start it up again Because we fell across the fall line
Ain't nothing sacred anymore 
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
 Somebody saw him jump
Yeah, but nobody saw him slip
I guess he lost a lot a hope
And then he lost a grip
And now he's lying in the freeway In the middle of this mess Guess we lost another one, just like the other one
Optimistic, hypocrite that didn't have the nerve to quit
The things that kept him wanted more Until he finally reached the core
He fell across the fall line
Ain't nothing sacred anymore 
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
