And by the way, you know that hope

Make you blink, make you blink
Make you sink

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

We gotta stop
We gotta turn it all off
We gotta rewind
Start it up again

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
