Face down with the LA curbside endings
And the ones in zeros. Downtown was the perfect place to hide.
The first star that I saw last night was a headlight Of a man-made sky, but man-made never made our dreams collide,
Collide.

Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening Here we are now with our desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talking in your sleep About a dream, we're awakening 
Last week saw me living for nothing but deadlines,
With my dead beat sky but, this town doesn't look the same tonight These dreams started singing to me out of nowhere And in all my life I don't know if I've ever felt so alive, Alive 
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening Here we are now with our desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talking in your sleep About a dream, we're awakening 
I want to wake up kicking and screaming I want to wake up kicking and screaming I want to know that my heart's still beating
It's beating,
I'm bleeding I want to wake up kicking and screaming I want to live like I know what I'm leaving I want to know that my heart's still beating,
It's beating, it's beating, it's beating,
I'm bleeding 
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening Here we are now with our desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talk-talking in your sleep About a dream, we're awakening dream, we're awakening, yeah
