The Airborne Toxic Event - All The Children Lyrics



Time stands still when you’re always underage
So we learned to fake it like actors on a stage
Everyone we knew told us just what to do and how to feel about it
All our illusions fell. We knew them so well until we learned to doubt all of it

All the children know, if you jump, you fall
And if you jump too high, you fall harder than before
All the children say, «Why’d you let me down?
Tell me, when you going to come around?
I can’t live my life underground
Tell me, when you going to come around?»

Calling, mama…

Blue lights and shadows, we grew up way too fast
They stole our future. But they can’t steal our past
Everyone knows that’s where you go if you have to run now
If I’m not back by dawn, tell them I’ll be gone and I’ll stay gone somehow

All the children know, if you jump, you fall
And if you jump too high, you fall harder than before
All the children say, «Why’d you let me down?
Tell me, when you going to come around?
I can’t live my life underground
Tell me, when you going to come around?»

(Hold your tongue…)

Stop staring, stop staring, stop staring, oh stop staring
Stop staring, stop staring, stop staring, oh stop staring
Stop staring, stop staring, stop staring, oh stop staring at everyone…

All the children know if you run, you fall
And if you run too fast, you’ll fall harder than before…
All the children say, «Why’d you let me down?
Tell me, when you going to come around?
I can’t live my life underground
Tell me, when you going to come around?»

Calling, mama…
