Structure and lyrics:

 

Intro

 

Verse 1

take advantage of these times, you said

you let me down

it hasn't been the first time

as i'm falling in the pit of fire my mind's made up

i'm never coming back here

 

Chorus

how long would it take me to walk across the united states all alone?

the west coast has been traumatized

and i think i'm the only one still alive

 

Verse 2

is it just a coincidence to see you by yourself with no direction?

now its time to move on and

don't you know that things aren't getting better

 

Chorus

how long would it take me to walk across the united states all alone?

the west coast has been traumatized

and i think i'm the only one still alive

 

Bridge

when the world caves in what are you going to do

when the world caves in what are you going to do for me?

when the world caves in what are you going to do

when the world caves in what are you going to do for me?

 

(don't try and stop me

because i'm falling fast into this pit of fire which surrounds us all

in a blanket of fear that i've been wrapped in for years

you can't stop me)

 

Chorus (soft)

how long would it take me to walk across the united states all alone?

the west coast has been traumatized

and i think i'm the only one still alive

 

Chorus (hard)

how long would it take me to walk across the united states all alone?

the west coast has been traumatized

and i think i'm the only one still alive
