lyrics

What do you do when you wanna put a bullet through your head
Just to kill the thoughts, not because you wish that you were dead
And I know my tongue is crossed but so are my fingers
The pain is all too much and the feeling just lingers

But when the heartbeat stops
And you can’t go
There’s nothing nothing nothing
Nothing you can do

Jump jump jump
To the beat of the drum
You got nothing goin for you
So just reach for the sun
Jump jump jump
Cause you’re desperate for love
And they won’t show mercy
So smile, smile, smile for everyone

A cry, a cry, a cry, cry for help
But you won’t recall a thing except the hatred for yourself
And you can kill yourself with a stick between your teeth
But the real power comes from a fire underneath

But as the ashes burn
And the smoke willows away
Each one will take their turn
But what god is left for me to pray?

Jump jump jump
To the beat of a heart
You got nothing goin for you
So just watch me fall apart
Jump jump jump
Cause you’re desperate for life
And they won’t show mercy
So smile
Jump jump jump
To the beat of the drum
You got nothing goin for you
So just reach for the sun
Jump jump jump
Cause you’re desperate for love
And they won’t show mercy
So smile, smile, smile for everyone

Am I the only one who hears voices in my mind
Does anyone else wonder why there’s nobody who’s kind
Why can I walk down the street and make eye contact
With a stranger and smile at him and him not smile back

What kind of world do we live in
Where we’re all terrified of the dark?

Jump jump jump
To the beat of a heart
You got nothing goin for you
So just watch me fall apart
Jump jump jump
Cause you’re desperate for life
And they won’t show mercy
So smile
Jump jump jump
To the beat of the drum
You got nothing goin for you
So just reach for the sun
Jump jump jump
Cause you’re desperate for love
And they won’t show mercy
So smile, smile, smile for everyone
