One track mind like a goldfish
Stuck inside my petri dish
I can't breathe and I can't smile
This better be worth my while

I feel numb most of the time
Lower I get, the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine,
Looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice

Burn, burn, burn bright

Forgo family, forgo friends
It's how it started, how it ends
I can't open up and cry
'Cause I've been silent all my life

I feel numb most of the time
Lower I get, the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine,
Looking for the golden light
Oh it's a reasonable sacrifice

Burn, burn, burn bright
Burn, burn, burn bright

Ooh, I get dark, oh, and I'm in hell
I need a friend, ooh, but I can't yell
Yeah, I'm no good, no good to anyone
'Cause all I care about is being number one

Shine, looking for the golden light
Oh it's a reasonable sacrifice
Shine, looking for the golden light
Oh it's a reasonable sacrifice
Sacrifice

I feel numb most of the time
Lower I get, the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine,
And I'll light up the sky
Stars that burn the brightest
Fall so fast and pass you by
Puff like empty lighters

I feel numb most of the time
Lower I get, the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I get dark only to shine,
And I'll light up the sky
Stars that burn the brightest
Fall so fast and pass you by
Spark like empty lighters

Dum-da-da-dum, da-da-dum, da-da (...)
