When We Stole the Universe

Me and you—we’ve got our lives tied in knots
We keep telling ourselves that we’ll beat them
From here on out, it’s us who call the shots
Is it cruel, how many souls we condemn?
Someday, we’ll dance on beaches in Cancun
Someday, we’ll race through brimming streets in Rome
And if they don’t stop, we’ll go to the moon
I don’t care about buildings—we are home
I could hold my breath ‘til my face stood blue
But our faith won’t break the past from its vault
Please, listen to me, my friend—I love you
Truly, it wasn’t my choice, it wasn’t our fault—
For all roads lead to one destination
And fate’s gun requires no ammunition
