Bastille Way Beyond Lyrics

“What the fuck are y’all doing is the question

This is the question”

The animals break out their cages now

Chaos is raining down around us

But here we stand with our arms folded

Do you wanna be free of this?

When panic rises like the oceans we

Just keep on flicking through the stations cause

If we don’t post it does it happen

Oh I wanna be free of this

Have you and I been sleepwalking way too long

Won’t someone pour ice water on me

It only matters if we care now

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders

And I remember when we cared now

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders, my shoulders

Movies and news on television

Sometimes it’s hard to tell the differences oh

When real life’s more fucked up than fiction

Do you wanna be free of this?

Have you and I been sleepwalking way too long

Won’t someone pour ice water on me

It only matters if we care now

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders

And I remember when we cared now

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders

I don’t wanna play dumb anymore

I just wanna feel something like before

I don’t wanna feel numb anymore

I just wanna feel something like before

It only matters if we care now

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders

And I remember when we cared now

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders, my shoulders

“Television viewers have the choice of watching the tragedy play out from the safety and comfort of their living rooms. But victims had to respond to the pressure of the media while still in shock”

If you’re way beyond that

Then I’m gonna dust you off of my shoulders, my shoulders
