Teenage dreams in a teenage circus

Running around like a clown on purpose

Who gives a damn about the family you come from?

No giving up when you’re young and you want some

 

Running around again

Running from running

 

Waking up

In the midday sun

What’s to live for?

You could see what I’ve done

Staring at emotion

In the light of day

I was running

From the things that you’d say

 

We are not what you think we are

We are golden, we are golden.

We are not what you think we are

We are golden, we are golden.

 

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus

Running around like a clown on purpose

Who gives a damn about the family you come from?

No giving up when you’re young and you want some

 

Running around again

Running from running

Running around again

Running from running

 

I was a boy

At an open door

Why you staring

Do you still think that you know?

Looking for treasure

In the things that you threw

Like a magpie

I live for glitter, not you

 

We are not what you think we are

We are golden, we are golden.

We are not what you think we are

We are golden, we are golden.

Who gives a damn about the family you come from

No giving up when you’re young and you want some

 

Now I’m sitting alone

I’m finally looking around

Left here on my own

I’m gonna hurt myself

Maybe losing my mind

I’m still wondering why

Had to let the world let it bleed dry

 

We are not what you think we are

We are not what you think we are

We are not what you think we are

We are golden, we are golden

We are not what you think we are

We are golden, we are golden.
