lyrics

We got some sad boys up in here tonight
Acting like bad boys, because it never was right
To hear that mad voice in the back of their mind
That tell's them it's alright
That boys cry too sometimes
They're just sad boys

What’s the point in grief if you can’t overcome it?
Sorrow is a defect in them other guys
Build a cathedral of self improvement books
The future is gym membership man

And if you must be sad be sure to Instagram it
your brand it needs a sensitive side
But know in the end I will think less of you

Yeah less of you my brother.

So black it all out
Keep it all inside
Man up/man down
It's all the same to these sad boys

We got some sad boys up in here tonight
Acting like bad boys, because it never was right
To hear that mad voice in the back of their mind
That tell's them it's alright
That boys cry too sometimes
They're just sad boys

Beyond the firestorm lies a nuclear winter
Metal fused with bone could win the turner prize
You inhale the dust of your beloved, blind.
Your silhouetted vows make headlines.

The apocalypse might well have been avoided
had you seenit’s alright to not be alright.
As it is, what’s left?
Oh The worst, the worst of you my brother.

So black it all out
Keep it all inside
Man up/man down
It's all the same to these sad boys

We got some sad boys up in here tonight
Acting like bad boys, because it never was right
To hear that mad voice in the back of their mind
That tell's them it's alright
That boys cry too sometimes
They're just sad boys
