    Lyrics

    There's a humming in the restless summer air
    And we're slipping off the course that we prepared
    But in all chaos, there is calculation
    Dropping glasses just to hear them break

    You've been drinking like the world was gonna end (It didn't)
    Took a shiner from the fist of your best friend (Go figure)
    It's clear that someone's gotta go
    We mean it, but I promise we're not mean

    And the cry goes out (Oh)
    They lose their minds for us
    And how it plays out (Oh)
    Now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood

    [Chorus]
    (Oh, oh) You could try and take us
    (Oh, oh) But we're the gladiators
    (Oh, oh) Everyone a rager
    (Oh, oh) But secretly they're saviours
    Glory and gore go hand in hand
    That's why we're making headlines
    (Oh, oh) You could try and take us
    (Oh, oh) But victory's contagious

    Delicate in every way but one (The swordplay)
    God knows we like archaic kinds of fun (The old ways)
    Chance is the only game I play with, baby
    We let our battles choose us

    And the cry goes out (Oh)
    They lose their minds for us
    And how it plays out (Oh)
    Now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood

    [Chorus]
    (Oh, oh) You could try and take us
    (Oh, oh) But we're the gladiators
    (Oh, oh) Everyone a rager
    (Oh, oh) But secretly they're saviours
    Glory and gore go hand in hand
    That's why we're making headlines
    (Oh, oh) You could try and take us
    (Oh, oh) But victory's contagious

    No one around here's good at keeping their eyes closed
    The sun's starting to light up when we're walking home
    Tired little laughs, gold-lie promises:
    We'll always win at this; I don't ever think about death
    It's alright if you do, it's fine

    We gladiate, but I guess we're really fighting ourselves
    Roughing up our minds so we're ready when the killtime comes
    Wide awake in bed, words in my brain:
    "Secretly you love this; Do you even wanna go free?"
    Let me in the ring, I'll show you what that big word means

    [Chorus]
    (Oh, oh) You could try and take us
    (Oh, oh) But we're the gladiators
    (Oh, oh) Everyone a rager
    (Oh, oh) But secretly they're saviours
    Glory and gore go hand in hand
    That's why we're making headlines
    (Oh, oh) You could try and take us
    (Oh, oh) But victory's contagious
